CHEFS from the prestigious Old Bridge Hotel will be cooking up a celebration of local food at Huntingdon Farmers' Market on Friday next week (February 1).
Senior sous-chef Arun Manickam and pastry-chef Avinash Shashidhara will be using fresh, local produce from the farmers' market to prepare seasonal dishes for shoppers to taste. The chefs' demonstration will take place between 11am and 1pm in the market square.
Rosemary Hoskins, from the farmers' market, said: "This is the third year that the Old Bridge Hotel's chefs will have demonstrated their skills at the market. The partnership creates an inspiring event, as the farmers' market is the best place to find local and seasonal produce that the best chefs are interested in using.
"Our customers always appreciate the chefs' ideas for making the most of the high quality produce available from the market and, of course, tasting the dishes they prepare is an added treat."
Councillor Colin Hyams, whose executive councillor responsibilities at Huntingdonshire District Council include the farmers' market, said: "This has become a regular date in the calendar, and an ideal opportunity for customers to see what creative recipes the chefs can come up with that they can try at home."
Huntingdon Farmers' Market, which was named top farmers' market in the East of England by Country Life magazine, is held every other Friday from 8am to 2pm in the market square.
