chaired by angela hartnett

The judges seek to reward work where a blend of strong professional skills and sound judgement provide a greater understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of good food and drink. Inspiration, education and pleasure derived from the work are of equal value.

Angela Hartnett OBE

Panel Chair, Chef Proprietor, Murano

"I cannot believe it’s been 10 years since I sat on the Judging Panel for the very first Fortnum & Mason Awards back in 2013. I’ve watched the Awards grow to be a standout event for the industry and I’m immensely proud to be Panel Chair again this year. I wish everyone who enters the very best of luck.”
