TV PRESENTER TO TAKE CHILDREN ON AN EDIBLE ADVENTURE AT LIVERPOOL FOOD & DRINK FESTIVAL
Food writer and CBeebies presenter Stefan Gates will take children on an edible adventure at this year’s Liverpool Food and Drink Festival.
Stefan, who presents wild BBC food programmes including Gastronuts, Cooking in the Danger Zone and Feasts, will be sharing his fascination with unusual foods when he appears at Sefton Park on Saturday, September 3 as part of the festival’s two day launch event.
Children up to 14 year olds, who will get in free of charge, will be given the chance to become an intrepid ‘Gastronut’ for the day as they join food fanatic Stefan on a wild culinary adventure, which will see children from around the region being educated about the way food is grown, made, shaped and marketed.
Stefan, whose famous food wonders include custard flame-throwing, bum sandwiches and frying an egg on a piece of paper, said: “I am delighted to be coming to this year’s Liverpool Food and Drink Festival and I hope to encourage children and their families to immerse themselves in the science of food and nutrition.
“Gastronuts is all about igniting children’s interest in what they eat and where their food comes from. I want them to explore the most exotic and unusual ingredients and techniques from the culinary world and develop an amazing curiosity for all things edible.”
The Children’s Interactive Area will return to the Liverpool Food and Drink Festival bigger and better than ever before and will offer children of all ages an array of exciting and interactive activities, provided by the best family and child orientated businesses from the city and beyond.
Families can expect a selection of cookery workshops, taste adventures and inspiring demonstrations from brands including Sapporo Teppanyaki, Home Farm, Vonnybee and Speke Hall.
