Food fans in for a tasty treat at annual Foodfest this Sunday.

CELEBRITY chef Michael Caines will be among a host of top chefs demonstrating their skills at the fifth annual North Devon Foodfest, taking place in Barnstaple on Sunday.

The Michelin-starred Gidleigh Park chef will be on stage from 12.15pm as part of an action-packed programme in the pannier market that promises to satisfy the appetite of even the most discerning of food fans.

The event, from 10.30am to 3.30pm, will showcase the finest local produce from across North Devon and Exmoor, with around 80 exhibitors offering everything from cheese, artisan bread, ciders and ales to local meats, fresh produce and fish.

Visitors will also be able to find out about local fish landed in Ilfracombe, Bideford, Appledore and Clovelly, and be offered the chance to win a hamper full of local produce worth £250.

Live Music will be provided by a host of top local talent including Braunton teenager Ellie Campbell.
