Celebrations at the Velvet Magazine Food & Drink Awards

Velvet Food & Drink Awards

Thank you so much to the Velvet team for hosting a wonderful afternoon celebrating the winners of the first annual Velvet Food & Drink Awards, in partnership with KUCO.  

Our very own Vhari Russell was privileged to be a part of the judging panel along with other industry experts who looked at nominations from the public in and around the Cambridge/Suffolk area.  This fabulous event was held last month at Newmarket’s historic Jockey Club Rooms with a special champagne and canape reception – a great opportunity to network and chat about all things food and drink!  

Congratulations to all of the winners and runners up – a full list, including judges comments can be found here.
