The YBFs Young British Foodies Award

YBFs Awards 2012

In a studio off Regent Park tonight we were among stars and talented people of mixology, mobile mover and shakers, food experience artists, alchemist of the oven, meat/charcuterie personalities, most irreverent young chefs, honorary YBFs and of course coffee Kings or Queens!

Eight months ago we never had a single thought we would be finalists in an award, nominated alongside Maxwell the latest UKBC about to go to Vienna competing for the WBC for the UK nor with Lawrence of Dark Fluid Coffee who has such passion and knowledge and many others who worked in the industry for so long.

We felt like dust among the stars and being judged by Gwilym Davies, Tim Styles and Marco Arrigo was a real life time experience.

Talking to Maxwell, his wife and Lawrence on how much love, passion, engaging ideas and time they’ve put in is very impressive. We still got a long way to go!

We didn’t win,naturally, but it has encouraged us to keep going, doing it better, explore ideas and try new things with critical but open minds.
