Alternative Food Awards

Simon Majumdar | Dec 7, 2000 11:03 AM

At this time in London we seem to be swamped with awards for Pub of the Year, Restaurant of the Year, Wine Bar of the Year, etc, etc.

I am working with one of the national English papers to come up with alternative awards for their end of year edition.

I would really welcome suggestions for categories and anecdotes. So far the categories I have are

" There's A Rat In The Kitchen" Award for poor hygene in food service.

The " My Brother Cletus is the smart one" Award for poor service

The "ask for Ketchup again and I will remove your heart with my bare hands and show it to you while it is still beating " award for Diva Chefs

The " If I want steak well done I'll damn well have it well done and to Hell with Bourdain" award for dumbest punter

The " Carbon Dating as means of identification" award for worst prepared meal

The " A table of Five you say?, For Friday night you say? at eight o Clock you say? I don't think so" award for most obstructive reservation service

The " This soup tastes a little odd" award for kitchen revenge stories.

The " I wanted dinner, not to buy the place" award for the most exhorbitant bill.

These do not have to be London based so any and all suggestions/stories welcome

Thanks in advance
