Coventry City Centre will be a hive of activity again with live cookery demonstrations, a wide selection of food and drink vendors, tasters, entertainment and more.

This year Glynn Purnell and Rosemary Shrager will be cooking up a storm for the proceedings over the weekend, with Glynn appearing on Saturday and Rosemary on Sunday.

Glynn Purnell owns and runs Purnell’s Restaurant and Purnell’s Bistro & Ginger’s Bar in Birmingham. Purnell’s Restaurant was awarded a Michelin star in 2009, which it has retained every year since. Glynn became a household name after taking part in the Great British Menu, winning the show twice and then later appearing as a mentor.

He previously featured on The Great British Food Revival and The Secret Chef, among other television programmes and can regularly be seen on Saturday Kitchen as a guest chef and host.

Rosemary Shrager’s professional career includes working under Pierre Koffmann at the internationally famous Tante Claire restaurant in London and also a period working for Jean-Christophe Novelli.

The nation fell in love with her when she took part in I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here. She regularly appears on popular television series The Real Marigold Hotel, and, in 2017, was a judge on The Big Family Cooking Showdown.

Rosemary is now based in Tunbridge Wells where she runs Rosemary Shrager’s Cookery School. Her latest book Rosemary Shrager’s Cookery Course is out now.
