Celebrating Excellence and Variety in British Cuisine
With diversity and quality at an all-time high in British food, the awards celebrate food producers, chefs and restaurants in all their glory, from the best chippy to the best organic producer, from a heritage award to an outstanding achievement award. We celebrate the people behind the menu and feature winners in poignant, funny and compelling tributes telling their stories of hard work, determination, willpower and above all, the quality of their craft.
