The finalists – announced here – will learn their fate at a celebratory dinner on April 24 at Wherstead Park, the headquarters of the East of England Co-op, a great champion of local food and drink, who we’re delighted to have as our main sponsor. The evening will be hosted by BBC Radio Suffolk presenter Lesley Dolphin. Winners or not, these are the cream of the crop in what is another record year for nominations for the awards. We wish them luck and look forward to seeing them all at the celebration.

Note: finalists are in alphabetical order. The Food Hero is judged from all nominations.
