Gina Carter

I love compering the festival as I have been involved in it since the very first one 17 years ago. I have seen it grow from a tiny festival in the market square on hay bales to a superb national success attracting the top chefs in the country and 100's of producers from Devon and the South West.  I have been lucky to share the stage with the UK's best loved chefs and rising stars of the future.

Gina is the fabulous compare of our Chef Demo tent and has been living in the South Hams for nearly 25 years following an eclectic career in the music business working in recording studios and record companies.  She loves music, travel, film, eating and drinking, driving - has driven across the Sahara in a banger and loves theatre and started treading the boards herself ten years ago and can be seen with the Dartington Playgoers amongst others.  She now spends her days selling superb tailor made safari and beach holidays to Eastern and Southern Africa with Safari & Beach Travel in Kingsbridge and spends a few weeks every year in both Tanzania and Kenya.  She is extremely fond of rose and champagne, so feel free to buy her a glass at any time!
