Norfolk food lovers have three more weeks to nominate their favourites for the Aylsham Food Heroes Awards, run by the Aylsham Show.

The awards, in their 7th year, recognise those who have helped put the county on the food map. Nominations close on April 30.

Dozens of nominations have been received since the awards were launched in February, but organisers are urging the public to make more – especially for the category of individual food hero.

This accolade is awarded to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the production or promotion of Norfolk-based food or drink, and could be a farmer, fisherman, chef, butcher, food writer of school cook.

A new category for 2013 is best specialist food or drink producer selling only their own produce, which will be judged by Norfolk food writer and cook Mary Kemp.
