This week was the awards of the year, and no we aren’t talking about the Olympics, Oscars or anything like that. We are talking about an award that we all care about, The BTA’s. Yes, the British Takeaway Awards. This year’s awards were a massive success for one Yorkshire takeaway, which went home with two huge awards.
The British Takeaway Awards (BTAs) ran for the sixth year running and we wish a massive well done and a HUGE congratulations to Sheffield’s Sakushi Japenese, who was awarded, both Best Takeaway In Yorkshire and Best Takeaway In Britain.
Us Yorkshire folk certainly like a takeaway for tea and the local Yorkshire takeaway sure proved popular. Judges were impressed with its vegan and vegetarian menu and community initiatives. They serve up some delicious Japanese dishes that will have you salivating.
Presented by Max & Paddy’s Paddy McGuiness the ceremony was judged by TV chef Nisha Katona and Asma Khan from Netflix’s Chef’s Table. There was also a whole host of celebrity guests including Daisy Lowe, Pixie Lott, Oliver Cheshire, Lucy Mecklenburgh, Chris Kamara and John Barnes.
Andrew Kenny, Managing Director of Just Eat, said: “Takeaway food is a massive part of our British culture and this year more than ever we wanted to recognise the local takeaways that kept the nation fed, while also making an immeasurable contribution to their local communities and the UK economy.
“From delivering a taste of normality when communities needed it most to providing healthier options we want to congratulate all of the deserving winners for continuing to bring the nation the food they love.”
Sakushi in Sheffield took home a huge £1,000 cash price plus £200 to spend and Just Eat shops as well as a further £5,000 for the Best Takeaway In Britain.
