A MICHELIN-starred chef will be demonstrating his culinary skills in Durham city later this year.
Jean-Christophe Novelli will cook for the public several times on each day of the Durham City Food Festival on October 27 and 28.
The festival, organised jointly by the Durham Markets Company and Durham University, is in its second year.
“I am delighted to be associated with it,” said Jean-Christophe, who runs a food academy in Hertfordshire. “The North East is home to a wealth of talented producers and chefs. The festival is a chance to celebrate the region’s riches.”
