TV Chefs sign up for Ourburystedmunds Food & Drink Festival...

Two of television’s best loved chefs will be the stars of the show at the Ourburystedmunds Food and Drink festival this summer.    Brian Turner and Lesley Waters will each headline on one day of the two-day event, organised by the Business Improvement District (BID) over the August Bank Holiday.


Brian Turner who appeared on ‘Ready Steady Cook’ from its early days in 1994  and worked at various top London establishments before opening his own restaurant in 1986 will cook in the festival’s Aga Rangemaster Theatre Kitchen on Monday 25th August.  


Lesley Waters, who has worked in television since 1989 and written nearly 20 cookery books, will appear on Sunday 24th August.  Both will give three demonstrations on the day they appear, allowing an opportunity for as many as possible to ensure they don’t miss them.


Chief Executive of the BID Mark Cordell said:  “I’m delighted we have secured two top names for this year’s Ourburystedmunds Food and Drink Festival.  Lesley and Brian will both be familiar to many from their television careers and I know they will put on entertaining cooking displays.  The Aga Rangemaster Theatre Kitchen always draws big crowds at this event and with two very popular celebrity chefs taking part it will be no different this year.”


The 2014 Ourburystedmunds Food and Drink Festival will be the third to be held and the event is growing in both popularity and size.  With different offerings throughout the town centre including a Farmers’ Market, cooking demonstrations and a chilli festival the free event is fast becoming a significant fixture in the East Anglian foodie calendar.
