The new award will be judged by Slow Food UK, Highland Park, food critic Matthew Fort and BigHospitality’s sister publication Restaurant magazine. It will go to the business within the World’s 50 Best Restaurants that creates ‘pleasurable food with an outstanding commitment to community and the environment.’
“We are delighted to be collaborating with Highland Park and Slow Food UK on this new initiative,” said William Drew, editor of Restaurant magazine. “Now feels like the perfect time to highlight and reward those restaurants within the World's 50 Best list that best reflect notions of locality, heritage, sustainability and the revival of forgotten foods.
“One deserving restaurant will emerge with the coveted new title of Highland Park Slow Food Restaurant of the Year on April 30.”
