The beginning of the year brings with it a flurry of award shows. The bests in the world of cinema are honoured with BAFTAs and the best in the world of food and drink in Bristol are honoured with the Bristol Good Food Award. The Bristol Good Food Awards sift out the crème de la crème of the food industry from the rest of the crowd. Having this award on your mantelpiece is definitely something worth entering for.
The awards are restricted to Bristol and have a wide range of categories under which food and drink producers can enter. The categories include Local Charcuteries, Local Beer, Local Farm Shop and much more. The only restriction to entering the competition is that the producer must be located within a 50 mile radius of Bristol.
The procedure for entering is fairly simple but the competition is rather intense. Enter your name into the category of your choice, there are no restrictions on the number of categories that you may enter. The public votes to pick the top three producers in each category.
So to get those votes coming in get all your patrons to make sure that they vote for your establishment. The top three producers from each category will then be judged by an esteemed panel of food connoisseurs.
The top three producers will get their wares for a panel consisting of Angela Mount, Martin Blunos, Dhruv Baker, Richard Bertinet, Xanthe Clay, Thane Prince and Barbora Steiss. A wine expert, local food gods, food writers, TV presenters and academy heads are definitely worth impressing for that coveted trophy.
The awards are to take place on June 30 at the Bristol Marriot Royal Hotel. The Awards function like any other will be open to one and all as long as you can manage to get your ticket for the shindig. All the short listed candidates will be present in their dapper best with bated breathes. A little contest is also there for the voters – a meal for two and a night’s stay is up for grabs too!
