For the third year running Beverley Town Council will be teaming up with East Yorkshire Local Food Network for the food awards.
Ahead of the annual Beverley Food Festival that takes in October at Saturday Market, the Local Food Awards will give those who are linked with the event or members of the East Yorkshire Local Food Network an opportunity to showcase their skills and be acknowledged for their efforts.
A commercial competition entrants can choose from a number of categories and have until 1st August to enter the prestigious awards.
This year will also see Beverley Town Council continue their ongoing work with local young people as students from East Riding College will play a role in helping deliver the competition.
Town Clerk Helen Watson said;
“Beverley Town Council is delighted to be working with EYLFN again. We have been running the Beverley Food Festival awards for 10 years as part of the Food Festival.”
“It has been good to work with the EYLFN for the last two years to join the awards together, as we are all striving for the same awards of excellence in local food.”
Commenting on the involvement of East Riding College, she said;
“By engaging with the college and their students it is a further extension of what we are doing to work with young people.”
“This follows on nicely from a very successful Civic Dinner that was delivered by the college and their students.”
John Doris, Vice Principal, Finance and Resources at East Riding College, said:
“It was a pleasure to host the launch of Beverley Food Festival at our Elwell’s restaurant, and we are looking forward to taking part in the festival itself.”
“The festival programme is excellent, and it will be yet another event, which will bring people to Beverley to see what the town has to offer.”
The 11th Beverley Food Festival will be held on 2 October 2016 and will feature numerous stalls as well as live cooking demos from top local chefs.
Attracting 1000s of people into the Town, the Beverley Food Festival is widely regarded as one of the key events staged in Beverley.
Anyone wishing to enter the competition has until the August 2016 to register their interest with either Beverley Town Council or EYLFN.
