Celebrity chef Matt Tebbutt will be just one of the foodies flocking to Knebworth House next month to get their teeth into the East of England Food Festival.
The feast of food, now in its sixth year, will be open from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, April 11 and 12.
Organisers say they already have a groaning table full of gorgeous grub booked in for the event, including condiments, artisan cheeses, home cured and fresh meat, dairy products, confectionary, bakery, wine, beer and other drinks ready to serve.
There will also be cookware and other kitchen kit, making it the destination for food lovers from far and wide.
Matt’s name will be on the timetable for the programme of food and cookery demonstrations.
He made his name on the small screen with shows like Food Unwrapped on Channel 4 and the BBC’s Great British Food Revival and Saturday Kitchen, and is also known for his work at the renowned Foxhunter restaurant in Monmouthshire.
Ondine Hartgroves, a star turn from TV’s Masterchef, exciting newcomer Tom Perkins and nutrition expert Katharine Tate will also be offering tips and secrets to everyone from the amateur enthusiast through to the most sophisticated gastronome.
