Kent Life and Kent on Sunday Food & Drink Awards 2017: Food and Drink Hero of the Year
PUBLISHED: 10:18 17 October 2017 | UPDATED: 11:02 17 October 2017
We reveal the winner of the Food and Drink Hero of the Year award
As we have learnt tonight, Kent has a fabulously vibrant food and drink scene featuring an ever-changing spectrum of new restaurants, tasty produce and talented chefs. This final category is designed to celebrate an individual who is making the most significant contribution to the county’s food and drink community. It could be a local celebrity, journalist, food critic, farmer or farmer’s wife, chef, landlord, barman, sommelier or maitre d’. But what this award is looking to achieve more than anything else is to recognise someone who goes above and beyond their everyday job to make a difference to the Kent food and drink industry.
