Food and Drink finalists announced

The nominations are in and the finalists in the 2017 Chesterfield Food and Drink Awards have been announced.

Organised by Destination Chesterfield, and sponsored by Chesterfield College, the prestigious awards recognise the very best food, drinks, service and venues in the town’s growing hospitality sector.

A total of 26 businesses have been shortlisted across 10 categories, with Casa Hotel, Junction Bar, Bottle & Thyme and The Lilypad Café being nominated across multiple categories. Cocina at Casa Hotel has once again been nominated for the coveted Restaurant of the Year 2017 title and hopes to retain it for a third year running.

This year more nominations than ever were received from the public for the Food and Drink Awards. Dominic Stevens, Destination Chesterfield Manager said:-

“The awards are now in their fifth year and more popular than ever. Each year it gets more and more difficult to narrow the nominations down to just three finalists in each category. It’s great to see so many first-time finalists, reflecting the growth and diversity of Chesterfield’s food and drink scene.”

The winners will be announced a glittering awards ceremony, hosted by celebrity cake maker to the A List Mich Turner, which is being held at Chesterfield College’s Heart Space building in October later this year.
