Here are the food and drinks stars will be served at the BAFTAs 2019

The EE British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs ) will be held at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall on 10 February 2019.

After a very well-received debut last year, Joanna Lumley is returning to compere the awards this February. Lumley, made waves in the world of wine co-hosting fizz documentary Absolutely Champers in December 2017, and she’ll be pleased to know the fizz will be in free flow again this year.

While the awards are hotly contested, the only thing we’re really interested in is the food and drink.

This year, the menu has been curated by BAFTA’s own head chef Anton Manganaro in collaboration with Paul Bates, the executive head chef of Mayfair’s Grosvenor House Hotel. Last year, the kitchen team introduced a vegan option for guests for the first time, and this year the vegetarian option is once again entirely plant-based.

BAFTA held its own pre-party for media foodies on Monday 28 January, offering a rare insight into the partnerships with Academy nurtures with food and drinks labels around the world.
