Ceremony

 

In the first year for the Awards, we will not be hosting a physical event. The results will be announced online on October 1.

 

Future Years

In future years, with Covid restrictions behind us and a broader and deeper list of Finalists we will host a physical lunch and ceremony, with a Reception beginning at 12.00 noon and lunch served from 1.00 pm.

For the 2022 Awards and beyond, the full menu will be published on this page together with any vegetarian alternatives as soon as they are agreed. Wines will be served with lunch, with mineral waters. Beers and soft drinks may also be available.

Everyone attending will be asked if they have any special dietary requirements in advance of the event so that Chef can cater for all.

The Awards will be presented after lunch during a ceremony hosted by a professional presenter that is expected to last no more than 60 minutes. 

Both category Winners and High Commendation recipients will go on stage to receive their awards. Photographs of each recipient will be taken and made available online on the morning following the Awards, if not sooner.

Please use the “BOOK AWARDS PLACES” button in the right-hand column to reserve your places at the Awards in future. The button will be visible and active from June 1, each year.

If Covid-19 restriction prevent a live physical event, contingency plans will be in place for a virtual awards ceremony streamed online. Trophies will be sent out to recipients on the day of the Awards and there will still be a Winners supplement available online to download as a PDF file.
