They’ll be the judge of that: eviivo announces judging panel for 2019 eviivo Awards

Ahead of the eviivo Awards taking place at a glitzy ceremony in London on 15th October, the hotel booking software company has today announced its star-studded line-up of judges to critique properties from the independent hospitality sector, ahead of crowning the winners of eight categories on the night.

Taking their seat at the judging table is celebrity chef and TV personality Rosemary Shrager, who will judge the Tastiest Breakfast category, as well as a host of esteemed writers, chefs and professionals with a wealth of expertise and knowledge of the travel and tourism industry.

Shrager, who has worked at internationally renowned restaurants and used to run her own cookery school, will conduct a taste test of some of the country’s best breakfasts from the shortlisted properties. She’ll be joined by 2018 Tastiest Breakfast winner Janette Likeman, and AA inspector Robert Martin. The 2019 winner will be announced at the ceremony.

Rosemary Shrager commented:

“Breakfast is definitely the most important meal of the day, so it’s wonderful to see such a great range of fresh, authentic and locally-sourced delicacies in eviivo’s Tastiest Breakfast category this year. With so much pride and passion put in to make these dishes, I really can’t wait to sample some of them and see the rightful winner crowned at this year’s eviivo Awards ceremony.”
