Join Abel & Cole’s Recipe Writer, Jassy Davis, for a cooking demonstration all about one of the UK’s springtime stars, asparagus. She’ll be showing how to use every bit of this seasonal crop, turning your unused asparagus stalks into a deliciously nutty Genovese Pesto

Look out for HexClad on the Summer Kitchen as they will be joining us at the show for the first time this summer. Their hybrid cookware will be used by our chefs so you can learn tips and tricks from the professionals to elevate your cooking at home. 

Keep your eyes peeled for Regina XXL Absorb who will be joining us at the show to help us mop up any spillages on the stages in a sustainable fashion. With triple layer technology, each sheet is stronger and more absorbent.
