Top chefs promise to serve up a treat at annual Lincolnshire Food and Drink Festival

Sponsored once again by DFDS, the event, takes place on Sunday, October 1, and will feature the journey of food, with a farm to fork theme.

Award-winning TV chef and author Rachel Green will join Winteringham Fields head chef and owner Colin McGurran at the Grimsby Institute.

The 2017 festival will feature local food producers such as Scaman’s Eggs, Kippolata and Once Upon A Time, among others.

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 will last just under an hour with the first at noon.

A demonstration will also be given by DFDS, the journey our food takes daily, from how tasty morsels find their way to our plate, sometimes crossing miles of land and sea.

And ahead of the food and drink extravaganza, Rachel has shared not one, but two of her favourite recipes for you to try at home.

Rachel explains her kitchen secrets and what she loves to cook for her family at home: "How do I choose one favourite recipe, there are so many!

The secret to a good plate of food; is most definitely the quality of the ingredients we use.

"I do enjoy Lincolnshire Chine (salt pork filled with herbs), which I combine with mustard and marinate with leeks.

"Also, sausages are high on my list of favourites, I absolutely love sausages, and if you make sure you buy good quality ones, you couldn’t wish for a better convenience food.

"Actually, I love sausages so much, I wrote a book about them, Sausages, Making the most of the Great British Sausage, which then spiraled into an appearance on a Channel 4 with Jimmy Docherty, investigating the ethics of food manufacture.

"Whilst researching for my sausage cookery book, I was fascinated to learn that the Brits are indeed a nation of sausage lovers, so much so, that 5 million of us eat them every day.

"I am also a big fan of Lincolnshire plum bread and around Christmas time it adds a little twist to a traditional bread and butter pudding, people come from far and wide to taste my Christmas Plum Bread and Butter Pudding with English Brandy!

"I also grow a lot of my own produce in my poly tunnel, cooking with ingredients you’ve grown yourself, there’s nothing quite like it.

"I am sharing a couple of my favourite sausage dishes with you, and hope you enjoy them.

"Love, Rachel x."
