"Fortnum & Mason created the Awards nine years ago to celebrate the achievements of the UK’s writers, editors, publishers, photographers and broadcasters – in fact everyone involved in bringing our love of food and drink to life. It’s a tremendous honour to be the Panel Chair this year.

Fortnum & Mason joins me in thanking our expert judging panel for their time and expertise, and our best wishes go to everyone who enters."
