Shropshire Lad becomes TV star

Adam Purnell, also known as The Shropshire Lad, is due to appear in an extraordinary new television show tonight. Channel 4 and Netflix are launching an all-new food competition titled "Crazy Delicious" bringing the audience into a world where almost everything is edible.

Each week three contestants forage for ingredients to create a “fantastical feast", and Adam will appear in the first episode tonight on Channel 4 at 8pm. The show also features three "Food Gods" - chefs Heston Blumenthal, Carla Hall and Niklas Ekstedt, who will judge the feasts.

The six-episode series, presented by comedian and foodie Jayde Adams, is billed as an innovative food competition, set on the world’s first edible set.

Adam said: “It was absolutely awesome to be selected for such a ground-breaking, food-focused TV show, and to have the chance to present my food to three of my chef heroes was incredibly humbling.

“The aim of the show is to inspire Brits who eat the same meal every week to be more inventive and passionate about the meals they are preparing, which is a concept I love. The challenge was to take a commonplace ingredient, such as a carrot, and then create a sensational feast using some extraordinary products, foraged from an enchanted garden. I’m excited to see the final show tonight and I hope I did the Shropshire food scene justice!”

Adam has lots of events lined up for 2020, including hosting the BBQ stage at the Shrewsbury Food Festival in June, and a demo at Ludlow Food Festival. He is also due to be announcing dates for his fire food feasts soon which he hosts around the county.
