The food Reader Awards 2014 winners

Food Reader Awards, 2014The food Reader Awards, now in their third year, celebrate the best food and drink in the South West and were voted for strictly by readers of foodmagazine and http://www.food-mag.co.uk in three rounds of voting which began last autumn. The most voted for categories were Best Restaurant, Local Cookery School and Local Food Hero.

“The glitterati of the South West food and drink world were out in force for a fabulous awards evening of good food, great cheer and a lot of laughs. It was a killer finalist list and the winners were ‘stoked’ to use the quote of the night.”

Do we have our favorite here at Your Home with Karie Engels?  Yes we do, and we were excited to see CountryWoodSmoke.com on the list below.
