Guest Chefs at the 2013 Isle of Man Food & Drink Festival
The Isle of Man Food & Drink Festival is building a reputation for attracting celebrity chefs to the event, adding their personal sparkle to proceedings and producing mouthwatering recipes, using local Manx produce. The Hairy Bikers were our first guests in 2009 and they were followed by Gino D'Acampo in 2010, Stacie Stewart and James Martin in 2011 and Ainsley Harriott in 2012.
In 2013, we're thrilled to be welcoming The Fabulous Baker Bros - Tom and Henry Herbert – one a baker, the other a chef and butcher will be the major attraction at this year’s Isle of Man Food & Drink Festival on the weekend of September 21 and 22. Their 2012 Channel 4 television series was enormously popular and they have published 2 great cookery books which we hope to have for sale here. Tom is a baker whilst Henry trained as a chef and now runs a butchers shop next door to the family bakery in Chipping Sodbury. Together, they deliver a great show and fabulous food so we are looking forward to finding out what they are going to cook using fresh, local Manx produce. They will give 2 demonstrations on Saturday and Sunday, judge the I Love Manx Professional Chef competition, sign books and meet producers and Festival visitors.
Hope you'll come along and enjoy the show!
