Prima doners: The results of the British Kebab Awards 2015 are in
Kebabs aren’t just for 3am on a Saturday as you wind your way home from The Red Lion.
Now worth an annual £2.2 billion to the British economy, kebabs are no longer just a drunken late night snack. They want to be taken seriously.
Last night’s British Kebab Awards were the third of their kind. They were established in 2013, in a bid to ‘highlight and acknowledge the best of the kebab industry from all over Britain.’
A panel of 19, including Labour MP Keith Vaz, the Tories’ Nadhim Zahawi and restaurateur James Breslaw, reviewed more than 2000 nominees across 14 categories.
And here’s the results – for all you crazy rotisserie junkies out there.
