2015 Observer Food Monthly Awards

 

 

Now in its twelfth year, the Observer Food Monthly Awards, known for its enormously heavy goodie bags, took place last night at the Freemasons’ Hall, with Jay Rayner and Claudia Winkleman hosting the proceedings.

 

The Palomar was voted Best Restaurant and Max’s Sandwich Shop in Crouch Hill took home the Best Cheap Eats award. The Camberwell Arms picked up Best Sunday Lunch and The Clink, located in Brixton and which offers prisoners the chance to gain practical skills whilst engaging with the wider public, won Best Ethical Restaurant. 

 

Harry’s Shack in Portsewart, Northern Ireland was voted as Best Newcomer, whilst Veggies Galore in Ross-on-Wye won Best Producer.

 

Great British Bakeoff star Mary Berry won lifetime achievement award for her contribution to the culinary arts (spanning over fifty years). Elsewhere, Michelin starred Tom Kerridge won Best Food Personality and George O’Leary, the up and coming chef at two Michelin starred Hand and Flowers, was awarded young chef of the year.
