The sun was shining on us for the eveningof the Somerset Life Food and Drink awards Dinner. Sally Challoner, presenter of BBC Points West, compered the prize-giving ceremony, which was held in the Members' Marquee at the Royal Bath & West show on 31 May.

This was the fourth year of the Awards and more than 130 guests and sponsors attended the prize-giving ceremony and Awards Dinner. Guest speaker was Richard Ash of the Royal Bath & West of England Society, and Simon Gregory, from the principal sponsor Foot Anstey, presented the first award of the evening.

Since its inception in 2004, the Somerset Life Food and Drink Awards have gone from strength to strength and this year a record number of nominations were received. As always, it was a great occasion for the people of Somerset to recognise and celebrate the county's best.

Somerset Life would again like to take this opportunity to thank all of our readers for voting and all our sponsors for supporting and making it possible to host such a fantastic event. Finally we would like to congratulate all of our finalists and winners.
