Isle of Wight education and heritage centres to be opened by TV chef

TV chef Clarissa Dickson Wright is set to open new education and heritage centres on the Isle of Wight.

The celebrity cook will be heading to The Garlic Farm Shop and Cafe in Newchurch to cut the ribbon on the new facilities.

Speaking about the booking of the star, a spokeswoman for the venue stated that she is "delighted" to be welcoming Dickson Wright to the location.

"The Education and Heritage Centres have been added to the existing facilities at The Garlic Farm to enhance our visitors' experiences whilst they are with us," she told VentnorBlog.

Tourists on their Isle of Wight holidays will get the chance to learn all about the history of garlic at the heritage centre, while an interactive experience suitable for both adults and children is to be set up at the education part of the facility.

Dickson Wright is arguably best known for her television appearances, but has also published books such as Spilling the Beans, Clarissa's Comfort Food, Rifling Through My Drawers and Two Fat Ladies: Full Throttle.
