Celebrity chefs unveiled for Our Bury St Edmunds festival

 

Food-lovers will have chance to see an Our Bury St Edmunds favourite celebrity chef again this year when the popular Paul Rankin returns to the annual Food & Drink Festival in August. Paul will turn up the heat in the Stoves Cookery Theatre on Bank Holiday Monday while on Sunday, newcomer to the event and former soap star Sean Wilson will be donning his chefs’ whites.

 

Sean and Paul will each make three appearances in front of the Cookery Theatre crowds with top chefs from some of Bury’s favourite restaurants taking the other spots on the menu.

 

Bank Holiday Monday will star Paul Rankin, who is best known as one of the longest standing and most successful chefs on ‘Ready Steady Cook’. On Sunday Sean Wilson, who was in ‘Coronation Street’ for 21 years as Martin Platt before presenting Channel 5’s ‘Great Northern Cookbook’, will demonstrate his skills as a self-taught cook and multi-award winning cheesemaker.

 

The free-entry two-day event is organised by the town centre Business Improvement District (BID) organisation Our Bury St Edmunds. Events Manager Jackie Regan said: “Paul Rankin is one of the most popular chefs to take part in our Food & Drink Festival and I’m delighted he’s agreed to come back for a third time. Sean Wilson has been such a well-known character in ‘Coronation Street’ that I’m sure he’ll be entertaining for the fans who are already familiar with his cooking as well as those who remember him as a soap star.”

 

The Our Bury St Edmunds Food & Drink Festival will run from Sunday 30th to Monday 31st August and, as well as the demonstrations in the cookery theatre, will feature a wide range of local produce stalls and attractions including a farmers’ market.
