Masterchef finalist and cookery teacher Andrew Kojima is set to give a culinary master class at Ely’s Eel Festival weekend.

Andrew, a finalist in the 2012 edition of the popular BBC show, will be part of the food and drink festival on Palace Green which will take place on Sunday and Monday, May 4-5.

The event is being supported by G’s Fresh and will see a host of demonstrations from chefs running throughout.

As well as Andrew, demonstrations will also be given by Leah Jensen, head chef of Poets House, in Ely, Corrinne Payet, of French Patisserie Gourmandises, Mark Anstead, of Cambridgeshire Wines School and catering students from Cambridge Regional College.

Andrew said: “Eels evoke emotion and memories. On Monday, May 5, I will demonstrate two dishes with eels, one British, one Japanese and pay homage to these intriguing little fish.”

The Eel Festival will be taking place from May 2-5 and will include the annual Ely Day Parade, a full programme of arena events in Jubilee Gardens including folk music, eel pottery workshops, music and dancing, historical displays and re-enactments.
