Susie Warran Smith

Susie has regularly appeared on TV and has worked with James Martin, Mary Berry, Keith Floyd and Raymond Blanc. She has recorded over 400 episodes of the FoodTalk Show with her last interviewee being Marcus Wareing. Along with Simon Rimmer, she is the co-author of the Fine Food Lover’s Guide.

As Chair of Produced in Kent, I am keen to promote and support food and drink businesses across the county. Winning a Taste of Kent award is a great way of gaining profile for your business and be recognised for the quality of your products. As a judge I am looking for innovation, determination, energy and a stand-out brand as well as an end product that tastes amazing.
