A popular TV chef and consultant will be guest of honour at an annual Boroughbridge event, set up to champion locally grown produce.

Stephanie Moon – Rudding Park’s executive chef and star of The Great British Menu – will be demonstrating her skills at the Plot to Plate event, now in its second year, on Saturday, May 11.

Co-organiser Jacqui Trott told the Gazette: “The demonstration marquee promises to offer another eclectic, intriguing and entertaining mix – which is something we hope is reflected in the rest of the programme.

“Other exhibitors attending will be selling anything from gingerbread to coffee as well as plants and garden implements to help them grow.

“But the community element continues to flourish, with the Scarecrow Trail back by popular demand as well as the Great Boroughbridge Bake-Off, a petting farm and perhaps one of the most unusual Morris dancing teams you’ll ever see.”

The Plot to Plate event was founded by the Boroughbridge Allotment Society last year to give local producers a showcase and to help celebrate the area’s culinary talents. Ms Moon will be joined by local seafood connoisseur Jonathan Batchelor of Ramus Seafoods and chocolate expert Sophie Jewett on the day.
