Tickling tastebuds

This year's Derbyshire Food and Drink Fair has been hailed a success after 11,000 people visited the event over the bank holiday weekend.

Celebrity chef Brian Turner and county council chair Councillor Joyce Sanders opened the fair and also launched the Derbyshire Food Festival.
Producers from across the county offered free samples to taste meanwhile local chefs gave demonstrations, tips and advice.

Celebrity chef Brian Turner gave a number of demonstrations over the two days and also did photo signing sessions for the crowds that flocked to see him.

Dozens of local restaurants, cafes, shops and local food producers across the county are now running food festival events including taste-testing sessions, cookery demonstrations, tours, competitions and talks, as well as promoting locally-sourced menus.
Derbyshire County Council tourism officer Steph Walsh said: "Every year the food and drink fair gets better and better and attracts a huge number of visitors from far and wide.
"The fair is a great way for local producers to showcase their products and attract new customers and the festival gives people the chance to go out and try something new."
