Ludlow Food Festival

The Original Festival for Food and Drink Lovers

Shropshire Lad - Adam Purnell

Where: Castle Outer Bailey

FIRE KITCHEN STAGE - with DJ BBQ as compere

Adam is what it says on the tin - a lad, from Shropshire, with a passion for cooking, fishing, and this beautiful county full of amazing ingredients and produce. He is a self-taught home cook who has never set foot in a professional kitchen, but aims to create innovative, inspiring dishes that are exciting and accessible.

By day he is a Youth and Community worker, and often shares his passion for cooking with the young people that he works with. Adam feels that food is an amazing tool to utilise when building relationships and bringing communities together and so he utilises his skills and enthusiasm at every opportunity.

Adam will be bringing a passion for outdoor cooking along to Ludlow and we're looking forward to welcoming him to the Fire Kitchen Stage, sponsored by Kadai Firebowls.
