Plymouth’s West End Food Fayre is being held in conjunction with the Grand Day Out and is making a return to Frankfort Gate this month for the second consecutive year. For full details, click here.

From 10am to 4pm, Michelin Star Chef, Peter Gorton, will once again be cooking up a storm in the kitchen.

Using seasonal produce provided by market traders, Peter will be showcasing a number of tasty treats that can later be tried at home. The cooking demonstrations will take place at 11.30am, 1.30pm and 3pm.

Peter will also be judging a children’s cup cake decorating competition. Sponsored by Lawson’s, Sweet Harmony will be showing how to decorate a cup cake with the Cookie Monster (10.45am), Unicorns (12.15pm) and Roses (2.15pm). Head along to the Food Fayre to pick up tips on how to decorate a winning creation before making your own. Prizes will be awarded to the best creations.

The marquee will include a selection of food and drink traders selling a range of delights, such as fudge, flapjacks, oils, scotch eggs, cheese and Riverford boxes. There will even be an oversized signature cake on display, made by Sweet Harmony.

As well as food there will be a pop-up Prosecco Bar and The Jagger Gin Bar.

Steve Hughes, Chief Executive of the Plymouth City Centre Company, said: “We’re delighted to welcome back Peter Gorton for the cooking demonstrations. And I am looking forward to sampling his work.

“With the market celebrations going on at the same time, there is going to be a fantastic atmosphere in the West End and we hope people come along to see the improvements and just what this area has to offer.”

Hours of fun can be had with workshops and demonstrations, classic cars, street entertainers and the final of Plymouth’s Top Talent.
