Tom Athron, CEO of Fortnum & Mason comments: “In 2022 we celebrate ten years of discovering and championing the achievements of the UK’s writers, editors, publishers, photographers and broadcasters who encourage us to enjoy, explore, experiment and discover more about food and drink through their work.

For over three centuries Fortnum & Mason has remained an essential destination for extraordinary food and exceptional service, so it’s no surprise that we want to shine a spotlight on the current and emerging talent who bring the joy we find in food and drink to life.

I’d like to thank our expert judges along with our Panel Chair, Angela Hartnett, for their time and expertise, and my best wishes go to everyone who enters.”
