So, next week its the BBC Good Food Show Summer -12-16 June – I’ll be attending on the Weds and cannot wait. If you’ve never been before and aren’t sure what to expect, have a look at my overview from the Winter show last year here.
The Summer show looks to be bigger and better than ever with a new app (I’ve just downloaded it) to help you plan your day and find your way and a whole host of celebrity chefs doing their thing. Once again, the supertheatre will have live cooking demos from chefs including James Martin, Glynn Purnell and Tom Kitchin and winning dishes will be on the menu in the Masterchef restaurant.
As you know, for me, its all about #local so I’ll be heading to the producers village once again to search out my local suppliers and as part of the BBC Good Food Blogger community, I’ve been involved in the search for the Midlands Best Streetfood. It will be great to see some of our local food heros there at the show as a result and I recommend you all to get over to the Ross and Ross and Jabberwocky stalls to taste what they have to offer. You won’t be dissapointed.
This year, I’ll be interviewing Natalie Coleman, 2013 Masterchef champion and Susy Atkins, Saturday Kitchen Wine Expert. With my mum beside me, we’re sure to have a fantastic day.
My one top tip – take a big bag and comfortable shoes. Lots of traders take card but keep cash on you for little purchases! I’ll report back and let you know how we got on and in the mean time, whet your appetite with my pictures from the BBC Good Food Show Winter here.
