I am really pleased that Bath has dedicated an entire month to the celebration of food in our city. The Great Bath Feast has proven that Bath has an enormous amount to offer food lovers, from some of the best independent cafés in the South West to the ultimate in fine dining restaurants.

There have been some fantastic events going on throughout the festival and I was delighted to be invited to cook at the Chef’s Theatre on Friday, my only problem was deciding which dishes to cook!

After some debate amongst the brigade, we decided to go with some great seasonal dishes such as Spiced Squash Soup and a lovely fine Apple Tart. In contrast to these dishes, I also cooked Salt Baked Sea Bass and Jumbo Prawns – I chose these two dishes to give the audience the chance to learn a new cooking technique to try at home.

Live demonstrations are always daunting but with Dan, my Chef de Partie at my side, everything went according to plan and the audience seemed to enjoy tasting the dishes.
