Congratulations to all the winners of the Second Annual Garden State Culinary Arts Awards! South Jersey really cleaned up this year with many award winners from Collingswood and Princeton.  Keep reading to see all the 2018 winners.

We attended the awards ceremony on Sunday evening at the gorgeous Bell Works building in Holmdel.  It was a lovely evening with a food, wine and beer reception after the ceremony.  There was some great food (as you’d expect) which was presented by culinary students.
