The acclaimed TV chef, Kenny Atkinson, is showing his support for a country fair in his home village of Darlington.
The event is being held at Grange Community Centre in Hurworth Village near Darlington on the 17th September and Kenny will be doing three cooking demonstrations throughout the day.
The chef, who has his name above the door of the village’s five star resort’s restaurant, The Orangery at the hotel golf and spa resort Rockliffe Hall, is well known for his winning dishes on various TV programmes, such as BBC Two's Great British Menu. And like his appearances on the BBC’s popular weekend cooking show, Saturday Kitchen, Kenny will be showing his cooking skills to the crowds at the fair, which is being organised by Hurworth Parish Council, and will advise how to create his signature dishes in a series of live cooking demonstrations.
The lucky spectators at the front of the stage will then get to taste Kenny’s gorgeous dishes ,which are expected to be made up of one stunning dessert and two fish dishes.
The fair is the first one to be held in the village and is hosted in conjunction with Hurworth Community Association and Saint Theresa’s Hospice.
The family day out which opens at 10:30 has been sponsored by Rockliffe Hall, a well-known hotel in Darlington, alongside Sherwoods of Darlington, Borderfields, and Thomas Watson Auctioneers and the fair promises people all ages fun throughout the entire day.
Kenny says:“This event is the only live demonstration I am going to do this year and it gives the people of Hurworth and further afield the chance to see me cook some of the fantastic signature dishes that they can eat at Rockliffe Hall, without being on TV, and hopefully this will will draw quite a crowd to the first Hurworth country fair. I really want to get involved in the local community, as it is now my home and I’m keen to give something back.”
