Entries are being sought from across the Causeway Coast and Glens for the first ever Northern Ireland Year of Food and Drink Awards.
They’ll celebrate the brightest and best of our food, drink, hospitality and tourism industries. Organisations and producers who are not just making food but who are creating unforgettable food experiences for tourists and for the people who live here are encouraged to get involved. The Awards are supported by Food NI in association with the Belfast Telegraph.
Winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony and dinner at the Culloden Hotel outside Belfast on February 2. Entries, which need to be lodged by the morning of Friday, 6 January 2017, will be judged by a panel of distinguished experts including food critic Charles Campion, food author Georgina Campbell, Belfast Telegraph restaurant critic Joris Minne and Professor Una McMahon-Beattie, head of the department of hospitality and tourism management at Ulster University.
