For Cannonball 2017 we’re working with the UK Restaurant industry and the public to select who we ‘re going to visit. We’re looking for restaurants that are either well established as a regional or national leader in their cooking style, or an emerging chef who is set for stardom.  Each year we celebrate established quality but we’ve also uncovered some amazing talent who we’ve revisited to produce stunning showreels like this… Could this be you in 2017?
