Howard said: “I love doing the demos and the cake off is great fun, it’s brilliant to see what the public can do.”

Festival director Dan Maycock added: “We’re thrilled to be back at Harewood, it’s a stunning venue and a great location for the food festival. This year we have some great new chef demos, a new interactive BBQ stage, a gift and craft marquee and new bands for the public to enjoy.”
