Cookery Demonstrations

Renowned chef Nigel Brown will host the cookery demos on the Friday and will create some of his own dishes in addition to welcoming Nancy Birtwhistle, the 2014 Great British Bake Off winner, 2016 Masterchef quarter-finalist Mike Williams and some stars of the local catering scene.

On the Saturday, local radio presenter Darren Lethem will be joined by the Michelin-starred Paul Leonard from The Devonshire Arms in Skipton and by 2018 Masterchef semi-finalist Anthony O’Shaughnessy, with Mike Williams returning to serve a second helping.

The Saturday will also see the final of the Community Chef of the Year challenge. The competition is open to non-professional cooks throughout Hull and East Yorkshire and the top two will prepare and serve their dishes in front of the judges and the festival audience.
