Taste Cheshire, the private members organisation which promotes the independent food and drink businesses of Cheshire, has appointed Emma Shawcross as its new development chef.
Taste Cheshire CEO Stephen Wundke said he was delighted that Emma had accepted the position.
“Emma has been at the centre of the food industry in Cheshire for quite some time. She has taught children how to cook through her work with the Academy of Culinary Arts, she has been the brains behind many of the celebrity chefs when they appear on stage and even helped with the production of the hit tv show, Yes Chef.
“Her pedigree of having learnt her trade at the Michelin-starred Chester Grosvenor, gives her an unrivalled knowledge of the industry at all levels and she is a really important addition to our team.”
Emma’s first task is to produce fortnightly recipes for the Taste Cheshire website using local ingredients as their base, and showing readers just how easy it is to prepare home cooked meals to restaurant standard.
She will also be on duty at the Royal Cheshire County Show where Taste Cheshire will be offering free, adult and children’s cooking classes. (Read more, here.)
Emma commented: “I have been so impressed with the work that Taste Cheshire has done championing the Cheshire food and drink industry over the last 6 years and to now be a part of that team is a real privilege.”
Taste Cheshire recently celebrated the 18th annual industry awards with over 40,000 votes cast and the company now has plans now to increase the awards in 2019 to include food and drink producers, so it’s not just about the food retailers.
