FESTIVAL THEATRE KITCHEN
We introduced our theatre kitchen a few years ago, it has grown in size and popularity!
Fresh from making the Queen's 90th birthday cake, 2015 Bake-Off winner Nadiya Hussain will take to the stage in the theatre kitchen.
Nadiya will be appearing on Saturday August 20th in the Garlic Festival food theatre as part of a weekend line up full of chefs and cooking demonstrations, celebrating the best in Isle of Wight produce. Nadiya will also be signing copies of her brand new book Nadiya's Kitchen.
"I can't wait!" Nadiya says. "It's my first time on the Isle of Wight and I've heard so much about the legendary Garlic Festival. I'm really looking forward to demonstrating some of my favourite recipes, using local ingredients, including garlic of course!"
Organiser David Holmes. "As the Island's largest summer show we're thrilled to welcome the star of Britain's biggest TV show. Nadiya really has been taken to the nation's hearts and we're so excited to be bringing her to the Garlic Festival. We're all about family entertainment and of course great food! Our expanded food theatre was a huge hit last year and it goes from strength to strength in 2016. On your marks - get set - bake!"
TV chef and bestselling author Rachel Khoo, well known for Little Paris Kitchen and Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook, was our star name at last year's Garlic Festival.
