Michelin chef promises top tips at tomorrow's free festival
A MICHELIN recognised chef is promising great tips for home cooking at a major event for foodies this weekend.
Clive Dixon chef patron from The White Oak in Cookham, which was recently awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand, is one of the top chefs who will be demonstrating his skills in Marlow tomorrow.
The Marlow Food Festival, which is free to attend, will be held at The Compleat Angler Hotel by Marlow Bridge.
Mr Dixon said: "People go to get ideas, there's lots of people who want to cook at home.
"Last year my demo was popular, got people talking and lots of guests asked me questions after the demo.
"From my point of view it's about tips and advice, very much this time I want to focus on things that make it easier and show dishes that you can do at home. It's about making simple cooking easy and inspiring people to cook at home.
"I think there's a massive interest in food, it's a massive conversation focus."
Mr Dixon has worked alongside some of the UK’s leading chefs, including Heston Blumenthal.
Regarding Michelin recognition, he said: "It's a great accolade to have and we got it in the first year so I'm very pleased."
