Great Yorkshire Show
We have lived in Harrogate for just over seven years and yesterday we finally made it to the Great Yorkshire Show. Annette and I enjoyed our day out and the weather was really kind to us. Among the attractions was a number of cookery demonstrations. One of the chefs was Tim Cottrill, an 18 year old Church member at Harrogate Baptist. It was amazing to watch him demonstrate how to prepare and cook two separate dishes while giving his audience a running commentary and snippets of good advice. He appeared absolutely cool and relaxed throughout the whole demonstration. I think he has a big future in food if he chooses to go in that direction. Hopefully when he is a famous chef at a top international restaurant he might remember the minister who baptized him!!
During our day we also visited the Yorkshire Church on Show display which was based on the theme of 'the Good Shepherd'.
