THE nation's favourite baker, Mary Berry, will share 'scrumptious' tips on making the perfect cake at an county food festival.

The former Great British Bake Off star is the star attraction at the Blenheim Palace Food Festival this summer.

Dame Mary will treat fans at the Woodstock stately home to a Q&A session followed by a book signing.

She will be joined from Friday 20th - Sunday 22nd August by Genaro Contaldo, TV chef Dean Edwards, Masterchef Champions Kenny Tutt and Thomas Frake, Bake-Off star Karen Wright and Wholefood Warrior Eva Humphries.

The culinary stars will host cooking demonstrations and talks.

Boss of organisers Fantastic Food Festivals, Angus Chilvers, said: “We’re delighted to return to beautiful Blenheim Palace with another fantastic food festival for all the family. We look forward to welcoming some of the country’s top talented celebrity chefs and experts to the festival kitchen who will be on hand to answer questions and provide some valuable cooking tips.

Oxford Mail:

“Expect a wide variety of high quality and exciting food choices, often unavailable from supermarkets including flaky buttery baked treats, award-winning cheeses, the tastiest international street food and craft beer, artisan gins, cocktails and mocktails to quench your thirst. The Festival will also feature a range of vegan and vegetarian options from organic seasonal fruit and vegetables to mouth-watering ice-cream and even some vegan prosecco.”

To attend the festival you will need a park & garden ticket or annual pass.

Adult tickets are £15, child tickets £6.40, concession tickets £12, and family tickets £36.40.
