This month’s EDF Energy Ideal Home Show is bringing top names from across Britain’s culinary scene to pass on their know-how to visitors.

Raymond Blanc, Aldo Zilli, Rustie Lee, Sophie Grigson and Cyrus Todiwala are just some of the creative masterminds appearing at the Chef Kitchen Theatre.

An interactive experience, the Chef Kitchen Theatre will host cooking demonstrations, Q&A sessions and book signings with your favourite chefs.

Keeping in line with the themes of this year’s show, recipes using seasonal and local produce will inspire visitors to make easy-to-recreate meals for entertaining at home as well as quick family meals that won’t break the purse strings.

Visitors can plan their visit to the Chef Kitchen Theatre by clicking onto idealhomeshow.co.uk to see when their favourite chef will be appearing.

In addition, the culinary master-class can start early with virtual demonstrations and the chef’s personal recipes already appearing on the website.

The show is renowned as the home of great ideas and has seen the launch of many home innovations in its 101 year history such as the microwave, the fridge and the vacuum cleaner.

The tradition of launching brand new ideas and products to the public is maintained through the show’s annual Innovation Nation Awards, which showcase the work of emerging talent from Britain’s top design schools and now encourage amateur entries from the public.

Also at the show this year will be Alison Cork and Bargain Hunter Live. Alison is a respected TV presenter on shows such as 60 Minute Makeover and Don’t Move, Improve! In addition, she writes for The Daily Telegraph and Evening Standard.

Bargain Hunter Live is the culmination of Alison’s years of trawling the UK’s back streets and warehouses in search of the best quality products at unbeatable prices.

Prices for all of the Bargain Hunter Live products will be exclusive to the show, unavailable elsewhere and up to 75 per cent less than you would pay on the high street.

Kitchens, bathrooms, beds, dining tables, sofas, shutters and accessories are just some of the many products that will be on show.

The EDF Energy Ideal Home Show 2009 runs from March 20 to April 13 at Earls Court London.

New for 2009, opening hours will be from 11am to 9pm on weekdays and 10am to 6pm at the weekend.

To keep in line with the money-saving objectives of the show, ticket prices will stay the same for the third year running, costing £14 on weekdays and £16 on weekends.

To make the most of the extended evening programming and events, a reduced ticket price of £5 will be available after 5pm on any day of the week.
