THE MENU FOOD & DRINK AWARDS 2019 

We’re back…. and this year we are celebrating our second year. The Courier’s the menu food & drink awards will celebrate and recognise the best producers and purveyors of quality food and drink, with emphasis on originality, entrepreneurial flair and innovation across the Dundee, Perthshire, Fife and Angus area.

This year we have some new categories, Best Craft Beer, Best Craft Distiller, Cocktail Bar of the Year and Best Newcomer.

Hosted at a prestigious Old Course Hotel, St Andrews on the 28th March 2019, the awards ceremony will not only celebrate the winners but will also showcase five courses from five top chefs in the area. Each course will be a celebration of the individual chef, and very much served in style, with complementing wine.

There are 11 categories, plus the coveted Judges Choice Food and Drink Brand Ambassador.

For more information please contact Kim McMurray kmcmurray@dctmedia.co.uk or call 01382 575369.
