Top chefs and a feast of family fun at Gloucester Quays Food Festival by Shaun Moore | Gloucester News Centre - http://gloucesternewscentre.co.uk/
Three of our most famous TV chefs will be helping to cook up a fabulous feast of fun, food and drink and live entertainment at Gloucester Quays Food Festival from July 22-24.
TV’s popular chef Tom Kerridge, Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain and Reggae Reggae Sauce creator Levi Roots will all be demonstrating their fantastic skills at what promises to be the biggest and most successful food festival yet.
On Friday, July 22, Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain will be demonstrating some of the delicious recipes from her book as well as the enthusiasm, wit and warmth that won the hearts of TV viewers as she meets her many fans. Nadiya, who has since appeared on numerous TV shows, will soon be publishing her first cookbook, Nadiya’s Kitchen.
On Saturday, July 23, TV chef Tom Kerridge will return to his home city of Gloucester to share the skills that have made him a household name and wow the crowds at Gloucester Quays Food Festival.
Tom said: “Having grown up in Gloucester and with strong family ties in the area, I can’t wait to return to the city. I’m really looking forward to meeting everyone at Gloucester Quays Food Festival, it should be a fantastic weekend.”
With his warmth and keen sense of humour, Tom who is the chef patron of the two-Michelin starred Hand and Flowers pub plus another restaurant, The Coach, both in Marlow, has had a hugely successful TV career. With shows such as BBC 2’s Proper
Pub Food and his latest TV programme, Bake Off Crème De La Crème, it seems that Tom and his culinary genius and words of wisdom are never far from our screens.
On Sunday, July 24 it will be the turn of Levi Roots to entertain the visitors to Gloucester Quays Food Festival. Levi soared to fame when he appeared on TV’s Dragon’s Den with his now famous Reggae Reggae Sauce. He went on to open his own Caribbean restaurant, launch a successful musical career, become a motivational speaker and even publish a business book.
Nadiya Hussain, Tom Kerridge and Levi Roots will all be signing their books and meeting and greeting fans at 2.45pm inside Gloucester Quays Outlet on the day that they each appear at the Food Festival.
Gloucester Quays Centre Manager Matt Bird said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming TV chefs Tom Kerridge, Nadiya Hussain and Levi Roots to the Food Festival this year and I’m sure their live cooking demonstrations and the passion they have for creating the finest food are going to thrill our visitors.
“Tickets for the cookery demonstrations are limited so we always encourage people to book early to avoid disappointment. Entry to the rest of the Food Festival is free and it really will be a fantastic event for all the family to enjoy with a host of attractions, some of the finest foods, drink and gifts plus special event offers from many of our retailers.”
Now in its sixth year, Gloucester Quays Food Festival, which attracted a record 148,000 visitors in 2015, is now established as the biggest event of its type in the South West.
More than 120 stalls will offer everything from mouth-watering artisan pies, succulent farm sausages and lovingly brewed real ales to crafts and jewellery.
All the celebrity chef demos and shows will take place in the Aga Rangemaster Cookery Theatre at the heart of Gloucester Quays Food Festival in Mariner’s Square.
Young foodie fans will be able to try their hand in the Kids Cookery Zone in Pillar and Lucy Square (opposite Cineworld), where they will get hands-on guided cooking sessions at the award-winning Kids Cookery School, on the hour each day from 11am to 4pm. Places can be booked on the day.
Throughout Gloucester Quays Food Festival visitors will be able to unwind on the lawn next to the live music stage and enjoy delicious food-to-go, cocktails, real ale and cider whilst listening to some great summertime sounds.
