CELEBRITY chef Tom Kerridge will return to a South Bucks bookshop this weekend - a year after a line of around 150 turned out to meet him.

The double Michelin-starred cook will greet fans and sign copies of his new book, ‘Tom Kerridge’s Best Ever Dishes’ at Horizons on Burnham High Street, from 10am until 11.

Last year, his appearance brought together excited fans from across the area for the chance to meet their culinary hero, who has found huge success as a restaurateur, author and TV presenter.

Bookshop owner Ian Fletcher said: "We're very happy he's coming back this year, Tom is very big news around here.

"He doesn't do that many book signings, and because we had such a success last year his publisher contacted us and asked if we wanted to do it again, and we're very keen to have him back."

The Marlow chef, who runs the Hand and Flowers with his wife Beth, is branching out from this autumn after taking over the Coach and Horses pub on West Street just metres from his award-winning restaurant.

Horizons formerly had a branch directly opposite the Kerridges’ new venture, occupying the West Street building now housing Costa for ten years until 2007.
