BBC Good Food Show Summer, what a line up!
13 – 17 June, NEC, Birmingham

The BBC Good Food Show Events team will be rolling into town once again for their annual Summer Food Show and today announce they will be bringing an all star line up with them to the NEC in June.

James Martin; the Hairy Bikers; John Torode; Gregg Wallace; MasterChef Champion 2012 – Shelina Permaloo; Olly Smith; Michael Caines and local Chef Glynn Purnell will all be cooking live under one roof! The Show will bring to life some of TV’s most loved cookery programmes including Saturday Kitchen featuring the omelette challenge and celebrity guests’ food heaven and hell. Plus MasterChef sessions hosted by the fearsome duo, featuring cook offs and demonstrations.

These foodie favourites will be joined by some of the most exciting up and coming producers in the country including Moofree who will be bringing dairy free chocolate; Tan Rosie selling their range of Caribbean sauces; Sipsmith’s award winning artisan spirits and The Northern Dough company will be bringing their innovative and award winning frozen pizza dough.

Tickets also include entry to BBC Gardeners’ World Live where visitors can pick up tips on how to grow your own from Monty Don; Alan Titchmarsh; Carol Klein; Joe Swift and the rest of the team!

James Martin says: “I love the BBC Good Food Show Summer. To me cooking is all about using fresh, seasonal produce and where better to get that from than your own garden. This is the perfect place to learn how to grow your own with your free entry to BBC Gardener’s World Live. Combine that with inspiration from top chefs, recipe ideas and hundreds of producers to taste, try and buy from and you’ve set yourself up for quite the foodie summer!”
