Celebrity chefs will be a star attraction at Bury St Edmunds’ popular food and drink festival this summer.

Rick Stein’s executive chef, his middle son Jack Stein, and Paul Rankin, best known as one of the longest standing and most successful chefs on Ready Steady Cook, will be demonstrating their culinary talents at the Our Bury St Edmunds Food & Drink Festival over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Taking to the stage in the Stoves Cookery Theatre, they are expected to be a huge draw.

Mark Cordell, chief executive of the Ourburystedmunds business group, which organises the event, said: “Jack and Paul will be putting on three shows each on the days they are here but I hope during the event they will also have the opportunity to see what a wonderful food and drink offering we have in Bury St Edmunds.

“I’m very much looking forward to seeing what’s on their menus.”
