Celebrity chef hails festival

Shropshire Festivals are celebrating a successful Shrewsbury Food Festival weekend. The event was attended by thousands of people who enjoyed a sunny September weekend. Sunday’s visitors had the opportunity to meet multi-Michelin star celebrity chef, Jean-Christophe Novelli.

Jean-Christophe said the festival was “absolutely out of this world and incredible!” He told the organisers he was very impressed with the organisation, set-up and quality of the event.

The Kitchen Depot Cook Along with the Chef Stage was run by Festival Head Chef, Chris Burt, who curated the chef line up at the event. The Cook Along Stage raised £1,082 for Self Help Africa with tickets sales, raffle and donations on the day.

Director Beth Heath, said, “I’m really grateful to our amazing team, volunteers, producers, stall holders, chefs, performers, suppliers and sponsors for making this event so brilliant.”

The award-winning festival team are now preparing for Shropshire Oktoberfest, which is taking place in Shrewsbury’s Quarry on October 1 and 2. The event brings together independent brewers from the region and beyond to serve up to 150 real ales.
