Our SponsorsOur Sponsors

Designed to champion, highlight and offer a showcase for the great and the good from the region’s food and drink industry, the first ever Derbyshire Life Food & Drink Awards are set to be a highlight of the county’s culinary calendar.

Our independent panel of judges has spent the summer assessing the contenders from the list of nominations made by you, and have recently announced their shortlist.

The judges are Alan Hill, chef patron at Devonshire Hotels and Restaurants; Clare Major, owner of Seasoned Cookery School at Walton-on-Trent; and Rob Stordy, lecturer in Culinary Arts at the University of Derby’s Buxton campus.

Reaching the shortlist is in itself a mark of excellence and the judges have stressed how competitive the categories are – testament to the excellent standards of Derbyshire’s hospitality industry and the hardworking people behind the businesses.

The winners will be revealed at an awards ceremony to be held at Casa hotel in Chesterfield on 18th November.
