Appetites whetted at Warwick Racecourse season opener

RACE-GOERS’ appetites will be whetted in Warwick.

Warwick Racecourse’s Heart of England Two Day Race Meeting also features the Warwickshire Food and Drink Showcase giving local producers the chance to share their finest wares with guests in the paddock.

Michelin-starred chef Adam Bennett will be one of the stars of the show on Tuesday September 24 – demonstrating his mastery of the culinary arts to racegoers and foodies.

Adam has been chef director at The Cross in Kenilworth for six years and has worked at top hotels and restaurants in London and Paris.

He will give a demonstration as well as hold a questions and answer session with the producers and suppliers – and is looking to sample some of the local produce on offer.

He said: “This is my first time ever at Warwick Racecourse, so to have that combined with a food and drink event celebrating Warwickshire is great.

“I will be hoping to catch some racing as well as sampling what is on offer. We like to use local suppliers so will I certainly be on the look out for some potential partners from the producers on show.”

The showcase, hosted by Warwickshire County Council, will allow members of the public and commercial buyers to enjoy cooking demonstrations from leading local chefs and sample the marvellous tastes created by the best local food and beverage producers, all against the backdrop of the first major race meeting of the season.

The showcase will be open to race-goers from 1pm, with the first race of the day set to get underway at 2.10pm.

Andre Klein, General Manager at Warwick Racecourse, said: “We pride ourselves on the standard of food and drink we provide on race days, but playing host to the Warwickshire Food and Drink Showcase will add some real variety.”
