THE TASTE CHESHIRE FOOD AND DRINK AWARDS ARE RETURNING – Now is the time to have your say in Cheshire’s definitive Food and Drink Awards.

Voting opens Friday 15th July 2022 for the Taste Cheshire Food and Drink Awards 2022.

Since 1999 the best restaurants, pubs, producers, and shops in the Cheshire area have gotten together once a year to enjoy a well-earned night off and celebrate the incredibly high standards they have created in local hospitality. The awards are now the benchmark for customer satisfaction and company achievement and previous winners proudly display their plaques in venues across the county.

The Taste Cheshire awards are unique in that they are voted for by the public in the opening stage. Each category is open for the public to nominate anyone they chose from the local area in each category, they don’t have to be a Taste Cheshire member to be considered.

Taste Cheshire CEO Briony Wilson said, “We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing the food and drink awards back to the county. We have been asked constantly since lockdown about them and everyone is so excited to once again take a moment to recognise the enormous achievements of food and drink in Cheshire. Not only is it a wonderful opportunity to celebrate these passionate and dedicated people, it’s also the best night out of the year for the teams! We are delighted to have included some new categories this year too, highlighting the changing priorities of the industry, such as the Green Award for Sustainability, the Cheshire Cocktail Champion and Event Venue of the Year. Cheshire truly is The County of Food and Drink. At Taste Cheshire we are proud to be able to shout about our venues and producers and to honour those at the pinnacle of their profession with these awards”

These judges will then complete a report on each venue; the report becomes available to the venue after the winners have been announced, showing how their business was judged. The judging is one of total transparency which is why these awards are so special. Nominated by customers and judged by industry experts.

The 2022 winners will be crowned at a glittering dinner on the 28th of September which will be held at the Pavilion at Chester Racecourse.Tickets for this event are £65.00 per person with a table of ten costing £620 and include a pre-dinner cocktail and a 4 course gala meal provided by Horseradish Catering.
