We are delighted to bring you the third Kent Life and Kent on Sunday Food & Drink Awards and look forward to receiving your nominations

Nominations are now being encouraged for the 2015 Kent Life and Kent on Sunday Food & Drink Awards. The awards dinner will take place at Ashford International Hotel on Thursday 15 October 2014, from 6.30pm to midnight.

The prestigious awards, which launched in 2013, are designed to champion, highlight and offer a showcase to the great and the good from the region’s food and drink industry, including local producers and suppliers, small farming businesses, chefs, restaurants, pubs and hoteliers.

All will be people who care about the countryside and the future of our local environment.

The companies included will all nominated by you, our wonderful Kent Life and Kent on Sunday readers. We want to know if you’ve received a fantastic meal at your local pub or have been impressed by the produce and service at your neighbourhood Farmers’ Market or farm shop.

The nomination form is available in this issue and will be repeated next month. It is also available to complete online at: http://kentfda.co.uk, where you can read more about the awards and see pictures of last year’s winners.

Entries close on 31 July 2015. Our handpicked panel of high-profile judges who all live and work in Kent will then select a shortlist, kickstarting the independent judging process where finalists will be visited or interviewed to determine a worthy winner in each category.

All finalists will be invited to the prestigious awards ceremony on 15 October 2015, where they will enjoy a Champagne reception and three-course meal with wine before finding out if they are a winner.

This is our third Kent Life and Kent on Sunday Food & Drink Awards and we are immensely proud to be able to offer you once again the opportunity to reward and recognise the deserving businesses within our local food and drink industry that go above and beyond expectations.

These awards are what you make of them so if you are the owner of a restaurant, a chef or local producer then spread the word among your clients, customers and visitors.

It takes no time at all to make your nomination. You can email, post or nominate online. The judging panel are looking for quality over quantity, focusing on good comments rather than simply the number of nominations received, so everybody is in with a chance no matter how big or small their business.
