The awards took place at the Deer Park Country House Hotel, near Honiton, and were hosted by food and drink broadcaster and BBC Radio 2’s Nigel Barden.

He said: “I’m a great fan of Devon and therefore being involved with the Food and Drink Devon Awards for a second year is a delight and an honour. The county is chock full of talented, enthusiastic and passionate food and drink producers, gifted chefs and focused retailers.

“The awards provide the perfect opportunity to acknowledge those who excel at providing the finest of culinary experiences.”
