Foodism is London's largest food and drink title, and the Foodism 100, in association with Kenwood Travel, is all about celebrating venues and businesses effecting positive change across the capital's vibrant food and drink industry.
On Thursday 24 January, we welcomed nominees, readers, collaborators some very special industry guests to crown our ten category winners for 2019, as well as enjoy some utterly delicious food and drink.
The night – and the second Foodism 100 initiative as a whole – was a massive success, with queues around the block for entry on the night in addition to confirmed attendees, food traders serving up delicious dishes and the Foodism 100 photobooth busy all night. Check out a taste of the awards night below.
We saw an unprecedented attendance of more than 600 people at the awards night, which featured a (mercifully short) awards ceremony and loads of food, drink and good times. Here's a look at some of the highlights.
The awards ceremony
The ceremony, hosted by Foodism editor Mike Gibson, saw our ten winners claim their prizes, voted for by 45 judges, and also included a presentation from guest speaker Tom Hunt, as well as a word from Jean-Marc Flambert of our headline sponsor Kenwood Travel.
The food and drink
The night included food from sustainable producers and traders, too: pizza was served from The Good Slice, meaty and veggie paella from Crocus Paella, Southern-style wings from Chuckling Wings and banging vegan burgers from The Green Grill, while for dessert, attendees went nuts over Bad Brownie's special collab with Pics Peanut Butter.
There was also a cocktail bar curated by our category sponsors St-Germain, Oxley Gin and Santa Teresa rum, as well as beer from Brooklyn Brewery, wines from Beefsteak Club and soft drinks from category sponsor Karma Cola.
