0 Comment

For the third year running it was a pleasure to be part of the annual Morpeth Food and Drink Festival. Featuring more than 100 stalls selling a range of Artisan goods and crafts.

Once again the live cookery demonstration kitchen area was a huge success. Cookery demos took place throughout the day giving local chefs the chance to showcase their culinary skills.

And the line up was:

David McDonald – Geordie Bangers (@Geordiebanger)

For the second year running David took to the stage and once again did not fail to impress, what better way to start the day than a Geordie Banger breakfast?

David attends different markets at various locations but if you want to catch him at Morpeth Farmers Market he’s here every first Saturday of each month.

Paul Barker – The Cube

Paul from The Cube cafe is another Morpeth Food and Drink Festival regular,  was next up on the demo kitchen and he demonstrated something very different, Paul rustled up a warming peanut soup which went down a treat on the crisp Autumn morning.

Deanna Carter – Cafe des Amis (@AmisCafe)

New to the Festival this year was Cafe des Amis, well known in Morpeth for its fantastic pastries and cakes, Deanna and Wendy Smith demonstrated how to bake and decorate the perfect carrot cake.

Andrew Laurie – Barluga (@Barlugamorpeth)

Andrew from Barluga restaurant, situated in the Sanderson Arcade is also a familiar face at the Festival. Last year he wowed the crowed with his soufflés and once again his sizzling seabass was the perfect dish for an inspired lunch.

Abdul Muhit & Son- Morpeth Tandoori

The father and son duo from Morpeth Tandoori are also regulars at the demonstration kitchen and once again cooked some classic Indian dishes. The tasting session would have lasted all day if Abdul has kept on cooking!!!

Ken Froggatt – Marabinis

Ken the Head Chef at the Marabinis took everyone on a Mediterranean journey with an authentic Italian dish.

John McKale – Retired Pastry Chef, Ritz Hotel, London

The last demo of the day came from John McKale a retired pastry chef, previously of The Ritz Hotel, now a church pastor gave the people of Morpeth a baking masterclass!

We wish everyone connected to Morpeth Market lots of success for the coming year. We hope to see you all again at the 4th Morpeth Food and Drink Festival. Thanks again for allowing the Cookery Theatre Company to be part of your wonderful Festival.
