TOP chef Tim Bilton is offering to cook you a feast – if you supply him with your homegrown fruit and vegetables.

Tim, who owns The Spiced Pear restaurant, at Hepworth, has teamed up with the National Allotment Society to prepare a community harvest festival feast at his restaurant, on September 8.

The former BBC Great British Menu contestant will create a feast made from fruit and vegetables grown on 1,000 allotments across Kirklees.

Tim, who trained under Raymond Blanc, said: “Local produce and growing your own has always been a personal passion of mine and I have loved working on my plot at The Spiced Pear.

“I want to celebrate and promote the joys of growing your own and spread the allotment agenda.

“So, whether you want to show off your ravishing radishes, beautiful broad beans or stunning celeriac – we’d be delighted if you got involved and came to our party.”

Produce can be dropped off at The Spiced Pear, Sheffield Road (01484 683 775).
