William Sitwell

Masterchef judge and renowned food writer William Sitwell will be talking at the festival.

Masterchef judge William Sitwell has joined the stellar cast of foodies taking part in the very first Northampton Winter Food Festival.

Sitwell, who edits Waitrose Kitchen, will talk about the prime-time cookery TV show, life as a food critic and his latest book ‘Eggs or Anarchy’.

He joins a line up which already includes Paris House chef Phil Fanning, Bake Off legend Howard Middleton and Masterchef semi-finalist Jen Charlton.

After speaking, Sitwell will stay briefly to sign copies of his new book, which reveals the untold story of Lord Woolton, who fought red tape, the black market and even Churchill to stop Britain from starving during the Second World War.

A passionate foodie who lives in Northamptonshire, he said: “I’m looking forward to being involved. Anything that encourages local food culture should be celebrated.”

Festival organiser Crispin Slee said: “William is a Goliath in his field, highly celebrated and multi award winning. He is a font of knowledge about food and it will be absolutely fascinating to hear him speak at the festival.”

William will be at the Northampton Winter Food Festival on Saturday afternoon.
