It’s our eighth year bigging up all the hard-working people pouring their passion into the food we love to dine out on with the Foodie Forks! Our awards are designed to celebrate the achievements of restaurants and individuals within the F&B industry – whether it’s for their cooking, ethos or the vibe they’ve created, they put their backs into making something we can all appreciate. We love to showcase those who labour over what they love, making all that pure edible magic, and our annual awards give us the opportunity to do just that.

Make your vote count and let us know who and where impressed your palate this year, and we will put them up on a pedestal to take a bow and get a much-deserved bit of recognition for all their efforts.
