Pubs encouraged to submit their best breakfasts

Entries are now open for the National Breakfast and Brunch Awards, as the event returns to London for its third annual outing on 29 January 2020.

For the 2020 competition, the event has been extended to incorporate the buoyant brunch category for the first time, inviting chefs from across the out of home, pub and bar, casual dining and hotel sectors to compete in a series of breakfast and brunch challenges.

The 16 finalists will be tasked with creating their speciality breakfast or brunch for judges using their own ingredients. Chefs will also get to battle it out in the Technical Round using products supplied on the day.

Bartenders can also get involved in the competition, as alongside the main event once again will be the Bloody Mary Challenge in association with TABASCO®. For the second year running, the maker of the best Bloody Mary will win a trip to Avery Island, Louisiana.

“The Awards have been a great success, but we can’t wait for the new extended event and all of the exciting operators and dishes that can now step up to the plate,” says Henry Norman, editor of organisers OOH magazine. “Brunch is booming and we are sure that this addition will make 2020 the best – and tastiest – event yet.”
