Lincolnshire Life are proud to be associated once again with this year’s Select Lincolnshire for Food, Drink & Hospitality Awards 2014.
This celebration of the county’s food and drink industry will be held at The Petwood Hotel on Thursday 6th February where the prestigious Select Lincolnshire for Food, Drink & Hospitality Awards and Lincolnshire Life’s ‘Taste of Excellence’ County Cuisine Awards will be presented to the stars of the food and hospitality industry.

The competition judges are out and about sampling the best three establishments in the three categories of the Lincolnshire Life County Cuisine Awards: House of Townend Best Restaurant; Tastes of Lincolnshire Best Pub Food and Heart of Gold Best Tearoom or Coffee Shop. The finalists will be invited to the glittering awards ceremony which will be held on 6th February at The Petwood Hotel, Woodhall Spa. Lincolnshire Life is delighted to be associated with this event in partnership with Select Lincolnshire who will be presenting their own Food Awards 2014.

Tickets are now on sale for the Awards. Guest speaker will be Phil Bonner, Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire who will be entertaining the audience with his talk on ‘Feeding the Forces in WW1 and WW2.’
The Petwood Hotel will serve a stunning locally sourced fine dining menu to the 200 guests of the Lincolnshire food scene; and Select Lincolnshire are pleased to be working with their head chef to create a showcase of the county’s finest cuisine.

Headline sponsors Lincolnshire Co-operative return with the eagerly anticipated People’s Choice Award for 2014. This year voting opens this month and runs for two weeks. All Select Lincolnshire members are included in the poll – and the public will be urged to vote online for their favourite Select Lincolnshire member! 2013 was a closely fought contest, with some great Twitter campaigning. Joint winners were Redhill Farm Free Range Pork and Mountain’s Boston Sausage who were voted The People’s Choice 2012. Voters should follow hashtag for #LFDA14 for more details.

Tickets are now on sale now for 6th February and prices have been held at the 2013 rates of £50 per person and £450 per table of ten (10% discount). The Awards are open to all those involved in the county’s food industry.
