Celebrity Masterchef hits the town of Nantwich

Nantwich had a sprinkle of star dust as Celebrity Masterchef was filmed at Mill Island.
The episode to be shown next week features a selection of celebrities whose identities are being kept a closely guarded secret. Judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode, and the entire film crew were welcomed to the town during Holly Holy day and the re-enactment of the Battle of Nantwich.

The Battle took place during the English Civil war in the reign of King Charles I in 1643.
The battle was between the Parliamentarians and the Royalists and saw the Royalists defeated in 1644. In celebration, the Parliamentarians, led by Sir Thomas Fairfax, wore sprigs of Holly in their hats, which gave the event its title.

Andrew Knowles, Cabinet member for health and wellbeing said: “Since our Love Food Hate Waste campaign, I have become increasingly interested in creating new dishes, so I look forward to the programme and getting some ideas.

Andrew Martin, Cheshire East Councillor for the Nantwich Ward said: “I’m pleased the BBC has chosen to feature Nantwich and one of our most famous historical enactments. I’ll certainly be watching.”

The episode will be on our screens on Wednesday, August 11, on BBC 1 at 8pm.
This celebration of good food is perfect for whetting our appetite in time for Nantwich Food and Drink festival, which will take place from 24 - 26 September.
