The BBC Good Food Show is always a date for any foodie’s diary, and this year looks set to be no different.

Jamie Oliver, Michel Roux Jr, Mary Berry, James Martin and many more big names will gather at Olympia London from 14-16 November for the latest edition of the food show, which has now been running for nearly 25 years.

Along with other big names, these stars of food TV will take turns on the interview stage and demo theatres, spilling the beans on their lives in and out of the kitchen, signing books and showing visitors how to create some of their signature recipes. Jamie Oliver will be filming live for his Food Tube channel at the show.

Away from the stages, there’ll be more than 200 food stalls selling their gourmet wares, from cheeses, chutneys, chocolates and cakes to olives, oils and oysters. Sample before you buy, and drop your bags off in a designated area so you don’t have to carry them around all day.

There will also be an extensive wine tasting section, stocked with bottles to sample and buy, as well as talks and guided expert tastings. Plus the Wine Tube Map will lead visitors around different wine ‘lines’ such as red central, white central, revelation and fizz — a brainwave which we particularly like the sound of.

As in previous years, the show will play host to the World Cheese Awards — the largest cheese competition on the planet — with tastings and explanatory cheese tours as well as the opportunity to watch the judging live.

If sampling copious amounts of award-winning cheeses sounds unhealthy, take solace in the Eat Well Pavilion which will serve up all manner of wholefoods, superfoods and free from products as well as offering healthy cooking advice and nutritional guidance.

Don’t let it put you off a demo with top chocolatier Paul A Young or a visit to the wonderfully quaint-sounding Bakes & Cakes Village, though.
