The best of British will be at Kirkgate Market this weekend as two Yorkshire chefs are making an appearance.
Brian Turner, known for his stints on Ready Steady Cook and his many years as resident chef on This Morning will be at The Source this weekend signing copies of his new book – “A Taste of Summer.”
Bringing another slice of Yorkshire charm to the market halls will be runner up of this year’s Master Chef competition - Tom Rennolds. Tom will be at The Source from 10.45am – 2pm working with Hayes Seafood stall ‘shucking’ oysters and promoting his Best of Yorkshire Food Festival.
Both chefs will be in the market on Saturday 26 May 2012 as part of the celebrations for the Leeds Loves Food festival. You can also catch Brian doing a demonstration in Millennium square with produce from Kirkgate market on Friday 25 May.
Councillor Gerry Harper, Leeds City Council markets champion said:
“It is great to see chefs from the region coming to the market, which is home to such a variety of excellent local food.
“The city will be celebrating everything there is about food this weekend and the market is an obvious place to start! “
As part of the promotions around the Global Food Market and Leeds Loves Food, Kirkgate Market is offering a voucher booklet and an hour’s free parking in the market car park when you spend over £20 in the indoor market.
