Has your favourite business made the final cut in the 2018 Eat Norfolk Food and Drink Awards?
Well folks, the results are in. Our judges have deliberated, dined, and made their final decisions for the Eat Norfolk Food and Drink Awards 2018.
On September 10 at a black tie dinner held at Open in Norwich, the winners will be announced, but today we can officially tell you all who the lucky finalists are.
Eat editor Charlotte Smith-Jarvis said: “Norfolk, and East Anglia as a whole, are ripe with beautiful food and drink, and truly passionate producers who go the extra mile to showcase some of the incredible ingredients on offer. From cheeses, to ice cream, to coffee, cakes, gin, wine, beer and meat - the list goes on - we have it all here and you really don’t need to travel far to eat well. What strikes me time and time again about the food industry in Norfolk too is the tremendous sense of community and pride amongst producers and chefs. They collaborate, bounce ideas off one another, and support each other. It is truly an inspirational environment to be a part of and every single one of our finalists is a local food hero.”
