MasterChef winner to visit the New Forest and Hampshire County Show


Jane Devonshire, winner of MasterChef UK 2016 will be making an appearance at the 2019 New Forest and Hampshire County Show which is taking place on 30th, 31st July & 1st August. Jane will be cooking live at The Kitchen by Chewton Glen in the Local Produce Market on Wednesday 31st July at 1.30pm. Jane will be cooking with fresh locally sourced produce from across Hampshire.

Visitors can meet Jane Devonshire after her demonstration at the Hampshire Fare stand in the Local Produce Market where she will be selling and signing copies of her new book ‘hassle free gluten free’. Since winning MasterChef in 2016, Jane Devonshire has taken the bull by the food horns and tested herself further by working with a number of top chefs including Marcus Wareing, Atul Kochhar, Jason Atherton, Michel Roux and Michael O’Hare at their restaurants. Since MasterChef’ inception, over 300 million viewers worldwide have tuned in to watch contestants transform their lives through a passion for cooking and the phenomenon shows no signs of slowing down. Jane has presented at numerous food and drink shows around the UK, including the BBC Good Food Show. Her travels have taken her from Edinburgh to Brighton, in the course of which she has developed a love for presenting her recipes and chatting to people about food. This year Jane will be adding the New Forest Show to the list.

The Kitchen sponsored by Chewton Glen will also feature a busy timetable of cooking demonstrations from top local chefs each day including Matthew Whitfield from Montagu Arms, Beaulieu and James Durrant from Ideal Collection. James Durrant joined Gordon Ramsay’s Hospital Road shortly after it had won its third Michelin star.

In addition to the live cooking demonstrations, The Local Produce Market will feature more than 50 tradestands selling locally produced products and produce. All tradestands are members of Hampshire Fare, New Forest Marque of Hampshire Farmers Markets. The Local Produce Market will also feature a food court where visitors can enjoy some locally produced food and drink.

Sophie Stannett, Marketing Co-ordinator says “Jane is going to be a fantastic addition to the cooking demonstration theatre timetable this year. The Local Produce Market is a wonderful celebration of Hampshire’s finest local producers and is certainly a must see section of the Show”
