Guild of Food Writers 25th Anniversary Awards 2022 Winners Announced

Congratulations to Guild members Anthony Gladman and Jonny Garrett on their wins!

It is with great pleasure that we bring you details of the winners of our 25th Anniversary Guild of Food Writers Awards presentation, which took place in London last night at the Royal Institution. You will find full details of the winners and sponsors below.

In addition, The Guild of Food Writers awarded the 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award to Delia Smith CH CBE, which was presented by Jamie Oliver.

Furthermore, the evening began with announcement of the winners of The Guild of Food Writers Young Food Writer Competition, with a special message from Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cornwall.

It was a truly memorable occasion, honouring excellence in our industry. It was also a joyous celebration of outstanding work and a wonderful opportunity to connect again in person after too long.

We offer our warmest congratulations to all winning and shortlisted authors. Our sincere thanks go to our members who judged the awards, to our sponsors for their generous support, and to our outstanding volunteer committee who worked tirelessly to arrange this glorious evening.

With best wishes,
Charlotte Pike
