Polly Guy grew up deep in the Norfolk countryside on a smallholding farm which was self-sufficient.
Polly’s parents were both full time doctors in their own practice so at an early age Polly picked fresh fruit from the trees & vegetables from the garden and prepared supper learning how to make lovely apple jacks and pies. This hobby turned into a necessity given how busy her parents were but it soon became a passion.
Polly studied cookery for 2 years at Norwich City College. Whilst studying she cooked for outside catering functions such as the Queens Jubilee, Newmarket Racecourse & the Princes trust.
Subsequently she worked in several restaurants including working with Michelin Star chef Aaron Patterson at Hambleton Hall, Rutland.
In 2016 Polly was invited onto Come Dine With Me Champion of Champions. Polly won & this led to a cookery program on local TV station Mustard TV and a bit of presenting on BBC Radio Norfolk.
Polly now has a successful chutney & preserves business with an emphasis on creating tasty flavours but using as little salt & sugar as necessary. This success has enabled her to provide help with the local food bank. Polly is passionate about creating nutritious meals & once again cooking is her passion.
Polly appears on Saturday 26th August
Polly's demos will be free to watch and she will be appearing in both the Regional Chef Marquee and at Bolton Market.
