The Grand, in Clitheroe, proved the ideal setting for Clitheroe Lions Club to stage “An Evening with Lisa Allen”.
Lisa is the Head Chef at Northcote Manor, in Langho, and recent winner of the BBC television “Great British Menu” competition.
She entertained an audience of about 200 people by demonstrating the preparation of a three-course meal and gave numerous tips along the way for variations to the dishes. She also mentioned interesting snippets of her experiences on television.
Craig Bancroft, a director of Northcote Manor, assisted Lisa by providing interesting suggestions and tips for preparing champagne cocktails and also for wines to complement the dishes prepared by Lisa.
Clitheroe Lions Club’s Activities Committee Chairman, Peter Scholes, compered the evening and thanked all who had contributed to the excellent event, which raised in the region of £2,000 for the club’s charities.
