Organisers of the Chef Demo Stage

Laura Field and Kim Somauroo organise and book all the chefs taking part across the St. Ives Food and Drink Festival weekend.

Laura Field is a food photographer and food stylist and Kim Somauroo is a home economist and private chef.

Since graduating at Tante Marie Culinary Academy in 2007, they have collaborated on many exciting projects. Through their work at high profile food festivals such as ‘Jamie Oliver’s Big Feastival’ and ‘Taste of London’, they have become friends with lots of the UK’s leading chefs, and have asked some of them to appear at the St. Ives Food and Drink Festival.
