Ludlow Food Festival

The Original Festival for Food and Drink Lovers

Rachel Green

Where: Castle Outer Bailey

Rachel isn’t just an award-winning chef, local food campaigner, food stylist, TV celebrity (four TV series) and author (Making The Most of The Great British Sausage, the Chatsworth Cookery Book); she insists that food production is in her blood.

Her family have been farming in Lincolnshire for 14 generations. Rachel’s mother is a brilliant cook and her grandmother before that. Rachel picked up her first kitchen utensil when she was little more than a toddler, and when she wasn’t experimenting in the kitchen, she was out lambing the ewes, shooting game or skinning a deer.

Rachel believes in getting stuck into cooking - proper, grass-roots cooking. She slates mass-produced food and avoids anything that involves masses of food miles. ‘Microwave’ is a dirty word, as is fast-food, although sausage-lover Rachel insists that Lincolnshire sausages rustled up in a skillet are the best convenience food ever.
