The panel of judges consisted of me, Barbora Stiess from The Devilled Egg Kitchen Academy, wine and food expert Angela Mount, Daily Telegraph food editor Xanthe Clay, Good Food channel presenter Thane Prince, and Richard Truscott of Almondsbury Garden Centre.
Public voting led to the three highest scoring producers being shortlisted in each of 11 categories. We sampled produce from each of these three in each category before deciding on our winners. The winner in each category will be presented with their award at a black tie dinner on July 3rd.
