On Monday 8 November, the inaugural Hertfordshire Life Food and Drink Awards were held at Sopwell House in St Albans.
After six months of preparation, and hundreds of nominations from the local public and Hertfordshire businesses, the 12 winners were announced at a glittering luncheon hosted by TV chef Joe Hurd.
More than 160 guests filled the hotel’s St Alban suite - including 36 finalists, sponsors, industry judges and VIPs.
“It was fantastic to see so many at our first food and drink awards and to see the passion for the industry in the county.
"I’d like to thank the main sponsors, Sopwell House and Christopher Place shopping centre; the category sponsors Moneyhill Interiors, Dobsons Home, BBW Solicitors, Braughing Sausages and Enjoy Dacorum; and associate sponsor Cannatella and Colletti for their generous support of the awards” said Hertfordshire Life Editor, Richard Young.
