The Young British Foodies Awards

With seven interesting categories for the hopefuls to choose from and get their teeth into, from mixology, to baking, streetfood and 'most irreverent young chef', the distinguished judges will be championing avant-garde creations as well as the art of perfecting traditional skills. The awards are open for entries until 30th April 2012 and the competition will culminate in an awards night on 29th May.
