We’re very pleased to bring you our inaugural Berkshire Life and Buckinghamshire Life Food & Drink Awards

The awards are designed to champion, highlight and offer a showcase to the good and the great from Berkshire and Buckinghamshire’s food and drink industry including local producers and suppliers, small farming businesses, chefs, restaurants, pubs and hoteliers, and people who care about the countryside and the future of our local environment.

The companies nominated are all voted for by you, our readers. We want to know if you’ve received a fantastic meal at your local pub or have been impressed by the produce and service at your farmers’ market or farm shop.

Entry forms are available in the June issue and will be repeated in the July issue.

Our panel of excellent judges will then select a shortlist, kick starting the independent judging process where finalists will be visited to determine a worthy winner in each category. All of the finalists will be invited to the prestigious awards ceremony.

These awards are what you make of them so if you are the owner of a restaurant, a budding chef or local producer then help to spread the word amongst your customers. With our online voting system up and running, it takes no time at all to cast your vote.

The judging panel are looking for a combination of volume of votes as well as strong comments so everybody is in with a chance no matter how big or small your business is.

Entries close on Friday, July 12 and all entries are completely free of charge.
