Two of the county's leading chefs will be cooking up a storm using tasty local ingredients at the launch of this year's EDP Norfolk Food Awards this Saturday.

The cookery theatre, which will showcase new ideas for recipes including a shrimp risotto and apple charlotte, will be among the highlights of the exciting event at the Forum in Norwich.

Members of EDP Norfolk magazine will join chefs Richard Hughes, from the Lavender House, Brundall, and Daniel Smith, from the Wildebeest, Stoke Holy Cross, from 10am until 4pm.

Mr Smith, who was one of last year's winners, said: “I like to give people ideas and encourage them to cook local produce and to show them how to make the best use of seasonal food.

Mr Hughes added: “I really feel Norfolk food should be celebrated and the food awards are a great opportunity to get everyone involved from restaurants to suppliers, and it is a way of promoting Norfolk and everything it has to offer.

“I hope the cookery theatre will inspire people to have a go and the recipes are all ones which people can have a go at producing when they get home.”

They will also cook a game dish in their line-up to coincide with the season starting in the county.

There will be plenty of opportunity to sample and buy some of the region's finest produce, and maybe even get in a little early Christmas shopping.

Visitors will be able to pick up nomination forms for the new awards to highlight which people and places within the county's hospitality industry deserve more recognition.

t You will be able to make food award nominations on EDP24 in the coming weeks.
