TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall to attend BBC Radio Food & Farming Awards 2009

This year the BBC Radio Food & Farming Awards celebrate their 10th anniversary and BBC Radio 4 is pleased to announce the ceremony will be attended by Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.

They will be joined by a star-studded line-up of food and farming celebrities including Raymond Blanc, Mark Hix, Alex James and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

The BBC Radio Food & Farming Awards, presented by Sheila Dillon of Radio 4's The Food Programme, celebrate the people and organisations behind the best of British food.

This year's event will be hosted by BBC Director-General Mark Thompson and will take place at the Radio Theatre, BBC Broadcasting House in London later this month.

After sifting through thousands of nominations, the team of judges – chaired by chef and restaurateur Raymond Blanc and including cheese-maker and Blur bassist Alex James and school dinners champion Jeanette Orrey, among others – have spent the last few weeks travelling around the UK visiting this year's finalists, watching them at work and tasting their food.

A special programme of the awards will be broadcast on Friday 27 November, at 9.00am on Radio 4, revealing the winners in the nine different categories.

Find out who is producing the nation's best takeaway, which pupils are being served the best school meals and who has won the much coveted title of BBC Food Personality Of The Year.

This year also marks the 30th anniversary of Radio 4's The Food Programme, which will profile some of this year's winners in an edition to be broadcast on Sunday 29 and Monday 30 November.

Full details of this year's finalists and the judges were published in a press release on 12 October.
