The 2018 Foodism 100 awards night – in pictures
On 25 January, the first ever Foodism 100 awards – in association with Southern Comfort – took place at Borough Market's Market Hall. Here's a look at what went on
On one chilly evening in January, hundreds of the capital's food-lovers and business owners gathered in the market hall of Borough Market to raise a glass to all their friends, colleagues and favourite venues striving to effect positive change in London's food and drink scene.
The event marked the culmination of a months-long campaign to highlight the people driving the sustainable and ethical movement in London's food scene. But while every one of the Foodism 100 was a winner in our book, it wouldn't have been right not to take advantage of the opportunity to get everyone together and crown some category winners. Among them were Ryan Chetiyawardana, aka Mr Lyan, for his bar Super Lyan; Conflict Café for their efforts in fundraising to support peace efforts in the Middle East; The Frog E1 for cutting out waste at every stage of the prepping and cooking process, and plenty more.
In case you missed it – or even if you just want to take a moment to look back at the first ever Foodism 100 awards – we've put together a some photos.
The category winners
Food was provided by the Michelin-starred Simon Hulstone, cooking with Seafood from Norway's Skrei cod and fjord trout, while Baz & Fred were putting out epic meaty and veggie sourdough pizzas. Elsewhere, Ethiopian Flavours were cooking up rich curries, and Comptoir Gourmand took care of dessert. Check them out here.
We drank cocktails from a bar serving up specially designed concoctions from headline sponsor Southern Comfort, as well as category sponsors Silent Pool Gin's G&Ts and Karma Cola's soft drinks, plus wines from historic wine merchant and Best Pop-Up or Residency category sponsors Berry Bros. & Rudd. Check out the photos below.
We'll see you next year for round two.
