Superstar chef Jack Stein and Masterchef 2019 winner Irini Tzortzoglou have been signed up to headline the inaugural Truro Food Festival on the weekend of 27 – 29th September 2019.

The pair will headline the Chef’s Theatre presented by St Austell Brewery, and the announcement comes in line with a pledge that the chef line-up at the event will be a 50/50 split of male and female chefs.

Lee Bater, Festival Director, said: “We’re thrilled to have Jack and Irini headlining on our inaugural year and we look forward to announcing the rest of our 50/50 chef line-up very soon. We believe that this is the first time a pledge to welcome equal numbers of female and male chefs to the stage has been made by a Cornish Food Festival and we’re strongly behind that equality of opportunity in our programming.”
