Eat Out has a brand new sponsor on board for its first year back after the awards took a two year hiatus.
It’s a brand-new era for the Eat Out Restaurant Awards, with Eat Out welcoming premium food retailer Woolworths as its headline partner for 2022.
Eat Out brand custodian Aileen Lamb says: “Woolies sponsored the Eat Out Sustainability Award for many years, and we’re ecstatic to welcome them as the title sponsor for the full ceremony in 2022. It’s now officially the Eat Out Woolworths Restaurant Awards!
“Our chefs, front-of-house and kitchen teams have had to dig deep as our industry took one blow after another over the past two years. The strength, resilience and sense of community they have shown has inspired us at Eat Out, and they deserve our wholehearted support and praise as they continue to inspire us with their craft. With Woolworths as our headline partner, we are ready to give our inspirational restaurant community the celebration of a lifetime this year.”
Returning after a two-year hiatus, and with Abigail Donnelly back at the helm as chief judge, the 2022 Eat Out Woolworths Restaurant Awards will also feature five of the country’s most respected industry experts as judges. Joining Abigail in giving a rating – rather than a ranking – to each of the country’s best restaurants are Michelin-starred chef and restaurateur Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen, chef Karen Dudley, sommelier Moses Magwaza, food activist and cookbook author Mokgadi Itsweng, and food writer and broadcaster Anna Trapido.
