Food and Drink Festival Gizzi with excitement

Food and Drink Festival Gizzi with excitement

GORDO'S big mate, TV chef and food writer Gizzi Erskine, is the star attraction at this year's Liverpool Food and Drink Festival.

The Holly Go-lightly lookalike (try saying that after a few Sailor Jerrys) will be serving an all-day Breakfast at Tiffany's when she joins more than 160 Merseyside chefs and producers at the open-air feast at Sefton Park in September. She will be demonstrating recipes from her new book, Skinny Weeks and Weekend Feasts. 

Denise Harris, Event Director of Liverpool Food & Drink Festival, says she is delighted that the Cook Yourself Thin and Cookery Schoo’ star - renowned for her trademark sixties beehive - will be bringing some style to this year’s festival. 

Not that there's anything wrong with a foul mouthed sausage-handed bloke going a demo under your awning or anything.

She said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming Gizzi Erskine to this year’s Liverpool Food & Drink Festival. I am confident that her refreshing style will be a big hit at our annual celebration of the city’s thriving food and drink scene."

Gizzi Erskine, who trained at Leith’s School of Food and Wine, added: “I’ve heard great things about Liverpool Food & Drink Festival so I’m really excited about coming to experience the event for myself.

 “I love the idea that so many local chefs come together to put on a feast in the middle of a park, and with all the demos and master classes going on as well, it promises to be a fantastic weekend.” 

The launch weekend (Sept 7-8) will also include a beer festival, a champagne bar and music from local bands. Add themed areas, such as the ‘heavenly chocolate garden’, there will be plenty for budding young foodies to enjoy, with a dedicated interactive children’s zone with a Junior Chefs’ Academy. 

Festivities are set to continue for the rest of the week (7-15 September) with a programme of food and drink events at bars, cafes, restaurants and arts venues across the city. 

Tickets start from £5 online and entry is free for children (under 14).
