2018 Cheshire Life Food and Drink Awards


It’s time to nominate your favourites!

The heat is on as the search for winners in our annual Cheshire Life Food and Drink Awards begins. Our panel of judges is poised to secretly visit the county’s dining establishments to discover the shining stars of the culinary scene and we want you to help by nominating your favourite in the categories included on this page.

The black tie occasion is always a glamorous affair and this year will be no exception, as it is with great pleasure that we can announce that for the third year running the venue on Monday July 16th will be the magnificent Carden Park, near Chester.

Executive Head Chef Graham Tinsley MBE and his team will showcase their skills by creating a delicious menu.

Said Graham, who last year won the coveted Chef of the Year title: ‘This event truly highlights the best in the industry and in particular my team and I always look forward to creating a show-stopping menu using the finest Cheshire ingredients. The awards are a fantastic opportunity for attendees to enjoy an evening of celebration and reward the dedication of everyone in hospitality.’

Cheshire Life is also pleased to have prestigious sponsors on board again. They include headline sponsors Stephensons who said: ‘ We are absolutely delighted to be the headline sponsors for the 2018 Cheshire Life Food & Drink Awards Having supported the catering and hospitality industry for 150 years, we know the effort it takes to excel and to be recognised for food and drink service in an area as competitive as the North West.

Another sponsor, Hallgarten Wines said: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity which allows us to strengthen our relationship with local producers, restaurants, pubs and hoteliers.’

Other sponsors include Porsche Centre, Chester, Tea from the Manor, Whitehouse Event Crockery and Total Food Service.
