The awards ceremony first came to Chesterfield in 2012.
Chesterfield's annual food and drink awards returned to the town for the seventh year in a row last night.
The event took place at the Winding Wheel theatre.
Dom Stevens is the Manager of Destination Chesterfield, who hosted the event.
He feels the strength of the sector has been influential in the recent boost to the town's visitor economy;
"It's a really, really exciting time here in Chesterfield. Food and drink's an important part of tourism.
"People visit places, they go out for food, but they want a distinctive experience, and we've got some really great businesses here in North Derbyshire, which supports that industry."
Chris Mapp, who owns the Tickled Trout in Barlow, was awarded the prestigious 'Food Hero' prize.
He spoke to Peak FM about his passion for the industry;
"I help youngsters and disadvantaged people get into hospitality.
"I've also helped by being a chef mentor in local schools and by doing demonstrations to local youngsters to help them get into cooking."
