We are VERY excited to announce that our #meat category winner from the very first year of YBFs judging is joining our illustrious panel as a meat judge herself this year. Lovely Charlotte Mitchell went on to open up the hugely successful Charlotte's butchery and we are beyond delighted to have her on board. @girlbutcher
Terri blew our 🧦 off on Monday night with these little pots of sunshine The great news is, you can now get a version of them @happyendingsldn just ask for the ‘Wish I was at the beach’ .
Terri won the Baking category last year... think you’ve got what it takes? Enter now on our website (link in bio)
Tomorrow at 5pm #YBFs2018 launches for entries for the seventh year. We have some exciting updates in store and will endeavour to continue the search for the next wave of incredible food and drink talent.
Last year Ross came top of the Vegetable category for the exceptional produce coming from @padstowkitchengarden
In 2016 we added the Front of House category. In 2017 @kieranmonteiro - owner of @bomarestaurants and front of house extraordinaire wowed judges who felt he had hospitality pumping through his veins. Boma has just opened their fourth venue; The Tunnel Bar in Putney. Head down for great food, drink, music and of course... a great experience.
Have you had a particularly good dining experience lately? #YBFNominate from Monday!
As we countdown to the #YBFs2018 launch next Monday, we are taking a look back at the pure talent we saw in 2017...
