Cabot Circus is set to host a two-day culinary extravaganza this weekend of August 18th and 19th. Celebrity chefs Jean Christophe Novelli and Dean Edwards will take to the stage to showcase their culinary talents along with head chefs from restaurants within Cabot Circus.
The free event will see the celebrity chefs demonstrate their skills and reveal the secrets that have helped them achieve their successes. On Saturday Jean Christophe Novelli will share some of his culinary secrets with us and also judge the final of the Cookie Competition, where the winner will scoop £100 worth of Carluccios vouchers. The excitement continues on Sunday when Dean Edwards will teach the Bristol crowd some delicious and simple recipes.
Jean Christophe Novelli said, “I am looking forward to being part of the Food Festival at Quakers Friars. Visitors to the event can expect to see wonderful dishes being prepared healthily, using local produce. The recipes will be full of flavours that some may find unusual to combine but the results will be fabulous I promise.”
Dean Edwards said: “I’m delighted to be appearing at the Closer to Food event at Cabot Circus in my hometown of Bristol. The city has a fantastic reputation for food and drink, a great range of restaurants and culinary talent. I’ll be cooking some exciting recipes at the event and look forward to welcoming the people of Bristol in August.”
As well as picking up some expert tips, visitors will be able to indulge in seasonal delicacies from a special local produce market, which includes a selection of cakes, artisan breads, locally-produced cheeses, chutneys, sausages and more.
There will also be a variety of stalls for visitors to explore, with Brasserie Blanc, Frankie & Benny’s and Harvey Nichols amongst those with produce and items on offer for shoppers.
