The Observer Food Monthly Awards had a much-anticipated return after three years away to champion the best in food and drink across the UK, as voted for by Observer readers and a panel of judges
Observer Food Monthly editor Allan Jenkins introduced the evening’s event, co-hosted by Observer and Guardian restaurant critics Jay Rayner and Grace Dent. Winners included Delia Smith, Mumtaz Khan MBE and the #CookForUkraine campaign.
Brands also got involved in the awards’ return, with Birrificio Angelo Poretti, Charlie Bigham and Magimix joining M&S Food in supporting categories
Allan Jenkins, Observer Food Monthly editor, said: “We are thrilled the Observer Food Monthly Awards are back. Our readers have again shown great taste in food and drink across the UK. It’s so good to see the huge variety – whether vegan, gluten-free, good pizza or Sunday roast, there’s something for everyone.
“I’m especially proud we have been able to honour projects such as London’s Community Kitchen and #CookforUkraine for their brilliant work supporting people in need at home and abroad. Highlighting heroes is what our OFM Awards are for.”
