Alan Coxon is headlining chef at Stratford upon Avon Food Festival
The historic setting of Stratford upon Avon will once again be the backdrop for a fabulous food festival bringing a wealth of edible and quaffable treats as well as great live entertainment for all to enjoy. Celebrity chefs, artisan producers and great local watering-holes will come together on the banks of the River Avon and the home of Shakespeare in a fantastic two-day foodie event, which takes place on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd September 2012.
Visitors will be able to munch their way through an amazing selection of artisan food products, many of them locally produced, as well as sample superb wines, champagnes and craft beers, then sit back and watch inspirational culinary demonstrations.
Topping the culinary bill will be the Fabulous Baker Brothers, and chef and TV presenter Alan Coxon who we're proud to have as a member of The Artisan Food Trail. He is also the official ambassador for the Stratford Food Festival.
Alan's love of culinary history helps to bring alive the historic originations of our everyday ingredients. Ranked amongst the Top 10 TV Chefs of the world by BBC world viewers, Alan has starred in TV shows across the globe, cooked for kings and celebrities and is an inspiration in countless kitchens with his range of award winning historic ingredients and cookbooks.
To celebrate his new TV series From Birmingham to Bombay (to be screened across the UK soon) and to pay homage to the Indian summer that he hopes we will all be enjoying during the festival, Alan will be demonstrating Indian influenced recipes.
You can watch Alan Coxon in the cookery theatre on both Saturday and Sunday at 2pm.
The Stratford Food Festival takes place from 10am to 7pm on Saturday 22nd and from 10am to 5pm on Sunday 23rd September.
Tickets cost £5 on the gate.
