County’s top chefs heading to Telegraph’s Live Lincolnshire Food and Drink Festival
26th June 2017
Two of the region's finest chefs will be showcasing their culinary skills at the highly-anticipated Live Lincolnshire Food and Drink Festival in Grimsby later this year.
Colin McGurran and Rachel Green will perform cookery demonstrations at the event this October held at the Grimsby Institute.
Last year, Live Local Lincolnshire Food and Drink Festival welcomed hundreds of visitors to the Oaklands Hall Hotel, impressing them with the delicious food on offer.
Sponsored once again by DFDS, the event, which will be held on Sunday, October 1, will feature the journey of food, with a farm to fork theme.
Colin McGurran, of the highly regarded Winteringham Fields, has gained fans across the world thanks to his appearances on three series' of the BBC's Great British Menu.
Born in Zambia, Colin first visited Winteringham Fields – then a two Michelin-starred restaurant owned by Germain and Annie Schwab – 12 years ago and found his perfect restaurant.
It now boasts two AA rosettes for its restaurant, five AA gold stars for its rooms and has been crowned The Journal's Restaurant Of The Year an impressive three times.
Colin will be giving a demonstration at this year's event, and while the dish itself remains top secret, it is certain provide visitors with a few tasty tips they can take into their own kitchen.
A few signings of Colin's book, A Table At The Fields, may be requested on the day, too.
He will be joined at the festival by award-winning chef, local food campaigner, food stylist, TV celebrity, Rachel Green.
The top chef, who is also author of Making The Most of The Great British Sausage and the Chatsworth Cookery Book, insists food production is in her blood. Her family have been farming in Lincolnshire for 14 generations.
Rachel, of Tealby, picked up her first kitchen utensils when she was little more than a toddler. And when she wasn't experimenting in the kitchen, she was out lambing the ewes, shooting game or skinning a deer.
It's safe to presume that Rachel's menu - also top secret! - on the day will be one that is created with local, home-grown produce and will certainly tantalise those tastebuds.
Rachel said she was looking forward to giving a live demonstration at the Grimsby Institute and added that she will be bringing with her a host of locally-sourced seasonal produce.
The cooking demonstrations will be ticketed on the day so be sure to arrive early to book your seat in the demonstration kitchen at The Institute.
Each demonstration will last just under an hour with the first at noon.
Keep an eye out in your Grimsby Telegraph for a chance to win a one-to-one cookery experience with Rachel at her home in the Lincolnshire Wolds.
The festival will feature local food producers such as Scaman's Eggs, Kippolata and Once Upon a Time, to name but a few.
DFDS, who will have a big presence on the day, will be able to demonstrate the journey our food takes daily, from how tasty morsels find their way to our plate, sometimes crossing miles of land and sea.
Lincolnshire oozes talent and visitors can be sure to love this year's entertainment, much of which will come from competitors of this year's Lincolnshire's Got Talent show.
DFDS will be on hand to discuss careers within the industry so if you fancy yourself as a character in the story of food, be sure to ask them about career choices.
