Observer Food Monthly Awards were on fire

Was this the best ever Observer Food Monthly Awards event?

Those lucky enough to go and to eat the Ekstedt’s food and drink 69 Colebrooke Row’s cocktails might agree with me that it was. Naturally, I’m biased but Niklas Ekstedt’s fire pit menu was utterly delicious. Cooked outside in pans on burning wood, the menu read like this:

For those that went to the awards but didn’t manage to find their way outside to the courtyard, there was even more Ekstedt food circulating. Inside he was serving :

Hay-baked turbot on Swedish crispbread
