Ashburton Food and Drink Festival

The event was organised by the Ashburton Festival Association, with support from the Ashburton Cookery School, and brought together the town's delis, cafes, restaurants, butchers, bakers and fishmongers, as well as a wide range of producers. We had an amazing day and had sold out of our stock my lunch time! A record day for us beating Exeter Food Festival and Devon County Show!

Ashburton in South Devon celebrated local produce in all its forms last Saturday, as well-known foodies cooked up a storm. Among the celebrities were Chris and James Tanner and James Knight-Pacheco, from the BBC's The Restaurant and Out of the Frying Pan. He went head-to-head with past Masterchef winner Dhruv Baker in one of a series of cooking challenges. And of course Darrin Hosegrove from Ashburton Cookery School was there aswell. Lets hope it's an annual event.

A big 'thank you' to everyone involved for putting on such a fantastic event.
