Michelin star chef Galton Blackiston and South West Norfolk MP Liz Truss will be at Lynn’s Hardwick Tesco next week to celebrate the sale in store of locally grown potatoes.

The Norfolk Peer potatoes have been grown at Swaffham by Heygate Farm and are only available between June and September.

They will be sold at Tesco stores throughout East Anglia during the season.

On Friday, July 1, a team from Heygate Farm will be in store to meet customers, hand out samples and share recipe ideas.

Galton Blackiston, from Morston Hall, will be on hand to cook up dishes for customers to sample.

Ms Truss, who is Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, will be making an appearance to support the event, which will be held in the foyer from 10am-2pm.
