Last Christmas a brand new cookery show for Lincolnshire was introduced, The Lincolnshire Kitchen, which saw local chef Rachel Green travel round the county visiting local suppliers and cooking up a selection of Christmas dishes. Now, Rachel Green and East Coast Pictures are back with all new episodes and all new name, just in time for summer.

The Local Kitchen has been touring the county once again for the region’s best produce and recipes, with a weekend-stop at the historic Lincoln Castle and the 1000 Years Traditional Crafts event.

1000 Years of Traditional Crafts is an annual two-day celebration of Lincolnshire’s heritage. The grounds are filled with traditional craftsmen, from stone masons to iron mongers, and the historic quarter of Lincoln city hosts a selection of food producers. The 2014 event also provided guests with the opportunity to walk around the Castle’s wall and prisons, which are currently undergoing restoration ready for their public opening in 2015. This will be also be the year that the Magna Carta returns to Lincoln Castle.

The Local Kitchen team were here to capture the history, to learn about ancient Lincoln recipes, and to cook up some of their own summer delights.

Here’s a sneak peak of what’s to come.
