CULINARY wizard, Heston Blumenthal is coming to Chesterfield next week to film his latest TV show on sweet treats.

He is travelling the town in a bright pink taxi, trying to get people talking about weird and wacky sweets. He is inviting people to have a go at creating a flavour combination to present to him at his Sweetshop audtions on Monday, June 26.

Heston wants anyone and everyone who has an idea to bring their pictures, designs, models and edible foodstuffs along with them to show him.

Whether it be a marshmallow with essence of humbug and buttered toast, or a cheese and jam flavoured bonbon covered in crisps – Heston needs YOU!

If you want to be involved and would like to have a go at either designing something, making a model or actually making something for Heston to eat, email hestonsbigidea@betty.co.uk with SWEET SHOP AUDITIONS in the subject line.

The time and location of the auditions will be revealed to all that apply.
