READ ALL ABOUT THE AWARDS HERE
Local restaurateur Rebecca Mascarenhas is behind some of London’s best neighbourhood restaurants, including Home SW15, her casual all-day restaurant in Putney; Flour + Water, and three she co-owns with her long-standing business partner and acclaimed chef Phil Howard: Elystan Street in Chelsea, Kitchen W8 in Kensington, and Church Road in Barnes.
She feels it’s vital people support their local restaurants and venues. “Use it or lose it,” she says. “These people have put everything in to their businesses and are achieving great things so they deserve our support.” Read our interview with her here.
Our awards have always been supported by top names in the industry, who recognise their importance, including Marcus Wareing, Adam Byatt and the late Antonio Carluccio.
Adam says: “I have always been a great supporter of the Time & Leisure Food and Culture awards which recognise the brilliant and ever-growing dining culture in South West London. I am delighted to once again be a part of this annual celebration”
Our awards celebrate the talented, creative and passionate people who make up our thriving hospitality and arts industries across south west London and Surrey.
The #FoodAndCulture Awards champion the efforts of those who make our high streets, neighbourhoods and communities so vibrant, from owner-run restaurants and local cafes to theatres and community-led festivals.
By voting, you give a little high five to your secret gem, the neighbourhood favourite and those destinations worth a journey, including restaurants, cafes, food and drink producers, theatres and arts venues, festivals and more.
Support your favourite restaurants, cafes and cultural experiences with a vote, from a local bar you love or a go-to restaurant you’d recommend to a performing arts venue or cherished community project. Your favourite may just pick up one of the most prestigious and credible awards in the region. To say thank you, every time you vote, we will enter you into our prize draw to win one of our fabulous prizes, with more being added during the voting period.
