The presenter of the popular Saturday Kitchen on BBC1 and Best Bites on BBC 2, Matt Tebbutt, has been confirmed as this year’s host for the annual FMT Food Industry Awards ceremony.
The Awards presentations and ceremony has been upgraded to a black-tie evening dinner this year and takes place at a new venue, the 5-star Royal Lancaster Hotel, London, on Wednesday 25th May.
Matt also presents Food Unwrapped, which is in its eighth series, on Channel 4. He has presented a range of other popular TV shows.
He owned and ran The Foxhunter restaurant in Nantyderry near Usk in South Wales for over 10 years. The restaurant won a number of awards including the AA Restaurant of the Year for Wales. Before this he also worked at some of London’s most prestigious restaurants.
Managing Editor & Publisher of Food Management Today magazine, Graham Yandell, commented: “Matt follows other top chefs who have endorsed our food awards over the years such as Michele Roux Jr. and John Torode, and I am certain he will be a big hit with our guests. We are absolutely delighted he is participating and hosting this popular event. The message from me is book your tables and tickets now, particularly as there is an early bird discount available.”
Yandell continued: “The food awards ceremony and dinner is one of the highlights of the annual industry calendar and remain unique in the scope and coverage that they provide. Our new venue will be a spectacular backdrop for a fantastic occasion.”
