Reader Awards (EAT AWARDS). Time to chew the fat about all you find beautiful about local food and drink and let us know what you loved and didn’t like. So sit yourself down. Great to see you and hear your thoughts. Let me muddle you up a drink… EAT has a hankering for something juicy from you, dear reader. We crave the fat off the bone and the grizzle of what has moved, maddened and made you smack your lips in 2011. What deserves a standing ovation and what deserves a big boo and hiss. This is one fine culinary team sport. 2011 – Whaddya think? Is your ‘tried and true’, still your ‘go-to’? Or did you discover a new place? A new dish? A new cooking class? Did something, an event, shop or item really pique your sensibilities for local and lovely gastronomy? So have a think, share your voice, stand up and be counted. It is time to reflect, discuss, share and celebrate!
