 Among the highlights of a delicious three-course menu was a dazzling quartet of fairground attraction desserts as well as masala popcorn and honeycomb lollypop!

Graham, Sous Chef at the Michelin Bib Gourmand and Taste Lancashire Highest Quality Assured restaurant, took over the kitchen as part of the tourist board's prestigious young chef initiative which provides them with the opportunity to take over the running of their restaurant for one night.
