Yorkshire chef launches first cookery book with a demo at Bradford garden centre

A Yorkshire born chef whose cookery is inspired by a global catering career will be at Tong Garden Centre next week for a demo and book signing.


Ali Bilton, who has worked in private catering and restaurants in London, Spain and Hong Kong, will use produce from the Food Hall at Tong to create recipes from her book, Ali Bilton cooks…her favourites at the Tong Lane centre on 4th December.


Mrs Bilton, private chef and head tutor at the multi award winning Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School, was inspired to write the book to bring together a selection of family favourites and recipes that evoke memories of the places she has lived.


The self-published book includes over 60 recipes and features recollections and photos from her life, including a touching foreword dating back 20 years from her then seven year old son, Charlie: "Mum is the greatest cook ever, even better than Jamie Oliver …. When I'm older I want to work for mum so that I can serve her gorgeous food"


Of the book, Tong's Head of Marketing, Jo Dales said: "This is a delightful, yet practical cookery book that gives a lovely insight into Ali the chef and Ali the person.


"Like us, Ali champions the use of Yorkshire produce and we're really looking forward to welcoming her to Tong."


The demo is free and takes place between 10.30am and 3.30pm in the Food Hall at Tong Garden Centre.
