Customers at Lincolnshire Co-op’s Collingham Food Store in Nottinghamshire will get a cracking treat on Friday 28 June when celebrity chef Rachel Green cooks up tasty dishes for shoppers using LJ Fairburn & Son’s award-winning British Blue® Eggs.

Rachel will be at the High Street store between 11am and 4pm cooking a variety of recipes all made using the delicious pastel blue eggs, with a vibrant golden yolk, which are part of Lincolnshire Co-op’s Love Local range. Laid by free range hens, fed a bespoke natural diet containing extracts from brightly coloured flowers, on Fairburn’s farms less than 50 miles away from Collingham, British Blue® Eggs were described as a ‘perfect egg’ when they won a sought-after two star Great Taste Award.

Dishes being served to customers will include scrambled eggs with smoked salmon salsa, smoked haddock kedgeree, pancakes, Turkish baked eggs and corned beef hash. Rachel is a well-known chef, author, TV presenter and food campaigner, and she works closely with Alford-based Fairburn’s, developing mouth-watering recipes and demonstrating to customers.

Sarah Louise Fairburn, Brand and Sales Director for LJ Fairburn, said: “If you love good food and live near Collingham then you are in for a real treat as Rachel really knows how to create the most delicious dishes using our tasty British Blue® Eggs. We love getting out into our local area and meeting customers, and what better way than this!”

Collingham Food Store is one of 11 Lincolnshire Co-op stores stocking Fairburn’s British Blue® Eggs which are laid by Fairburn’s British Blue® hens, a unique breed, developed, hatched and reared in Alford. For every pack of the eggs sold, a donation is made to the new Lincolnshire Coastal Country Park. 

Lincolnshire Co-op’s Category Manager Judy Lyon said: “We’re very excited to welcome Rachel Green back to cook up a storm with delicious, local goods at our Collingham Food Store.  Our Love Local range is our way of celebrating amazing products and showcasing some of the best food and drink around our trading area, and these British Blue eggs from L J Fairburn & Son have been a fantastic addition to the range.”
