Show time with the Best of our Chefs

A whole host of top Yorkshire chefs will be cooking up a storm at the Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate next week.

A programme of foodie favourites will be taking to the stage across the three day event to wow the crowds with their culinary skills.

twit-picThe ever popular Game Theatre which is based in the Country Persuits area will again be run by Yorkshire chef favourite Stephanie Moon, while the Great Yorkshire Food Theatre which this year is located in the brand new £11.5m exhibition hall returns for a second year and will be run by Yorkshire Food Finder’s Sue Nelson to showcase an array of local food and drink producers.

The pair have been working together since the new year to organise a fabulous array of chefs, including two holders of Michelin Star’s – James Mackenzie of the Pipe and Glass Inn near Beverley and Tommy Banks from the Black Swan at Oldstead near Thirsk.

Sue said: “Having two cookery theatres allows us to showcase even more of Yorkshire’s fabulous chef talent on stage. All the chefs are passionate about the abundance of the county’s larder, and what makes it even better is that they’ll be using some of the ingredients available in the food show, making the Great Yorkshire Show a truly fabulous foodie experience.”

This year’s Great Yorkshire Show also sees the return of foodie favourite Rosemary Shrager who will delight the crowds with her inimitable no-nonsense but effervescent style underpinned by a lifetime’s experience ‘on the pans.’

Cookery demo lovers are in for a double delight this year as not only will Rosemary be appearing daily in the Game Theatre located in the Country Pursuits area, but she’ll also be cooking each day in the Great Yorkshire Food Theatre where she will be getting some of the county’s best butchers to help her showcase some of Yorkshire’s finest reared beef, so watch out for some fun and fireworks!

As this that wasn’t enough, this year’s jam-packed cookery line-up also includes Simon Crannage from Swinton Park near Masham, Ronnie Simpson from the Clocktower Restaurant at Rudding Park near Harrogate, Matt Hunter, the head chef at The Star Inn the City, York and MasterChef the Professionals runner-up Dan Graham of The Talbot Hotel, Malton.
