CHEF Tim Bilton was picking up a well-deserved award just 12 months ago.
Now the man named Young Business Person of the Year in the 2010 Examiner Business Awards is helping choose the winners in a regional competition.
Tim (pictured), who runs The Butcher’s Arms at Hepworth, is among the judges in the prestigious deliciouslyorkshire awards, which will be announced on November 14 at Rudding Park in Harrogate.
Tim, who has appeared on TV shows such as BBC’s Great British Menu, is putting his expertise to the test to select the best food businesses from across the region.
The seventh annual deliciouslyorkshire awards celebrates the elite of the region’s food and drink industry. Tim, who was also named Yorkshire Chef of the Year in 2009, joins a panel of 20 independent judges selecting the winners of 20 categories based on taste, texture, aroma and appearance.
Cath Clelland, of deliciouslyorkshire, said: “We have a fantastic line-up of a high profile judges this year.
“The awards are a quality mark for first-class food and this is reflected in the exceptional expertise of our judges.”
