If there's one thing the Young British Foodie (YBFs) awards know, it's great food. Now in its fourth year, it celebrates the best of new British cooking, baking, food and drinking and also gives just a little bit of a clue of who's going to be totally bossing it on the food scene in the next coming year.


You only need to look at some of the previous winners such as chef Tomos Parry of Kitty Fisher's, the super-hyped Bao restaurant, street food favourite The Rib Man or caffeine curators Sandows, to see just how crystal ball-like the awards have been in predicting the stellar success of certain foodies.


So, naturally, we were very intrigued to see who would be awarded the accolades this year. Mainly so we could eat some of their delights as soon as possible, so we could boast, "Well, of course, I've been eating here since before they went huge."

The awards took place in the incredible setting of Tate Britain on Tuesday 15 September and the nominated people, and some previous winners, cooked up an incredible selection of canapés, cakes and cocktails for the 400-strong audience to enjoy. The breadth, creativity and taste sensations of the offerings were a credit to everyone involved. We mean, just look at some of this food:
