Jean-Christophe Novelli to headline Taste of Rushcliffe Food Festival
13 May 2019
Celebrity chef Jean-Christophe Novelli will headline this year’s Taste of Rushcliffe food festival, in conjunction with Copper Café West Bridgford.
The French TV star will provide a cooking masterclass and question and answer session as part of Rushcliffe Borough Council’s annual event that returns to Central Avenue in West Bridgford from 10am to 4pm on Saturday July 13.
The appearance will complement a fabulous range of local food from over 40 growers, makers, cooks and businesses from across the Borough on the market.
Mr Novelli said: “I am extremely delighted to be part of the Taste of Rushcliffe Food Festival and I look forward to meeting many of the local residents and traders.
“During my interactive demonstration I will be showcasing a selection of delicious, healthy, sustainable dishes which will be easy for people to go home and recreate.
“This promises to be a fun event for all the family and I for sure, cannot wait.”
From fantastic rare breed meats to tasty pies, preserves and pastries, the Taste of Rushcliffe is a showcase of the huge variety of food, drink and talent that the Borough has to offer.
Plus there will be further great cookery demonstrations, more masterclasses and children's activities of a cookery school and food science lab. This will include biscuit making, jelly explosions, pizza making and rocket building.
Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Executive Manager for Communities Dave Mitchell said: “We welcome Jean-Christophe as a familiar name to food lovers and to what should be another great event that highlights our great lifestyle here in Rushcliffe.
“We can’t wait to see what he rustles up in the masterclass and what our local outlets have on offer to tantalise our tastebuds.
“This food festival is all about helping our local businesses become more recognised and giving event-goers a chance to sample the wide range of delicious local treats available.”
The event also coincides with the annual YouNG Summer Market, which highlights young entrepreneurs and performers from across Rushcliffe.
