Time is running out for people to nominate their favourite food and drink heroes.

The deadline for entries to the Aylsham Show’s Norfolk Hero Food and Drink Awards is this Sunday June 1.

There are categories for: best specialist food or drink producer; best use of Norfolk produce on the menu; best food or drink supplier; best new food or drink venue, and individual hero.

Committee chairman Jacinth Rogers said entrants “contribute to what makes Norfolk different -a county for great food, drinks and countryside.

She added: “Our previous winners have seen more custom since they were awarded.

“I heard that when a local tearoom received its nomination the owner jumped up and down of joy!”

Nominations can be made online or look for leaflets in cafés, pubs and shops across Norfolk. Winners will be announced at the Aylsham Show on Monday August 25.

  • Surely calling food producers Heroes is a bit over the top regardless of how good they might be, just devalues the word like calling an overpaid footballer a hero for scoring a goal
