It will also showcase food suppliers, servers and manufacturers that take our taste buds around the world while in the comfort of Scotland.

The awards promise to be a memorable event in the food industry’s calendar, with a wide range of accolades ready to be presented to the most deserving professionals and establishments, including Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, Cooking School of the Year, Best of Glasgow and many more.
