Tasty treats will be cooked up in a Preston shopping centre for a little while longer.


The ESSE pop-up cookery school in the Fishergate Centre is to be extended until Sunday 9 August.

Hundreds of people have seen demonstrations from a number of top chefs in the last four weeks.

Pedro Cebrero, head chef of James’ Place, and David Dugdale, head chef at The Emporium in Clitheroe, are the latest foodie names to impress visitors.

Stove manufacturers’ ESSE director Mark Blewitt said: “We wanted to do something completely different to officially launch our latest cooker and have some fun at the same time – and we’ve certainly done that, the response has been absolutely fantastic.

“We’ve been enjoying ourselves so much that we’ve decided to extend the opening so that even more people can see our innovative new cookers, our market leading technology and the talented team of chefs we’ve recruited for the event.

“Professional chefs and home cooks love our range and this has been a chance for people to see what our cookers are all about. It’s also been a tremendous event for all lovers of good food. The dishes the chefs have conjured up have been superb.”

To take part in the cookery schools you need to visit the Esse website and register for the events.
