12.30 pm Cookery demonstration – Vanessa Scott

Vanessa Scott grew up in rural Norfolk within a large family where her passion for regional foods first developed. “Baking was part of these extraordinary women’s lives, there were always fabulous aromas and delicious foods coming from their kitchens, despite the adversities of war and the need for thrift they were the anchors of a great family life ”, remembers Vanessa. “The skills they had fifty years ago are skills revered today within the more male environs of the celebrity chef. This is the natural way I learned to cook utilising the foods from our back doorstep, fresh foods, packed with flavours and nutrition”.
