And Cumbria’s own superstar chef Simon Rogan will be bringing his pop-up restaurant back to Cockermouth for the event.

During last year’s show it was announced he had been awarded a second Michelin star.

This year will be the fourth Taste Cumbria event in the town and will take place on September 28/29.

Staged in association with Cumbria Life, as well as cookery demonstrations from Rankin, Zilli and some of the best chefs in Cumbria, there will also be the buzzing Main Street producers’ market with dozens of stalls selling the best of the county’s food and drink, and a host of additional attractions and events which will be revealed in coming weeks.

Rankin, the first chef in Northern Ireland to gain a Michelin star, will headline the celebrity chef stage on the Saturday at its new venue of Christ Church.

Best known as one of the longest-standing and most popular chefs on Ready Steady Cook he has also appeared on Step up to the Plate, Local Food Heroes and Saturday Kitchen.

He will be joined on Saturday by Cumbrian TV chef Peter Sidwell, who has been filming a second series of Britain’s Best Bakery for ITV and runs the Peter Sidwell @ Rheged café and his cookery school near Keswick.

Award-winning chef and restaurateur Aldo Zilli will be appearing on Sunday – four years after appearing at the first Taste Cumbria festival.

This year, the Rogan pop-up restaurant is offering a four-course menu for £60, with an optional £20 matched wine list.

Bookings can be made now at www.tastecumbria.co.uk.

The 2013 Taste Cumbria Food Festival is organised on behalf of Cumbria Tourism and Taste Cumbria by CN Events, in association with Cumbria Life. It is supported by Cumbria Tourism, Allerdale council, and Cockermouth Town Council.
