The Scottish Caravan & Camping Show has announced TV personality, Martin Dorey from BBC2’s well-known show “One Man and His Campervan”, will be attending this year’s show and demonstrating his unique culinary talents on stage.

The two-day event will take place on Friday 20 and Saturday June 21 at the Thainstone Centre, Inverurie.

The show is the only one of its type to be held north of the central belt and this year expects to attract more than 6,000 visitors.

Martin Dorey, who is based in Cornwall said: “I love Scotland, I’ve had some great times all over the country. I have a great cookery method, inspired by my experience of cooking Arbroath Smokies, which I’d love to show you all.”

Dorey’s ethos is to cook good food simply and added: “If I can make it, so can you. What I’ll be showing you in June, you’ll be able to recreate in your own kitchens, caravans or at the camp fire.”

Martin will conduct three lively interactive sessions during each day of the show, with tasters and stories.

Demonstration times are Friday 12noon, 2pm and 7pm and Saturday 11am, 1pm and 3pm.

Dorey’s recent book “The Camper Van Cookbook - Life on 4 Wheels, cooking on 2 rings” will be the centre piece for the cookery demonstrations and recipes from the book show how good food can be made and enjoyed with limited space and equipment.

Dorey added: “It’s more than just a cook book. It’s also a lifestyle handbook, with lots of ideas for things to do when you are outdoors.

The show’s main sponsors, Dyce Caravans, and tent sponsors, Craigdon Mountain Sports are both thrilled to be welcoming the presenter to the two-day event.

Kenneth Cumming, the sales director of principal sponsors Dyce Caravans, said: “We look forward to meeting Martin at the show and letting him inspire us with caravan and camping cookery ideas”

Tickets for the event are currently online at a discounted price of £5 until Wednesday, June 18, these with further show details can be found on the website along with the show’s Facebook page and Twitter feed.
