200 guests, finalists and sponsors joined Berkshire Life & Buckinghamshire Life to celebrate the inaugural Berkshire Life & Buckinghamshire Life Food & Drink Awards at Ascot Racecourse on 6th September. Hosted by Beverley Glock, the awards celebrated the good and the great from the region’s food & drink industry.

Editor, Janice Raycroft commented: “Within our counties we have some of the most beautiful countryside just a few minutes away from a communication network that enables all the wonderful results of this food and drink production to reach discerning consumers both ‘down the road’ and across the country. And then there is our vast array of excellent restaurants, café’s, pubs and hotels who are dedicated to supporting local produce. Without the hard work and dedication of all of our finalists, we simply wouldn’t have a basis for these awards and I want to congratulate all our finalists in achieving so much and, most of all, for receiving the recognition from our readers.”
