Go Gareth!

I don't usually schedule blog posts to appear at 4:30 am on a Friday morning, but this Friday morning is like no other.  You see whilst we're all happily snuggled up in bed catching the last few hours of precious sleep before a busy day ahead, local chef Gareth Kyle is setting up camp at Grey's  Monument in the centre of Newcastle ready to begin his 41 hour cooking demonstration as part of the Eat Festival.

In an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the world's longest Chef Demonstration, Gareth will be demonstrating over 100 dishes and providing live commentary.

So if you find yourselves in Toon today or tomorrow please do pop along to support Gareth.  Also if you're very lucky you might find you get to sample some of his lovely food as the rule book states that everything needs to be eaten!

If you're comfy sitting indoors then you can also watch Gareth live using the special "Gareth Cam" here and don't forget to tweet your support using #GoGareth

Gareth has invited me and a few other local North East bloggers to take over the Go Gareth website and provide official live commentary on his record attempt.   I'll be heading down to Monument  tomorrow to blog live from the tent so make sure you click here to catch me and the other bloggers letting you know all that's going on as Gareth attempts to break the record!

You can read more about the event on my blog next week and find out if Gareth managed to complete his challenge.

Wishing you the best of luck Gareth!
