Nigel Brown will party in the festival kitchen!
27th April 2017
Nantwich Food Festival has seen some flamboyant chefs over the years, but this September visitors to the event’s much-loved food theatre will enjoy a party in the kitchen!
Celebrated chef Nigel Brown will entertain food fans during a packed weekend, with a range of tasty recipes that he hopes will encourage people to start cooking themselves.
The Yorkshire-born chef has spent a lifetime in the hotel and catering industry. He has worked in France, produced DVDs and established the Nigel Brown Cookery Academy.
In 2015, Nigel published his first book – NB. HOW TO COOK – that was soon crowned ‘The Best Cookery School Cookbook’ at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.
He said: “Nantwich is such a diverse festival and it caters for not only the serious foodie but also the whole family.
“I always aim to engage with the crowd in a fun, friendly yet informative fashion.
“I’m looking forward to not only presenting in the live cookery theatre at the festival, but also demonstrating some fabulous recipes from my award-winning cookbook.
“During my demonstrations, I will be sharing some great hints and tips, but most importantly my recipes will be achievable for all the festival’s visitors – something I think is really important.
“They say the best parties are always in the kitchen, so I hope to see you all there!”
Also appearing across the festival weekend will be last summer’s Great British Bake Off winner, Candice Brown, who is sure to set hearts racing.
High-energy children’s TV entertainer Katy Ashworth makes a welcome return and will appeal to visitors of all ages.
The well-established stars will be joined by chefs from Nantwich restaurants keen to showcase the town’s outstanding cuisine, and up-and-coming talent from Cheshire schools and colleges will also take to the hob.
Entry to the Nantwich Food Festival exhibitor marquees and chef demonstrations is free, with a varied programme of events, music and entertainment scheduled each day.
This year’s festival will take place from Friday 1 to Sunday 3 September.
