Masterchef presenter Gregg Wallace has joined forces with Cassis head chef Steven Smith for a second time to host an evening celebrating the best of Lancashire`s produce. The £45 gourmet dinner for 50 guests at the restaurant at Stanley House Hotel in Mellor will take place tomorrow (Saturday June 6) night and will include commentary from Gregg followed by a Q&A session.
