About The People’s Choice Food Awards, The Golden Foodie Awards

Orange County is an incredible culinary landscape that grows richer each year. It is vastly diverse and immersed with talent that has for far too long been overlooked. 

Food and Drinks are one of the good things in life! We celebrate that with an incredible event dedicated to the people behind the food and drink.

We believe that food has power and can connect us all. Sharing a drink or breaking bread with friends and family is one of the joyful parts of life.  Restaurant industry professionals are some of the most passionate and caring people in the world. They work intense hours sometimes seven days a week, they deserve an evening that is all about them.

One night a year we roll out the red carpet and have a grand celebration. Not everyone wins but is united in support of their community while raising national awareness of what Orange County is doing.  Orange County has a fiercely strong culinary community and many of them are at the Golden Foodie Awards, whether presenting an award, receiving an award or there in support . . . it is an incredible evening.
