BAKE Off winner Candice Brown will be cooking up some British classics at this year’s Nantwich Food festival.

The festival’s headline chef won the hearts of the public on her way to victory in the 2016 series of The Great British Bake-Off.

The TV chef and Sunday Times columnist will bring her unique style to this year’s event when she cooks up some home comfort classics with a twist.

A lover of everything vintage, the style icon has developed a huge following that loves her vibrant range of lipsticks and her wickedly infectious laugh.

The Nantwich Food Festival is staged in the heart of the historic town centre, with the cooking theatres easily accessed alongside over 200 food and drink exhibitors from all over the country.

Candice will serve up hearty dishes that she learned to bake with her mum and nan, many of which appear in her new book called Comfort: Delicious Bakes and Family Treats.

She said: “I love to bake and cook old-fashioned comforting food, and talk about what I'm doing and why, where I get my inspiration, my family, my day – about anything really.

“I simply love food, and Nantwich being an old market town and having the food festival set entirely within the centre is everything I love.

“Mainly, I hope to be able to taste and try all the amazing foods and flavours on offer and talk to everyone about what they are doing, making, selling and why.

“I take huge inspiration from experienced foodies and seeking new flavours or combinations to take home and try myself.

“I am very excited.”

Claire Bassano will work alongside Candice. A skilled home economist and chef in her own right, she has worked on BBC2’s Saturday Kitchen and helped to produce numerous cookery books.

Also taking to the hob is Yorkshire-born Nigel Brown who has spent a lifetime in the hotel and catering industry. He has worked in France, produced DVDs and established his own Cookery Academy.

Joining the talented chefs across the packed weekend will be much-loved children’s TV entertainer Katy Ashworth who makes a welcome return with her high-energy show.

Entry to the Nantwich Food Festival marquees and chef demonstrations is free, with a varied programme of events, music and entertainment across the three days.

The Nantwich Food Festival takes place from Friday, September 1 to Sunday, September 3.
