TV chef Tom Kerridge comes to WiltshirePosted on 19th December 2013
Top TV chef Tom Kerridge was in Devizes, Wiltshire on Saturday (15th December) to sign copies of his new book Proper Pub Food at Walter Rose and Sons butchers in Sidmouth Street. Kerridge was welcomed by a huge queue of people waiting to meet the two Michelin star chef.
Both locals and visitors to rural Wiltshire holiday cottages came out to meet the famed chef whose food is renowned for its hearty English nature. Fans arrived as early as an hour before to guarantee meeting Kerridge but not everyone got a chance to buy a copy of the book, as the 200 copies he brought with him to Devizes sold out within the first hour.
Those who missed out on a copy on the day were still able to get a signed edition of the book by preorder, with Kerridge offering to write a special message inside. Of the huge turnout, West Country-born Kerridge said in this article, “It is fantastic to see so many people turning out in Devizes”.
