Michelin star chef Phil Fanning will kick off the chef demonstrations at Towcester Food Festival in June.

Phil owns and runs Paris House, the fabled restaurant set in 22 acres of parkland at the Duke of Bedford’s estate in Woburn.

He was awarded his Michelin star at the age of 29 and is described as ‘one of the brightest culinary talents in Britain’.

Phil mixes British techniques with influences from Japan and Asia to create stunning plates of food. He will bring a taste of his panache and style to Towcester.

He said: “I’m really looking forward to being involved. I’ve always found food festivals to be hugely enjoyable and inspirational events.”

Phil tops a line-up of great local chefs taking part in the hourly free chef demonstrations that run through the festival weekend. He will kick off the demonstrations with the opening slot at 11.30am on Saturday morning.
