Next, Londoners who like their fine wines can get to The Wine Show (Olympia, 12-14 November), where there’ll be ample tasting sessions and learn from pros like Tim Atkin and Oz Clarke. Wine Show tickets also give you entry into Masterchef Live too, which feature’s this year’s Celebrity Masterchef winner Lisa Faulkner and Masterchef winner Dhruv Baker.
And finally, we have the Good Food Show Winter, taking place in Birmingham (at the NEC, from 24-28 November) – it’s always nice to see something like this outside of London for a change. This time, the Supertheatre stars Gordon Ramsay, James Martin, Rick Stein and Gary Rhodes and you’ll also get the chance to take part in a recreation of Masterchef to see if you have what it takes to survive the kitchen.
