About the Awards - Great British Food Magazine:
“We're very excited to be able to officially announce the Great British Food Awards 2017 Shortlist. You can find the full list here:
“The Awards were launched in 2014 to celebrate the country's finest home-grown ingredients, as well as the hard-working folk who produce and cook with them. This year we've gone bigger and better than ever, with lots of new categories and celebrity judges.”
Behind the scenes our team of judges, including John Torode, Rachel Allen, Val Warner and Nathan Outlaw are busy taste testing the very best in British food and drink. Their findings will be unveiled in our October issue, out September 8th.
“We had an unprecedented amount of high-quality entries and it's been a really tough competition to judge. Our expert judges are now busy taste testing the shortlist to pick the final winners, which will be announced later this summer.”
