Torbay’s Sam Ward on South West shortlist of BBC’s Food & Farming Awards
Sam Ward, the chef at Collaton St Mary Primary School, Torbay, has made it to the South West shortlist in the BBC’s 2015 Food & Farming Awards.
Sam works to develop school food culture to be the best it can be, running a cookery club and a number of well-attended community lunches.
She also plays an integral role in writing the cookery curriculum, including organising farm visits for the children.
The BBC Food and Farming Awards is in its 15th anniversary year.
Each year the BBC Food & Farming Awards celebrate the people and organisations behind the best of British food.
The finalists start off as a nomination sent in by a member of the public and then a team of judges, including some of the UK’s best known chefs and food writers, select finalists in each of the ten categories which include Best Food Market, Best Drinks Producer, Best Food Producer, and Best Street Food/Takeaway.
The BBC Food & Farming awards ceremony in Bristol will launch Bristol Food Connections – a festival hosting a broad programme of accessible and affordable events from 1 to 9 May across Bristol. The BBC will be holding a number of talks, debates and broadcast throughout the festival from locations around the city.
Winners will be announced at a ceremony held in Bristol on Thursday 30 April 2015.
