Feast of Fun for Foodies at Show

 In 2022, GYS Press Releases

Foodies are in for a fabulous spread at the Great Yorkshire Show when the winner of MasterChef 2022 Eddie Scott and Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda Owen line up with a host of well-known regional chefs to cook up some of the region’s finest produce.

The Great Yorkshire Food Theatre will feature more than 20 chefs, including Callum Bowmer of Horto at Rudding Park, Harrogate, Dragon’s Den contestant Will Chew of Mak Tok in Sheffield, Michelin-starred Shaun Rankin of Grantley Hall near Ripon and Nathan Richardson-Kelly of Castle Howard. Dishes being demonstrated range from steamed rhubarb muthiya to halibut and from chicken pancakes to slow roasted beef.

MasterChef winner Eddie appears on Tuesday. Eddie marries his Punjabi family heritage with a love of French cuisine, using ingredients from the Yorkshire Wolds and coast near his home.
Shepherdess Amanda shares some of her favourite family recipes from her bestselling book ‘Celebrating the Seasons’ on the Friday.

Great Yorkshire Food Theatre Host Sue Nelson said: “We’re thrilled to be hosting some great names who between them exude incredible talent showcasing the best of Yorkshire’s culinary scene. It’s a great coup to have got Eddie to appear on his home turf so soon after his MasterChef win and he joins a brilliant gourmet line-up oozing passion and skill.”

The Game Cookery Theatre makes the most of Yorkshire game, including venison, pigeon, grouse and rabbit. The Game Theatre also features a number of chefs, with Game Cookery Theatre Host Steph Moon joining forces with grouse expert John Cavana to create grouse nuggets and grouse with black pudding.

New for 2022 is an appearance by Year 8 students from St Aidan’s High School in Harrogate who have won the opportunity to cook at the show, with two different forms producing their own game pizzas.

Game Cookery Theatre Host Stephanie Moon said: “It is fantastic to have a full programme at the Show again. We have some new chefs and some young chefs and as always we will be showcasing the very best Yorkshire produce in both theatres.”

Eddie Scott is in the Great Yorkshire Food Theatre on Tuesday July 12 at 2pm and Amanda Owen will be there on Friday July 15 at 2:30pm.
