TV favourite Rosemary Shrager, who’s about to appear on BBC’s The Big Family Cooking Showdown, makes a welcome return to the Great Yorkshire Show.

Rosemary will be joined by a handful of Michelin-starred chefs and a sprinkling of fresh young talent in the Great Yorkshire Show’s two food and cookery theatres.

There’s usually standing-room only at the show’s Game Cookery Theatre and Great Yorkshire Cookery Theatres – both playing host this year to an exciting line-up of cookery demos, cook-offs, and celebrity guests.

Rosemary Shrager will appear in both cookery theatres and will create some mouth-watering dishes including soufflé using Yorkshire Chippendale eggs, summer lamb, and a rabbit, prune and risotto dish.

Rosemary Shrager said: “I’ve always loved coming to the Great Yorkshire Show and have been coming since I lived in Yorkshire in 2009. Even though I have moved back down south, I still love to come back to meet up with old friends as well as doing the cooking demos in the foody theatres. The crowds are always fantastic, the atmosphere is second to none, the food is some of the best in the world and the competitions are among the best in the UK. I can’t wait to come back!”

Leading Yorkshire chef Steph Moon, one of the two cookery theatre co-ordinators, said she was very excited about this year’s line up.

“We have lots of young talent as well as some old favourites that visitors love. There is loads going on and there is a real mix which I am sure everyone will enjoy,” she said.

Young chefs Steph is excited about securing include Ronny Simpson and Callum Bower from newly-opened Horto restaurant at Rudding Park, in Harrogate, and Michael Carr, Head Chef at Restaurant 92 in Harrogate.

Making a welcome return to the Great Yorkshire Show is vegan chef Little Miss Meat Free, Kate Beskow, from Hull, who proved a hit with visitors last year, along with James MacKenzie from Michelin-starred Pipe and Glass.

This year, visitors will be able to ‘Meet What You Eat’ – exhibitors from the Food Hall will be talking about their produce, before handing them onto to the chefs and getting them to cook with them.

“This is a really exciting new feature – chefs will be cooking with the products that our visitors will be hearing about and being able to buy themselves from the show,” she said.

The Food Hall is always packed throughout the three days of the Great Yorkshire Show and this year will no doubt be the same – with opportunities to buy the freshest and best produce from Yorkshire and beyond, including everything from chutney to chips and toffee to tofu!

Rosemary will be cooking every day at 11 – 11.45 in the Food Theatre (Hall 1) and 3 – 3.45 in the Game Cookery Theatre each day

This will be the 159th Great Yorkshire Show, held on Tuesday 11 – Thursday 13 July 2017 on the Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate, North Yorkshire
