Festival Chef Cait (left) and Ellen rehearsing with Chef Anand

Three budding chefs are to appear live on stage with Chef Anand George  at food festivals this  year.

The trio are Festival Sous Chefs Ben Vivian, Cait Myers and Ellen Perry. They recently spent time with Chef at Purple Poppadom, learning how to prepare, cook and serve his famous Tiffin Sea Bass dish.

    • Review via Tripadvisor by DenisinWales on 26th September 2018 1st despite the very long sign board covering 2 store fronts, the entrance is a tiny door at the far left.
