BBC Good Food Show

The Year of Food and Drink in 2016 saw the first visit to Northern Ireland by the BBC Good Food Show.  


Top chefs including Paul Hollywood, James Martin, the Hairy Bikers, John Torode and homegrown talent Paul Rankin all visited Belfast over a weekend in October to cook regional and seasonal dishes live in the Supertheatre using local ingredients.

In the food-loving city of Belfast this exciting new event presented some of the nation's favourite chefs and the region’s very best producers of food and drink.

With lots of opportunities to sample and find out more about the produce and the destinations they derive from, this was a perfect chance to go along and discover new tasty delights.


After a roaring success in 2016, the BBC Good Food Show returns again in November 2017. This is a must-do in every food-lover's calendar and an event not to be missed. You can taste your way around Northern Ireland and discover new flavours, while being inspired by iconic chefs and local heroes.

With lots of exciting names such as The Hairy Bikers, John Torode and Nadiya Hussain confirmed, find out more about the other exciting things taking place over this culinary weekend here.
