Entries are open for a brand new food awards programme that will celebrate the best of the food and drink scene in Coventry and Warwickshire.
The inaugural Foodie Awards 2021, in partnership with Visit Coventry and supporting The Trussell Trust and Food Banks across the region, were launched in July and will recognise businesses across the sector, from artisan producers to chefs, street food traders, restaurants and bars.
Three special awards will also recognise businesses and individuals who went above and beyond during the coronavirus pandemic – including a COVID-19 Resilience Award backed by Visit Coventry and The Godiva Award, sponsored by Coventry BID.
Esteemed local butcher Aubrey Allen is also sponsoring the awards, with Managing Director Russell Allen set to join the panel of judges.
Entries for the awards, which will culminate in a ceremony in spring 2021 following a finalists’ night on 25 January at Coventry’s new Telegraph Hotel, officially opened on Friday 7 August and businesses across Warwickshire and Coventry are urged to get involved.
Categories include best artisan food and drink producers, best farm shop, best independent food and drink retailer, best newcomer, best street food trader and best chef or cook of the year, as well as best food/drink experience.
