The French TV star will provide a cooking masterclass and question and answer session as part of Rushcliffe Borough Council’s annual event that returns to Central Avenue in West Bridgford from 10am to 4pm on Saturday July 13.


The appearance will complement a fabulous range of local food from over 40 growers, makers, cooks and businesses from across the Borough on the market.


Mr Novelli said: “I am extremely delighted to be part of the Taste of Rushcliffe Food Festival and I look forward to meeting many of the local residents and traders.


“During my interactive demonstration I will be showcasing a selection of delicious, healthy, sustainable dishes which will be easy for people to go home and recreate.


“This promises to be a fun event for all the family and I for sure, cannot wait.”


From fantastic rare breed meats to tasty pies, preserves and pastries, the Taste of Rushcliffe is a showcase of the huge variety of food, drink and talent that the Borough has to offer.
