Nominations for the 2019 competition open on the 1st of April.

Over the last few months we’ve been busy working behind the scenes getting ready for the launch of our 22nd Taste of Excellence Awards. Over the last few years we’ve been inundated with nominations for eateries, accommodation providers and businesses across the county, and we can’t wait to see who is making their mark in 2019.

Most of our awards are customer nominated, meaning we get a real snapshot of individual businesses across the county. You’ll find a nomination form inserted in this month’s magazine, however you can also vote online through our website. Voting closes on 31st August, so there is plenty of time to get your nominations in. Forms are also available to download through our website

We’ll also once again be hosting our Chef and Young Chef of the Year categories. Nominations for these categories will also be open from 1st April and you can request the relevant forms and details by contacting our offices on the details below.

Our awards would not be possible without the commitment and help of our sponsors. We would like to thank each of them for helping us to continue with these invaluable county awards which support the county’s diverse food, drink and hospitality offering.

Our categories for 2019 include:
Restaurant of the Year
