CELEBRITY chef Jean Christophe Novelli performed his art at The Theatre Kitchen at The Piazze, in Wigan Life Centre as part of the 2012 Wigan’s Food & Drink Festival.
The TV star, dubbed ‘Mr Romance’ prepared one of his signature dishes before hosting a special evening of fine dining at Rigalettos Restaurant at the DW Stadium, where guests were treated to a love-themed four-course meal.
Talking about his time in Wigan, he said: “I had a great night, I feel privileged to have been asked to come to Wigan.
“It was like being invited to a party, everything went so well and I really enjoyed mixing with the Wigan people.
“I was over the moon that around 140 people showed up to my demonstration at the Kitchen Theatre. I couldn’t believe it, it was quite a dull and windy day yet people turned out to see me and I am very grateful.”
Look out for a Food of Love night Society picture special in next week’s Wigan Observer.
