Food Reader awards ceremony in pictures.
Leading foodies from the across the South West gathered on Monday night at the Food Reader Awards 2017, which was held at Fodder restaurant at Yeo Valley HQ in Somerset.
The awards which gained nearly 100,000 votes this year celebrate the favourite South West chefs, restaurants, hotels and foodie hot spots across the region.
The theme for the evening was a ‘wild and wintry’ feast – lots of tweed, hearty sumptuous food, woodland themed awards room, eerie forests and lantern lit corridors greeted guests..
I was covering the ceremony photographing the winners who were announced in between each course and each dish as they came out the kitchen. The wintry supper included Pipers Farm Chicken, baby leek and truffle terrine, Holt Farm sirloin, mushroom ravioli, roast salsify, red wine and thyme liquor, and toffee apple yogurt parfait, with liquid refreshment from Sharp’s Brewery.
