The Donkey Sanctuary’s new family food fair will showcase the best produce and talent the region has to offer next Saturday (October 14).

The event promises to be a food-filled day of inspiration, temptation and hands-on activities for the whole family to enjoy.

Throughout the day there will be live cooking demonstrations from a number of fantastic local chefs, providing ideas for more creativity in the kitchen.

For the children, Food is Fun will be running a free cooking activity, where little ones can enjoy making something tasty themselves and who knows, it may even enthuse some budding chefs out there!

There will also be biscuit decorating and face painting, once they’ve enjoyed getting hands on in the kitchen.
