Taste Cheshire reveal Food and Drink Awards Finalists

Taste Cheshire Awards Dinner 2018 FDMB North West

With a staggering 44,000 votes cast in the Taste Cheshire Food and Drink Awards, the organisers have announced the finalists in each of the categories for 2019.

A thrilled Taste Cheshire CEO Stephen Wundke said: “Every year now, for two decades the people of Cheshire have been voting for their favourite places in these awards and this year more than ever they have cast their votes. Our special thanks to our sponsors of each award without whom we wouldn’t be able to continue to stage these awards. Each year, at our Presentation Dinner, when we crown our champions, we get to see just how important these awards are, to those within the industry. It is very satisfying seeing so many people all together at the very top of their profession. Now comes the hard part as each nomination is now mystery dined and shopped by industry experts over the coming 4 weeks to see who will be, the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners. So, if you are dining alone over the next few weeks you just might get some exceptional, above and beyond service! I wish every nomination the best of luck and look forward to seeing many of our winners at the presentation”
