It’s the highlight of the food year here in Localtown – the Annual Food Star of the Year Dinner. The event will culminate, as always, with the award of the Silver Slice to the person who has contributed the most to Localtown’s food and drink scene over the last 12 months.
Recently it’s always gone to Vernon Ictim, the Localtown Gazette’s top critic, but with such success comes bad feeling – and he hasn’t helped things, having made enemies of his contemporaries.
As all the nominees gather for the dinner, resentments have reached boiling point…and before the award can be presented formally, it has been plunged into Vernom Ictim’s back!
Vernom Ictim is no more.
