Paul and Ryan take to the stage at the NEC

Shrewsbury Town were represented at the BBC Good Food and Gardeners World Show at Birmingham NEC.
The club's executive head chef Paul Crowe and sous chef Ryan Leonard took to the stage for a cookery exhibition.
They took the chance to tell the big crowds they attracted about the kitchen garden and orchard they have developed on site at the Greenhous Meadow by the training pitch.
"We were demonstrating on the Kitchen Garden stage hosted by BBC Radio Four's Gardeners Question Time presenter Matt Biggs and it was a link between the club and Attingham Park/National Trust," said Paul.
"The theme of the demonstration was around locally sourced ingredients, cooking with seasonal ingredients, and how easy it is to grow your own ingredients.
"I spoke about our kitchen garden and orchard here at the club. 
"The kitchen garden theatre was packed out both days with standing room only and there was a lot of interest in the work we are dong here at the club, especially with our kitchen garden."
Paul and Ryan were in good company as the other cookery demonstrations on the kitchen garden stage were from high profile chefs Tom Kitchen, Phil Vickery, Theo Randall and Glynn Purnell.
There were also gardening demonstrations by Monty Don, Carol Klein and Joe Swift.

Paul added: "It was a chance for us to talk about the great produce we have here in Shropshire and how we work closely with local food producers to source the best ingredients to use on all our menus here at the football club."

You can enjoy the award winning food at Shrewsbury Football Club with bar lunches available from Monday to Friday between noon and 3pm.
Bookings are also taken for Sunday lunch each week.
The club also boasts excellent hospitality facilities to cater for any occasion from corporate meetings to banquets and private dinners.
