Weber MD John Cooper said:

"At Weber we believe that the food you cook is as important as the barbecue you cook it on, and we’re delighted that Hugh, who is an inspiration to home cooks, was the winner on the night.

"The Observer Food Monthly Awards are an important date in the foodie calendar and they are hugely influential. This is our fourth year as sponsors and we are delighted to have been involved again."
