Two top celebrity chefs will be sharing their secrets at the Bury St Edmunds Food & Drink Festival over the bank holiday weekend between 10am and 5pm on Sunday 26th and Monday 27th August.

The free, town centre family event will see celebrity chefs James Tanner and Paul Rankin each making three appearances in the Stoves Cookery Theatre, which will also showcase dishes demonstrated by chefs from some of the cathedral town’s restaurants.

As well as the shows in the cookery theatre, the Festival will feature a wide range of local produce stalls and attractions including a farmers’ market.  Younger visitors can watch the Punch and Judy Show, take a fairground ride, see animals in the mini farm and build sandcastles in the urban beach.

On Sunday James Tanner, who has restaurants in Kent and the South West, heads up the menu, while Bank Holiday Monday will see Paul Rankin in the kitchen. He is best known as one of the longest standing and most successful chefs on ‘Ready Steady Cook’.  Both chefs are well known for their extensive television appearances on programmes such as ‘Step up to the Plate,’ ‘Saturday Kitchen’ and ‘Put Your Menu Where Your Mouth Is,’ with James also currently the resident chef on ITV’s Lorraine.

The Angel Hotel has double/twin rooms from £137 B&B; two children under 14 years stay for free sharing their parents room. To book call 01284 714000, www.theangel.co.uk.
