A porn-worthy experience

Here at Refresh, we’re huge food and drink lovers so it goes without saying that we’ll be knocking on the doors of the Northern Restaurant and Bar Show tomorrow to see what’s on offer. And it’s even more exciting for us this year, as we’re one of the sponsors of The Food Porn Awards™, along with the lovely lot at Hobs and White Noise.


Food Porn Awards I hear you say?! Yes, that’s right. So what does this entail?


Well, last year, our talented client STM Photography created The Food Porn Awards™ - with our expert PR help, of course. A search was launched to find THE best food from restaurants, pubs, bars and eateries across our region; and let’s face it, us Northerners know how to eat.


In a nutshell, chefs were encouraged to enter images of their most mouth-watering dishes in a quest to be hailed with a coveted award for the most porn-worthy food. A cook-off entailed with 16 super-talented finalists presenting their dishes and having them expertly shot by STM Photography. The finished dishes were presented to an esteemed judging panel made up of food development chef Robert Gong, MMU Professor John Swarbrooke, home economist and food stylist Jo Brewer, food journalist Emily Heward, publisher of Bitten Helen Ramsbottom, Shoot the Moon creative director Oliver Zebedee-Howard. And now the time is here for the winner to be revealed at the Northern Restaurant and Bar Show on 15th March at 3.30pm in the Hub.


The NRB is the biggest hospitality exhibition in the north of England and will see over 270 exhibitors and 1000s of visitors over the two days. Jam packed to say the least. We’ll be on hand at STM Photography’s stand (C11) where canvases of the dishes from the Food Porn Awards will be on show, so don’t forget to come and say hi.


I encourage anyone who is around to come along to witness the beautifully placed food from fresh out of the sea lobsters and juicy ribs to rich, gooey chocolate cake and exquisite photography of these dishes. You’ll leave hungry for sure!


Hopefully see you there… and don’t forget to tweet us (@RefreshPR) - perhaps we could even meet for coffee and cake :o)
