AWARD-winning chef, author and television presenter James Martin will be the celebrity chef at this year's Game Fair in Alcester.

The ITV star will be the face of ‘The James Martin Game Fayre Restaurant’ when the festival comes to the familiar surroundings of Ragley Hall for its 60th anniversary year from July 27to 29.

Located at the heart of The Game Fair near the main arena, the 300-cover restaurant will be a relaxed deli-style experience with a menu created by James which will exploit the distinct and delicious ingredients of the British countryside.

The star of ITV’s Saturday Morning with James Martin series will be mingling with diners and also be on hand to talk about his other projects.

The star said: “It is a great privilege to be appearing as the celebrity chef at such a prestigious event.

"I love the British countryside, a source of so many natural flavours which inspire creativity in the kitchen. I look forward to creating this year’s menu.”

James Gower, managing director of The Game Fair, added: “We are delighted to have secured James as our celebrity chef for our diamond anniversary year. James is a huge name and is sure to be a massive draw, particularly given his enthusiasm for the British countryside and its produce.”
