THE fabulous crew at Delicious magazine and News Corp's local newspapers want me to find your local food champions in Matt Preston's Deliciously Local Food Survey.


It's been the toughest year ever for your favourite cafes, restaurants and small food producers and they need our help.

So, if I was coming to your beautiful corner of the world where would you suggest we go for coffee?

Where must I eat brunch or lunch?

What is the one thing I should eat while I'm there?

Fill out the survey below and sing their praises (don't hold back!) and get people dining out again in your neighbourhood.

It could be anything from a fantastic curry from a local restaurant or the best counter meal to the perfect vanilla slice or pie from the local bakery, best local cheese, or those award-winning snags made by your butcher.

Answer these questions and not only will you be helping us to celebrate your local food champions but we'll also put you in the draw to win one of six signed cookbooks*.
