After an incredibly successful festival in 2022, locals will be delighted to hear that Nantwich Food Festival has confirmed the dates for 2023; Festival dates are Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd September inclusive.

The Festival committee reports that plans are well-advanced for this time of the year, with exhibitor re-bookings at an all time high, and many of the Festival events and entertainment already arranged.

Turning to Chef Demonstrations, Festival chef organiser, Karen Young tells us "The town centre will be buzzing this year with all the great chef demonstrations.

Nantwich Food Festival is unique in providing such a high quality event completely free to visitors, so I am thrilled to announce a start to the wonderful line-up of Celebrity Chefs who will be demonstrating this year.

We are delighted to bring the almost local Simon Rimmer to the 2023 Nantwich Food Festival and know that foodies from near and far will be keen to see him at work.

Simon is the chef and co-presenter of Sunday Brunch, the Sunday morning show waking up the nation with a mix of chat, current affairs, guests and food. He has a wealth of TV experience, and has appeared across many channels. Just some of his numerous credits include Win It, Cook It, Meals in Moments and Recipe for Success. Simon also hosts the podcast ‘Grilling’ in association with Weber BBQ’s; the podcasts launched in November 2020.

Following the success of Sunday Brunch, Simon co-hosted an initial 4 part Channel 4 documentary Tricks of the Restaurant Trade, giving insight into the tactics employed by many high end and high street restaurants to entice customers, which followed up with a popular series 2.”

Karen Young goes on to say “Aside from his hectic filming schedule, Simon is a chef/owner of 14 restaurants in the northwest of England and one in Dubai. Simon’s real passion for food began as a restaurateur and he continues to cook in the restaurants every week, which he enjoys immensely.

Away from television, Simon is a big football fan and he is involved with Manchester City Football Academy teaching young up and coming players about eating, nutrition and cooking at specially designed cookery courses.”

Karen concludes by saying “To add to his talents, Simon has written and published five successful books which continue to sell well, including the recent Sunday Brunch Cookbook. He also regularly contributes to food magazines including Delicious, Olive, and BBC Good Food Magazine and Vegetarian Living.”

There are well-advanced plans to showcase more celebrity and local chefs, so watch out for more news over the forthcoming months.

In other news, the Festival team has been enhanced by the addition of new volunteers to take on key roles including the all-important areas of music, other entertainment, business liaison and help for the Exhibitor Manager.

There is now also an even closer link between the Festival organisation and town businesses; Nick Birchall of the popular The Cheese Shop in Hospital Street has joined the Festival Team, and will represent town businesses in discussions and plans.

    Volunteering is an extraordinary avenue for individuals to make a real and positive impact on their communities and the world at large. It is a testament to the power of compassion, empathy, and selflessness. When we choose to dedicate our time and skills to helping others, we not only uplift those in need but also experience personal growth and fulfillment. The essay examples provided in this link showcase the diverse ways in which volunteering can transform lives. From working with disadvantaged youth to supporting environmental conservation efforts, these essays highlight the immense value of volunteering in addressing social issues and fostering a sense of unity. Volunteering not only benefits the recipients of our assistance but also allows us to develop new skills, expand our networks, and gain a broader perspective on life. It promotes understanding, empathy, and a deeper connection to the world around us. I think this is a good idea to grow.

    很多留学生在完成Book Report写作的过程中都不够仔细,可能也是因为对Book Report写作不太熟,总是在莫名其妙的地方被扣分。有些留学生就算找Book Report代写 也都一样拿不到高分,原因在哪里呢?
