Aldo Zilli cooks up campsite delights

Italian-born Aldo will be showing how easy it is to cook a Sunday Roast on the BBQ at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show

TV chef and passionate Italian foodie Aldo Zilli will be joining the celebrity line-up at the 2016 Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show. Zilli, who is a familiar face on TV, will be bringing his passion for cooking to the Birmingham NEC on Sunday the 28 February.

Founder and chef-patron of Signor Zilli, Zilli Green, Zilli Café and Zilli Bar, Aldo is known for transforming the Soho Italian restaurant scene and has established himself as one of the country’s best known and loved celebrity chefs. In March 2012 Aldo decided to hang up the chef's whites and embark on other ventures including becoming executive consultant chef to San Carlo Group and appearing on an array of TV programs.

Aldo will be creating three meals including a "Sunday Roast on the BBQ" in the Discovery Theatre, demonstrating how easy it is to create flavourful dishes from the comfort of your leisure vehicle or pitch site whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner.

He said: “Cooking is all about having fun whether at home or on your travels. I am looking forward to sharing my tips at the show with the public.”

Half the fun on a camping and caravanning holiday is the cooking and at the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show you can learn how to cook up some simple yet tasty dishes. Joining Zilli as part of the celebrity chef line-up is Michelin star chef Glynn Purnell.

The UK caravan industry is worth in excess of £6 billion to the economy and almost half (44%) of Britons who go on a camping holiday tend to eat out whilst they’re away and 28% say they're bored of cooking on a camping stove. 1 Our special guest chefs are on a mission to show that cooking can offer endless possibilities with the right know-how.

This event is not all about cooking though and visitors can enjoy browsing 350 exhibitor stands, exclusive deals, FREE caravan towing and motorhome manoeuvring lessons, a new glamping village, new product launches and exhibitions from the leading brands in the industry.
