Two more celebrity chefs added to Bishop Auckland Food Festival line-up

A MasterChef champion and Great British Bake Off runner-up will be among the Sunday headliners at this year’s Bishop Auckland Food Festival.

The festival, run by Durham County Council, pulled in a record 30,000 visitors last year and returns to the town on Saturday April 22 and Sunday April 23.

A weekend of delicious food and fantastic entertainment is in store, with some well-known faces taking to the stage throughout.

Organisers have already confirmed Saturday’s cookery demonstrations line-up of Phil Vickery, Rachel Allen and Janusz Domagala.

Sunday’s line-up will start with MasterChef 2018 winner Kenny Tutt.

Kenny co-founded PITCH Restaurant & Cookery School with his wife Lucy in his hometown of Worthing just a year after winning the title. He’s also headlined food festivals and events across the UK and cites Keith Floyd, Gary Rhodes, Paul Rankin, Jamie Oliver, and Rick Stein among his influences when growing up. A self-confessed burger nerd, Kenny continues to bring new ideas to the kitchen, and most recently launched a brand-new concept, Patty Guy.

He will share Sunday’s stage with Great British Bake Off 2022 runner-up, Sandro Farmhouse. A passionate baker, Sandro has dedicated his free time to creating show-stopping cakes and desserts.

Completing the Sunday line-up is Sandro’s fellow 2022 Bake Off contestant, Janusz.

Details of all the food traders, family entertainment, and cookery workshops are set to be announced very soon.
