Harris won Cookery Book of the Year for his book The Sportsman, detailing the story of his Michelin-starred pub and how he built its reputation up to what it is today.
Rogers was presented with the Fortnum’s special award in honour of her more than 30 years at Hammersmith institution The River Cafe.
US chef and food writer Samin Nosrat won Debut Food Book of the Year for Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, which addresses the “four basic factors that determine how good your food will taste”.
The Restaurant Writer award went to journalist and broadcaster Jay Rayner for his work as The Observer Magazine’s resident food critic.
The awards, which celebrate the food industry’s best writers, publishers, presenters, image makers and personalities, were hosted by Claudia Winkleman.
Winners were selected by a panel of judges including Noble Rot founder Dan Keeling; food writer Diana Henry; chef José Pizarro; and journalist Marina O’Loughlin. The panel was chaired by Fortnum & Mason CEO Ewan Venters.
The Food Writer award went to Bee Wilson for her Guardian long read article on clean eating. Commenting on Twitter, she said that it was “not least because editor Claire Longrigg had to persuade [her] at first that there was something new to say on the subject”.
