BBC Good Food Show Summer

For mouthwatering aromas from sizzling barbecues and all the best ideas for sensational picnics and sophisticated summer dining, visit the BBC Good Food Show Summer at The NEC from 11-15 June. This summer taste celebration is taking place at the BBC Summer Festival which also incorporates BBC Gardeners' World Live and dedicated Good Homes and Countryfile magazine areas, as well as a brand new central feature bringing a sustainable future to life. With an emphasis on alfresco dining and light, seductive summer tastes, highlights at the BBC Good Food Show Summer will include the Summer Kitchen.

Here, top celebrity chefs including Gordon Ramsay, James Martin, Lesley Waters, Simon Rimmer and the Hairy Bikers will be entertaining audiences and inspiring them with great ideas for summer food. Also appearing in the Summer Kitchen will be the Good Food magazine team, ready to share their wealth of cookery experience and know-how with visitors.

Great tasting home produced food will be a strong theme at the show with the Great British Food Festival and Henrietta Green's Foodlovers Fair showcasing some of the best produce from this country. Brand new at this year's show will be Slow Food Tasting Workshops which will aim to show visitors that the taste of regional food is superior to fast food and imported food and should be enjoyed and protected. Those visitors who are already convinced about the merits of locally produced food will be interested in the Grow Your Own stage in BBC Gardeners' World Live where top tips will be given for growing your way to five a day.

Elsewhere in the show will be a special section dedicated to Picnic Must Haves giving visitors plenty of ideas and inspiration for that special picnic. A visit to Drinks, the Fine Wine and Spirits Show will help with the decision about whether to take along a cool, crisp white wine or a lively, exciting cocktail. Alternatively, Beers of the World Live which takes place at the Summer Festival on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday will offer a massive selection of refreshing beers, perfect for the long, hot summer days.

Visitors will also be able to take a break and experience alfresco dining for themselves in the Dining Experience. Located outside near the spectacular BBC Gardeners' World Live Show Gardens, the Dining Experience will enable visitors to choose taster sized dishes from some of the area's very best gourmet restaurants, including La Becasse and Blenheim House.

A ticket to the BBC Good Food Show Summer allows entry to BBC Gardeners' World Live and all other areas of the BBC Summer Festival. There will be a thought-provoking central feature which will encourage visitors to travel wisely, save resources, shop fairly and save energy wherever they can. The Countryfile magazine area will be inspiring visitors to explore and preserve the great outdoors and themed areas hosted by Good Homes magazine will appeal to all homeowners, including the Fifth Room area which will focus on making the most of conservatories and garden rooms.
