I have had the most wonderful three days t the beautiful Tatton Park in Cheshire. The Foodies Festivals run around the country in the Summer months.   Foodies Festivals

I met some talented and inspirational chefs including Norman Musa. The UK’s leading Malaysian food expert. Chef Norman Musa   I am very inspired by his recipes, charm and work ethic. In fact I will be making his chicken satay today!

For vegetarian delights I was also impressed with Master Chef contestant founder of  The Hungry Gecko Jackie Kearney.  Jackie showed us how to make the street food Momo dumplings. So fresh and packed with flavour. I will be trying my own prawn version of these very soon and I will make sure I document the results before they are eaten!

Meeting Glynn Purnell, Chef, author, restaurant owner and regular TV personality was a highlight. He is very entertaining and great fun. His food is a delight and if you are ever in Birmingham I can recommend his restaurant. Gylnn Purnell

Food and entertainment!

Other Chefs demoing in the Chef Theatre included winner of ITV’s  Food Glorious Food Rahalia Hussain.  Rahalia’s winning Korma recipe I can vouch that the dish is worthy of an award!

Ex Corrie star and now award wining Cheese maker Seam Williamson was the compare when I was demeaning my Harrisa Chicken, flat bread and chilli hummus recipes. The cheese he produces is stunning and what a lovely chap he is! Sean Wilsons award winning cheese
