Chocolate and butterfly cakesAs the new season of The Great British Bake Off rolls onto our TV screens, local chef Chris Coubrough of the Flying Kiwi Inns, is gearing up for some Bake Off judging of his own. This September 17th, Chris is all set to critique the bakes at Age UK Norfolk’s Bake Off themed fundraiser in Old Catton, in support of the charity which supports older people in Norfolk.

Dad-of-two Chris, who originally hails from New Zealand, runs The Crown Hotel and The Ship Hotel in North Norfolk and has worked in top restaurants in Switzerland, London and Suffolk. In 2014 Chris, who previously hosted ITV Anglia’s Coastal Kitchen cookery series, received the Outstanding Achievement Award at the Eastern Daily Press Food and Drink Awards.

And on Saturday 17th September, he’ll be lending his culinary expertise to the hopeful amateur bakers who are signing up to help raise funds for local charity Age UK Norfolk. Chris says 'Baking is the new football, it’s going to be a tough day’s work, but someone’s got to do it!'

The family fun day, sponsored by Dingles Motor Group, encourages the local community to get involved and join in with the baking fun while enjoying the live music, stalls and traditional fete games, all in aid of Age UK Norfolk, a local independent charity which supports older people across the county.

Hilary MacDonald, Chief Executive of Age UK Norfolk said 'We are all very excited about our very own bake off event.  We hope that the local community will join us for what is set to be a fun-filled, jam packed day!'

The Family fun day will be held at Age UK Norfolk, 300 St Faiths Road, Old Catton, Norwich, NR6 7BJ 11am-3pm.
