CHESHIRE chef David Mooney is proud to have appeared at the BBC Good Food Scotland show, in another culinary accolade for the Old Sessions House co-owner.

David, who also co-owns the Lord Binning Pub and Kitchen in Kelsall as well as the new Knutsford eaterie, appeared alongside TV chefs James Martin and the Hairy Bikers at the showcase on October 21.

David was one of 20 food experts to appear at the Glasgow show, and used his ‘Love Food, Hate Waste’ demonstration to cook using the Tatton Brewery’s ‘Sessions’ cask ale, specially commissioned for his Cheshire restaurants.

David said: “The BBC Good Food Show is a wonderful showcase of everything that makes British food the best in the world, and Cheshire, quite rightly, has a reputation at the heart of that for producing quality cuisine.”

The restaurateur has appeared on Granada Tonight more than 200 times, so is no stranger to the spotlight been cast on his food creations.

He said: “At the Lord Binning it’s very important to us that we source our ingredients locally, which is why we were so thrilled when we were recently honoured with the award for ‘Best Use Of Local Produce In A Menu’ at the Chester Food and Drink Awards.

“On a personal level it was great to catch up with Si and Dave from the Hairy Bikers, who I’ve worked with a number of times.

“I swear that the last time we all cooked together we were collectively 20 stones heavier.”
