The Great British Food Festival

I was invited to do a chef demo with the Wot’s Cooking team at The Great British Food Festival at Weston Park on Sunday 28th May.  I hope my passion for real bread shone through and convinced at least some of the audience that making bread at home is doable and reaps rich rewards.

Here are some action shots of me doing my thing.

I had a great time and I got to meet the very lovely Howard Middleton of Bake Off fame who was on after me. What a lovely chap!

Food festival appearances

The last few weeks have been busy, busy, busy. On Saturday 23rd July I demonstrated bread making at Cosford Food Festival. It was the first time I had presented on a chef demo stage and I absolutely loved every minute of it.

The next weekend saw me on the chef demo stage at the first Telfood Feastival in Telford’s Town park. This time I was demonstrating bread making in the context of additive free. I discussed the difference between the Chorleywood bread making process (the supermarket loaf) and the loaf you can make at home.

I enjoyed both weekends very much thanks to the organisational skills and professionalism of the Wots Cooking team and I am looking forward to my next time on stage.
