Show at NEC a tasty dish
MORE PLEASE! BBC GOOD FOOD SHOW GOES DOWN A TREAT WITH CHEFS AND FANS
WHOEVER came up with the idea of having a show dedicated to food is a genius.
The BBC Good Food Show is foodie heaven – crammed with hundreds of different stalls, edible goodies and drinks.
You can try an array of amazing foods and also drink some of the finest alcoholic beverages available.
Food- lovers can basically spend an entire day drinking and eating. What’s not to love?
The show, which was held at the NEC for four days, also hosted some of Britain’s best and mostloved chefs. Chelmsley Wood’s Glynn Purnell summed it up perfectly when he said “it’s the biggest food event in the country and it takes place right here in Birmingham.”
Celebrity favourites Prue Leith, James Martin and Paul Hollywood returned to the show this year and as well as meeting fans they shared their top tips.
TV favourite Mary Berry was a sure- fire hit and fans were delighted when she revealed her secrets on how to make the perfect banoffee pie over at the Big Kitchen alongside Marcus Bean.
Jamie Desogus, head chef at the highly- rated Harborne Kitchen, also made his debut on the BBC Good Food Stage.
The Good Food Show had it all, and I even managed to pick up some great, unusual Christmas presents. I love that you can basically hang a glass around your neck and sample lots of different drinks.
Everything I ate I enjoyed and I loved all the samples – I have been visiting this show for years and this year didn’t disappoint.
Glynn Purnell, owner of Michelin starred restaurant Purnell’s, took on Tommy Banks in the ultimate cook off among the variety of activities.
“The BBC Good Food Show Winter is such a huge occasion. It’s the biggest food event in the country and it takes place right here in Birmingham,” said Glynn.
“The show is always good fun – as a chef you get to meet and see other chefs who you might not have seen in a while and mingle with the crowds.”
The BBC Good Food Show Summer is set to return next June. For full information visit www. bbcgoodfoodshow. com/ birmingham- winter
