The Yorkshire Evening Post industry awards are now into their 11th year and this year looks set to be one of our busiest ever, thanks in part to our panel of expert judges, who will be casting their eyes over our nominations list.
The judges are consultant chef Stephanie Moon, a renowned industsry expert who has worked with some of the biggest names in the food industry and who has also cooked fo the Queen. Alongside her is renowned beer writer Simon Jenkins, an author in his own right and the YEP’s regular Taverner columnist and finally there is Amanda Wragg, who has decades of experience in the food industry and is a former columnist for The Times.
In the last week alone, we have received over 100 new category nominations, taking the total to over 230.
The Oliver Awards was founded to shine a light on the local dining scene and to help promote chefs and restaurateurs who are going the extra mile to create a special experience for diners. This year, we have extended the awards to include breweries.
