Over 2000 of our lovely readers voted for their favourites in 19 categories of the Great British Food Awards. And now, it’s time to announce the results…

We’re well known for our Great British Food Awards, which were started in 2014 to celebrate the very best products on Britain’s artisan food and drink scene. Each year we have a roster of wonderful celebrity chefs - from The Hairy Bikers to Monica Galetti - as judges across 50 different categories. But we also wanted our readers to have a say. This year, 19 categories in the Great British Food Awards, from Best Pub to Best Cookbook are voted exclusively for by you!

Over the past few months, our readers have been nominating our favourites in multiple categories, and we’re pleased to announce the shortlist. Now it’s up to you to vote for the winners. You’ll be in with a chance of winning over £4000 of foodie prizes too!
