The year's food fair at The Donkey Sanctuary focused on inspiring children to get cooking.

Youngsters had the opportunity to bring out their inner foodies and take part in workshops run by staff and students from the King's School, in Ottery.

They also had chance to create their own pizza for lunch in the KidsZone.

A line-up of chefs provided live cookery demonstrations throughout the day, giving visitors the chance to sample some of their creations, as well as learn some new ideas to try at home.
