The judging panel said: “The winner does exactly what you want it to, in a very stylish way, with the use of beautiful photography that draws the reader in. The content inspires you – with a focus on local chefs and produce this is supplement you will wish to keep!”
Menu editor Caroline Lindsay said: “Winning this award means so much to the team, especially as Menu is still a young supplement – we’re only in our second year of producing it.
“A big thanks to our chefs, columnists, bloggers – and, of course, our readers.
The award has made us even more determined to bring the best of Courier Country’s food and drink to our readers.”
