Come and see Dean on the Eat & Drink Stage, sponsored by Bosch, at the show on the 14th March.

Dean Edwards friendly persona and family friendly cooking style has made him a firm favourite on ITV’s ‘Lorraine’ since 2010 but he first made his debut on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ in September 2009 where he featured in a weekly cookery slot, creating dishes for the ITV audience. After coming second in BBC’s Masterchef Goes Large in 2006, he sought to change his life radically by leaving his career as a “digger driver” to pursue his love of cooking and food. A stint at the 2 Michelin-starred Midsummer House in Cambridge followed and after which, Dean returned home to Bristol.
