Shropshire Lad

Adam Purnell, AKA the Shropshire Lad, was featured in a new Channel 4 food show which aired late January. The concept of ‘Crazy Delicious’, was to introduce the audience to a world where almost everything is edible, and each week saw contestants forage for ingredients to create a “fantastical feast.” Adam was selected to appear in the first episode, alongside judges Heston Blumenthal, Carla Hall and Niklas Eksted.

Adam said, “It was absolutely awesome to be selected for such a ground-breaking, food focused TV show, and to have the chance to present my food to three of my chef heroes was incredibly humbling. The challenge was to take a commonplace ingredient, such as a carrot, and then create a sensational feast using some extraordinary products, foraged from an enchanted garden. I hope I did the Shropshire food scene justice!”

You can see Adam in action locally at the Shrewsbury Food Festival in June and Ludlow Food Festival later in the year.
