Clock is tick­ing to­wards nom­i­na­tions dead­line


En­tries are piling in for our food and drink awards

The search for the best in Nor­folk food and drink has got off to a flying start. Al­ready hun­dreds of en­tries have been re­ceived for our 2019 Eat Nor­folk Food & Drink Awards, sponsored by the East of Eng­land Co-op.

We aim to recog­nise the amaz­ing ar­ray of tal­ent and skill right across the county and se­lect the cream of the crop for our stel­lar cel­e­bra­tion and awards night on Mon­day, Septem­ber 9 at OPEN, Nor­wich, when all the win­ners will be re­vealed.

It’s not too late to get in­volved by nom­i­nat­ing your favourite food and drink superstar and if you’re in the busi­ness you are wel­come to put your­self for­ward. Don’t be mod­est!

Maybe you’ve vis­ited

an amaz­ing restau­rant, or un­cov­ered a bril­liant baker or taken the fam­ily out to a dinner to die for. If you have a look at the cat­e­gories there’s bound to be some­thing that re­flects the great ex­pe­ri­ences you’ve had in Nor­folk.

Once all the nom­i­na­tions are in, our panel of ex­pert and in­de­pen­dent judges will be­gin the tough task of seek­ing out those out­stand­ing en­tries and se­lect­ing the ones who have re­ally made a dif­fer­ence or gone that ex­tra yard. The dead­line is June 9 but don’t de­lay; visit our web­site and fill in the easy form.

Of course none of this would hap­pen with­out the fan­tas­tic sup­port of our sponsors who have come for­ward to cham­pion the awards.

We’re very pleased to wel­come Richard Hughes Cook­ery School back as sponsors of the Home Chef of the Year award, a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for all you tal­ented am­a­teur chefs out there to step for­ward and show what you can do!

And Nor­wich Re­search Park, with strong links to food and farm­ing, has joined us to spon­sor the Pride of Nor­folk Award, al­ways a pop­u­lar cat­e­gory with a wide range of entrants.

We are also de­lighted to have Victoria Mar­quees join the awards as the spon­sor of the ta­ble brochure on the gala evening and Pros­per Re­cruit­ment as spon­sor of the end-of-night win­ners’ brochure.
