A summer programme of activity across Sunderland’s city centre will get off to a mouthwatering start with a chance to watch top TV chef Si King in action.
On Monday July 25, Minster Park will host a Family Fun and Food Day, organised by Sunderland BID and with support from Sunderland City Council. Along with face painters and family entertainment, visitors can enjoy the opportunity to watch chefs cook up healthy meals.
Si will be hosting three sessions on the day – at noon, 1pm and 2pm – where he’ll be demonstrating a recipe from his latest cookbook, The Hairy Dieters’ Simple Healthy Food: 80 Tasty Recipes to Lose Weight and Stay Healthy.
“Just because something is healthy doesn’t mean that it isn’t delicious,” said Si. “I hope the demonstrations will showcase that and will also inspire everyone to go home and try out the recipe for themselves.”
The event will also showcase a number of homegrown food heroes, starting at 11am with a demonstration by Nedhi Chera of The Funky Indian Wali. At 3pm, fitness guru Joe Sexton, who runs Fat Loss Feast, will also be showcasing meals that can easily be made at home.
The demonstrations are being supported by Ocado, and there will also be an opportunity to win a copy of The Hairy Dieters’ cookbook.
