Celebrity Chef to attend second Isle of Man Food and Drink Festival 30 April 2010

Gino D’Acampo, winner of ‘I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!’ will be attending the second Isle of Man Food and Drink Festival, on its opening day, Saturday 25th September. He will be showing off his cookery skills in the Manx Food Theatre during the morning and afternoon and will spend all day at the Festival.

“I am very excited to be a part of the Isle of Man Food and Drink Festival this year” says Gino. “I can’t wait to sample the Island’s brilliant local produce and to add my Italian twist to it in my cooking demonstrations. It’s so important to eat well and to buy fresh local produce to support the local economy so I look forward to seeing what the Isle of Man has to offer.”

The Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture and the Department of Economic Development are supporting the Festival which proved very popular last year with residents and visitors to the Island. It takes place on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th September from 11am to 5pm in the Villa Marina Gardens, Colonnade and Villa Marina Arcade.

The Festival will be a celebration of Manx produce with stallholders offering everything from real ale, queenies, meats, fresh veg, cakes and fudge to taste and to buy. There will be cooking competitions and plenty of activities to entertain young visitors. Local music and dance acts will be also performing throughout the weekend.
