Top chefs and food names including Michel Roux Jr, John Torode, Simon Rogan, Grace Dent and Nathan Outlaw have been enlisted as judges for this year’s Great British Food Awards.
The awards were launched in 2014 to celebrate the country’s finest home-grown produce, as well as the talented people who cook with them. This year, the event is set to be bigger and better than ever, with a diverse selection of new categories and well-regarded celebrity judges, as well as a new ‘Grand Champion’ award for the best product entered across all categories. This will be judged by the team at acclaimed Chelsea food hall Partridges.
Natasha Lovell-Smith, editor of Great British Food magazine – who organise the awards - said, “We’re all about boosting small local producers, who may be well known in their regions but have yet to get the national recognition we think they deserve.”
“The quality of entries last year was just spectacular, and I can’t wait to see what our judges discover this time.”
Categories include English Wine, British Charcuterie, Preserves, Bakes, Gluten Free and Fresh Meat. Winners from the 2016 awards include Bodnant Welsh Food’s Traditional Welsh Salted Butter, Scarlett & Mustard’s Rhubarb & Vanilla Curd and Hambledon Vineyard’s Premiere Cuvée sparkling wine.
