“We’ve been thinking about introducing this for a few years now, but we now feel that the timing is right. We’ve always been focused on local talent with every aspect of the festival. The Chef’s Demo area will be no different, with the region’s top chefs rotating over the weekend. We’ve teamed up with Leeds Cookery School to put together what will be an incredible addition to the festival.” – Michael Johnston, North Leeds Food Festival Director.
