There was something for all the family, with food tasters, live music and face painting and activities for children.
In the main marquee, talented cooks from across East Devon serving up tasty dishes for the crowd to try.
Among those demonstrating were students from The King’s School, past and present, as well as South African chef Bruce Cole and Ottery businessman Christopher Piper.
