Voting is now open for the annual Observer Food Monthly (OFM) Awards, introduced by Nigel Slater.
“This year marks the tenth anniversary of the OFM Awards, in which you get the chance to vote for the unsung heroes of the food world, the local retailers and restaurants who deserve to be recognised. This is a difficult time for the food business and if we can help give a louder voice to those who are putting everything into making great food, then the whole thing will be worthwhile.”
The OFM awards celebrate a passion for quality, creativity and innovation. There are eleven categories, from food photography to young chefs, with new ones added this year, including the best independent local farmer in the UK which is designed to celebrate excellence in small-scale food production, whether meat, dairy or arable.

There is even a category for Best Food Blog (hint, hint)……..
