Nutter And Owen-Brown Have A Fight In The Square

Friday 28 September: Food ruck in Albert Square

Published on September 27th 2012.

Nutter And Owen-Brown Have A Fight In The Square

TWO of Greater Manchester ’s best-known chefs are getting ready to rumble as they prepare to be pitted against each other in a ‘Proper Local Food Cook Off’ as part of this year’s Food and Drink Festival. 

In the red corner will be Andrew Nutter of Nutter’s in Rochdale , and in the blue corner, Robert Owen Brown of the Mark Addy in the city centre (ok, technically Salford).

Matched pound for pound in their love for local sustainable food, the two will take to the stage in Albert Square on 28 September and fight to produce the best dish from a selection of locally produced ingredients. 

The ingredients will be supplied by Greater Manchester rural producers who are showcasing their wares throughout the day as part of Visit Manchester’s ‘Proper Local Food Day’.

The event aims to celebrate the food and drink producers that Greater Manchester has to offer. Included on the day will be sausages from Bobby’s Bangers in Oldham, Bury Black Pudding, Chocolate from Ramsbottom’s Chocolate Café, Dunham Massey Apple Juice and award winning pork pies from Bradley’s Bakery in Ashton Under Lyne. 

Paul Simpson from Visit Manchester adds: “We have a plethora of impressive producers within the boroughs of Greater Manchester and this event allows us to showcase them to the foodies from across the region that will be visiting the festival.”

It also allows the impressive chefs to let fly in an putburst of spontaneous inspiration to fire up the tastebuds of onlookers. 

Proper Local Food Cook Off. 28 September from 12pm on Albert Square.
