“All of tonight’s Awards are warranted recognition for the exceptional service and culinary excellence displayed by a number of individuals and businesses across South Australia,” she said.
“For many of the Awards, this has been over a period of 12 months, however, for our Hall of Fame and Lifetime Achiever Awards, this has been over the course of many years and decades.
