A CHEF has created a food event in a Lake District town for people to come and try his food.

Joe Bragg, from Ulverston, is brewing the second edition of his new event titled Food and Folk at The Terrace in Brantwood in Coniston where he has been working as a chef for five years.

The event stemmed from an idea he had to get new people to come and try his food while hearing live music.

His first event took place in April starting with a chef’s snack and welcome drink on arrival, followed by a 4-course tasting menu inspired by Folk style and local produce.

"I had 55 seats available and managed to sell out of tickets, I got a flurry of calls on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday leading up to the event in which I had to turn many people down," he said.

"Everyone who came to the event was very happy and I got lots of good feedback.

"The original idea was to do a 'Food &' event in which I could swap out the '&' for something different each time. But, on my first encounter contacting the folk music community, I was inundated with so many nice messages and keen musicians all interested in playing at Brantwood for Food & Folk night."

Joe has been a chef since he was 14 and 'loves' every second of it.

He has worked in pubs, restaurants and hotels such as the Swan Hotel, The Farmers Arms Ulverston and Avanti Capitola.

He said: "The director of Brantwood has full faith in me to create a great menu and great service and that is what is aspire to do. I want to create more evenings and if Food & Folk takes off I have many more ideas up my sleeve."

Food & Folk will have a price of £35 per person and it will take up to 60 guests.
