His passion for good food made him the perfect choice to co-host BBC MasterChef and now the nation’s most famous greengrocer is headlining Bishop Auckland Food Festival. 

Gregg Wallace

Known for his extensive culinary knowledge and unapologetic sweet tooth, Gregg has co-presented BBC MasterChef since 2005. Gregg Wallace is the first of the celebrity chefs and food personalities attending the Bishop Auckland Food Festival to be revealed ahead of its return on Saturday 13 April and Sunday 14 April.

“I’m very much looking forward to my visit,” said Gregg. “Meeting new people, discovering their passion for food and sampling local specialities is a real treat."

 Gregg will share some behind the scenes gossip while cooking up a variety of delicious dishes in Bishop Auckland Town Hall on Sunday, 14 April at 11am and 2pm. Tickets for the demonstration cost £10 or £15 for a VIP pass, which includes priority seating and a meet and greet opportunity.
