Chef patron at the extraordinary two Michelin-starred Hand & Flowers pub in Marlow, Tom is a great character with amazing presence, obvious warmth and an infectious laugh. The BBC2 series Proper Pub Food became a huge overnight success with excellent ratings and as a result Tom’s fan base has been growing weekly with the accompanying book of the same title became a best seller. Prior to having his own TV show, Tom appeared on shows such as Market Kitchen, MasterChef the Professionals, Saturday Kitchen and has competed and won the main course twice on BBC2’s Great British Menu. No-one else has ever won twice! Shropshire Horticultural Society Chairwoman Donna Hamer said: “Having Tom Kerridge at the 2014 Flower Show continues our aim of bringing top chefs to Shrewsbury, he is a great character and no doubt his enthusiasm for good food and his great personality will be a huge success in the Foodhall.” This year’s Shrewsbury Flower Show will take place on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th August.
