Chef Brian Mellor

Chef event shows off menu of new Tattenhall homes

Homebuyers have been gleaning some top cookery tips from an award-winning chef, sipping champagne and indulging in free ice cream thanks to housebuilder Redrow.

Brian Mellor - a Master Chef of Great Britain and former head chef at the BBC and executive chef at Granada TV - was at the housebuilder’s Chestnut Grange development in Tattenhall conducting cookery demonstrations and providing tasty treats for visitors to sample.

Would-be homebuyers were able to feast their eyes on the demonstrations with Brian, who now runs a cookery school in Harthill, and for a sweet dessert, tempting additions were courtesy of the Ice Cream Farm at Cheshire Farm.

Entertainment for the younger ones was provided by a face painter and balloon modeller while the adults could have a look around the impressive five-bedroom ‘Marlborough’ showhome.
Jason Newton, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW) said: “Tattenhall is a fabulous place to set up home and it was great to be able to show off the Chestnut Grange lifestyle to potential buyers and treat our visitors to some fabulous food and drink at the same time. There were some fantastic looking faces and Brian was able to show off the showhome kitchen, which is ideal for entertaining, to a tee!
“While finding out more about various cookery techniques, buyers were able to whet their appetite for the menu of new family homes we have on offer here.”
The tempting selection of homes includes The Welwyn, complete with integral double garage, and The Henley with its 36ft long family, dining and kitchen area and generously-sized bedrooms. Current prices start from £407,995 for a four-bedroom Sunningdale.

For those who couldn’t make the event but would still like to find out more about the homes on offer, the fully-furnished showhome is open Thursday to Sunday 10am until 5.30pm and on Mondays 11am until 5.30pm.

Offering the best of both worlds, because of its fantastic city access and Cheshire countryside surroundings, the Tattenhall venture is located within easy walking distance to the village centre with its array of local amenities.
