Derbyshire Food and Drink Fair – eat your heart out!

More than 11,000 people visited Derbyshire Food and Drink Fair at the weekend.

The event – which is celebrating its 10th anniversary – was held in the picturesque grounds of Hardwick Hall in the north of the county.

Derbyshire County Council launched the event ten years ago to help local traders and producers promote their goods and boost the county’s economy.

The event boasted more than 100 food and drink stalls selling everything from cheese, wine and beer to pickles, cakes and biscuits.

Other attractions included cookery demonstrations, art and craft displays, live music, street theatre and children’s entertainment.

On Saturday 21 May, visitors enjoyed cookery demonstrations by Simon Rimmer, the resident chef on BBC2’s Something for the Weekend, and learnt how to cook in the great outdoors with Martin Dorey from the BBC2 series One Man and his Campervan.

On Sunday 22 May Dean Edwards from ITV’s Daybreak showed off his culinary skills to visitors.
