A mouthwatering line-up of the UK’s top chefs, bakers and food suppliers is being served up at Chatsworth Country Fair this weekend, on August 29, 30 and 31.

Set to be the biggest and best foodie offering in its 34-year history, the AGA Rangemaster Cookery Theatre situated in the heart of the Fine Food Village has got a tasty selection of live demonstrations from top celebrity chefs and the best of the region’s chefs sharing top tips and delicious recipes for visitors to try at home.

Double Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge is serving up three demonstrations on Friday, August 29 at 11am, 2.20pm and 3.45pm. In a real coup for the fair, it will also be the very first place to get hold of a signed copy of his brand new book Best Ever Dishes. The book is being released ahead of his next BBC2 series of the same name airing in the autumn.

Queen of baking Mary Berry is back for a return visit to the fair, with two demonstrations on Saturday at 11am and 3.30pm. The doyenne of family cooking specialising in Aga cookery, cakes and desserts, is a familiar face on our TV screens with the successful The Great British Bake Off pulling in peak viewing figures of 7.8 million. She will also be signing copies of her latest book.

On Sunday, Lesley Waters will be sharing her cookery skills at 11am and 3.30pm . Well known for her regular television appearances on Ready, Steady Cook, Great Food Live and This Morning, Lesley also runs a successful cookery school in Dorset and has written nearly 20 cookery books.

Gates open at 9am each day with a closing ceremony at 6.30pm.
