TWO celebrity chefs will judge visitors gastronomic creations at the Royal Cheshire Show later this month.

Cheshire’s premier agricultural show will this year be welcoming celebrity chefs Jean-Christophe Novelli and Luis Troyano to the Roberts Food Live Theatre where they will judge the delectable dishes created by visitors to the show.

Visitors to the north west’s premier agricultural show are invited to take part in their own bake off and put their skills to the test.

Choose pie or cake and bring your creation along on the day to be scrutinised by our guest chefs and win fabulous prizes.

Categories in each section include under 12s – for our budding chefs of the future. Amateur category for keen home cooks and a professional category to allow entries from industry professionals who want their creations to be judged by the masters.

The celebrity chefs will also be demonstrating their cooking skills on both show days, using the finest, locally sourced produce.

Great British Bake Off hero Luis Troyano will be showcasing his bread making skills and home styled recipes and Jean-Christophe Novelli will create mouth-watering dishes and explode the myths surrounding French cookery.

Nigel Evans, executive director of the Cheshire Agricultural Society and organiser of the show said: “The Royal Cheshire County show is a tremendously successful event drawing crowds from across the region and beyond.

"Cheshire is blessed with a host of high quality produce, much of which we are showcasing in the Robert’s Bakery Food Hall and Food Live Theatre.

"We are thrilled to have two such well known faces on board this year and hope visitors rise to the Pie VS Cake challenge."
