Seaham Food Festival

A full weekend of fantastic food and family fun down by the sea? I’ll have a large slice of that please!

Set in the lively harbour town of Seaham, this mouth-watering festival – which is taking place on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 August – is one of the real highlights of the culinary year with top chefs, fabulous traders and producers, and tasty demos all being dished up.Among the many celebrity chefs on hand will be Saturday Kitchen presenter Matt Tebbutt (pictured). Matt – who also presents on BBC 2’s Best Bites, as well as Food Unwrapped on Channel 4 – has worked at some of the most prestigious restaurants in the UK and certainly knows his onions.Other big names to look out for include Cherish Finden (known for her feisty judging on Bake Off: The Professionals), Chris Bavin (co-presenter of BBC 1’s Eat Well For Less?), Jordan Banjo (Chris Bavin’s new co-presenter), Stacie Stewart (who reached the final four on BBC’s MasterChef and is presenter of How To Lose Weight Well) and Ryan Riley (founder of the multi-award-winning Life Kitchen and Life Kitchen Cookery School).

Seaham – with its beautiful scenic views – is always a pretty tasty place to visit, but it’s even tastier when this glorious festival is on. Check out the website, below, for full details.
