Foodies were taken on a gastronomic journey at the new two-day Feast festival this weekend.
Masterchef winner Natalie Coleman and Bake Off finalist Kimberley Wilson were among the experts on hand to dish out live demonstrations on the main stage in Mote Park, on Saturday and Sunday.
Compering was home-grown baker Britt Whyatt, a judge for ITV show Britain’s Best Bakery and an official food blogger for Sainsbury’s.
The festival was also chance for local start-ups to showcase their products, including Bearsted based Juice Executive which was set up this year offering cold pressed vegetable and fruit juices.
The debut is thought to have attracted thousands of foodies.
Organiser Luke Bendall, said: “Everyone had a great weekend and most importantly we had the weather for it. The attendance was good on both days but we don’t have the exact numbers yet.
“The highlight has to be the food which was fantastic and the variety that we had to offer.
“It is possible that we will hold it again next year, but maybe consolidated into one day next time.”
