Celebrity chef and TV host Peter Sidwell will be at Leekes in Melksham on Saturday and will be serving up his favourite dishes for customers to try.

Leekes is giving customers the chance to see the chef – and host of ITV’s Britain’s Best Bakery - at its Melksham department store in Beanacre Road between noon and 2pm.

He will be preparing his famous delicious dishes in a live cooking demonstration in Leekes’ fully-functioning demonstration kitchen.

And as well as the cookery demonstrations there will be plenty to keep the family entertained with face painters, bouncy castle, food samples from local producers and the Heart Angels along with their ‘Winning Whirlwind’ from midday until 4pm.

Matt Gelder, manager at Leekes Melksham, said: “We are really excited to welcome Peter Sidwell to the store this bank holiday.

"We regularly hold cookery demonstrations in the store but it’s a very special occasion to have a celebrity chef serving up their own recipes – along with tips on how to recreate the dishes at home.”

Leekes aims to offer everything for the home under one roof and has ample free parking for customers.

Other Leekes Home Department Stores can be found in Bilston, Wolverhampton; Coventry; Llantrisant; and Cross Hands in South Wales.
