Celebrity chef Theo Randall has been confirmed as the host of Chesterfield’s 2015 Food and Drink Awards ceremony.

He will announce the winners of the very best producers, restaurants, cafes, bars and venues Chesterfield has to offer.

Nominations for the prestigious awards opened last week, with the ceremony taking place in October.

The awards are organised by Destination Chesterfield in association with headline sponsor Chesterfield College, which is hosting the event at its Heart Space Building.

Award-winning restaurateur Theo is a familiar face on prime-time TV, and recently published his second cookery book, My Simple Italian.

Said Theo: “I am passionate about good quality food and drink and these awards embody the very best that the town has to offer as well as celebrating the next generation of employees in the hospitality industry.” 

This year there are 13 categories in the awards including the new Conference Venue of the Year.

Other categories in the Chesterfield Food and Drink Awards can be viewed at www.chesterfield.co.uk/foodanddrinkawards. Voting is open until midnight on July 12.

Sponsorship details are available from Dominic Stevens on 01246 207207 or by emailing dom.stevens@chesterfield.co.uk.
