Former Masterchef winner Dhruv Baker announced for Nantwich and South Cheshire Show


A former Masterchef winner will be bringing some added spice to this year’s Nantwich and South Cheshire Show.

Dhruv Baker, who was crowned champion of the popular BBC cooking series in 2010, will appear on the Dairy Crest stand in the Nantwich International Cheese Awards arena at the show at Dorfold Park on July 27.

He joins fellow top chefs James Martin and Gino D’Acampo at the event, which is set to attract an enthusiastic crowd of around 32,000 people.

The 35-year-old combines his Mexican and Indian heritage to create his own culinary wonders from a love of many ingredients, especially spices.

Dhruv claims Gordon Ramsey influenced him hugely through his passion and talent and states that as a young graduate he purchased all Ramsey’s books.

Adrian Lawrence, show secretary, said: “We are delighted to welcome Dhruv to the Nantwich and South Cheshire Show for the first time.

“We now have a trio of culinary masters ready to share their cooking secrets with our many visitors.

“Tickets are selling fast and I urge people to buy in advance to ensure they get the discounted rate.”

To win Masterchef, Dhruv served up an impressive three-course meal starting with lobster tail poached in saffron and ginger, served with a celeriac puree on a bed of blanched fennel with a buerre noisette foam.

His main consisted of venison served alongside potato, brunoise and fenugreek crust, carrot and cumin puree under sugar glazed carrots, confit chestnuts, and was finished with a venison jus.

For his third course he served a trio of desserts: pear poached in sauterne and star anise, masala chi ice-cream, and finally a chocolate truffle topped with pistachio.

Dhruv will be on hand to sign autographs, as will the other celebrities appearing at the show, which runs from 8am-8pm.

Former Coronation Street actor Sean Wilson, who played Martin Platt, will be enjoying his third successive year at the event with his Saddleworth Cheese Company.

Advance tickets are £13 (adults), £9 (senior citizens) £4 (juniors), £35 (family). Call 01270 537359 to order, entrance will be dearer on the day.
