Baker Brothers to appear at Kendal food festival
FOOD lovers should be getting ready to tantalise their taste buds as the Kendal Festival of Food sets to take-over the town.
With a change of date and management for this year, the March 2 and 3 event will offer visitors the chance to experience the very best the area has to offer from Cumbrian artisans and local producers to world class chefs and the very best new talent.
There will be a programme packed full of events and the opportunity to meet celebrity duo, The Fabulous Baker Brothers, who will be signing books as well as demonstrating recipes.
Stacy Hurley, who is organising the festival along with Cath Dutton, said: “We are very, very excited about The Fabulous Baker Brothers coming along to Kendal to help us showcase our local producers to a wider audience.
“Their book will only be released two days before the event so it will be one of the first signings, which makes it even better.”
The timetable of activities for the two-day culinary extravaganza includes chef demonstrations from Justin Woods, of Kendal’s Castle Green Hotel, Cumbria Life Young Chef of the Year 2013 Scott Fairweather, Nick Martin of The Daffodil, Grasmere, and Robert Stacey, head chef at Kendal’s The Castle Dairy.
Kendal College will also host some exclusive master classes ,which will include BBC2’s Great British Menu chef Will Holland, the nationally acclaimed Phil Fanning and Cumbria’s very own Steven Doherty.
With over 50 producer stalls and talks and demonstrations from some of Cumbria’s top artisans including Staff of Life Bakery, Smokey Jo's, Cartmel Cheeses, Woodland Free Range and The Ginger Bakers there will be so much to choose from.
“There really is something for everyone – from the real foodies to the families,” said Ms Hurley.
“As well as all the demonstrations and stalls, there will be a Bake-Off competition, judged by The Fabulous Baker Brothers, a family fun ‘Hunt for Herdy’ and the Westmorland County Agricultural Society featuring the ever-popular ‘Ask the Farmer’. It should all be great fun.”
