The Flavours of Herriot Country Awards are all about you…
Welcome to our 9th Flavours of Herriot Country awards, which has now become one of the most highly recognised and respected events on the annual awards calendar for Yorkshire.
What makes the Flavours of Herriot Country Awards so significant? It’s all about recognising and honouring the hard work and dedication of the wealth of food and drink businesses across Richmondshire and Hambleton – our wonderful Herriot Country.
We have such an amazing array of food businesses across this stunning part of Yorkshire, and having extended the categories to try and encompass them all, we want to encourage everyone to enter.
We have an independent team of highly experienced and respected food and drink experts on our judging panel, headed by our chair of judges, Susie Brindley (pictured centre), who have committed their time in helping us find the worthiest of finalists. They have the unenviable task, apart from the tasting and testing, of choosing our outstanding and well deserved winners, and it could be you!
This years awards event, presented by Elly Fiorentini, BBC Radio York, will be a very special and exciting occasion, when we all gather together to celebrate, along with some very special guests.
This year we will return to the delightful Garden Rooms at Tennants, in Leyburn, on Monday, 2nd December, 11am to 2.30pm.
What the awards have meant to some of our previous winners
We are being approached for more diverse work and collaborations than before which is how we’d like our business to grow
Winning the Specialist Retailer of the Year at The Flavours of Herriot Country award was in our view the turning point for our business.
All I can say to anyone deciding to enter or not is, just do it, you never know, you might be a first time winner like us!!
