Top chefs came to Windsor Racecourse this weekend for the British Food Festival.

The festival, which ran over Saturday and Sunday, featured 40 food stalls, wine tasting workshops and cooking demonstrations, and attracted more than 1,000 people.

Chefs included Adam Simmonds, Andre Garrett and David Wilby, who impressed guests with their recipes and techniques.

Paul Brennan, organiser of the event, said: “We wanted to create an event which was relaxed in a nice setting, where families can come down for the day and enjoy some of the food.

"We have outdoor seating as well as a jazz band to keep people interested during the day and local stalls as well as stalls from across the country.

"We chose Windsor Racecourse because we wanted a high-quality venue, but next year the event will be much bigger and we could have five or six different locations.

"Every stallholder has told me they've had a great reaction and a lot of people have been stopping and chatting to them, which you don't always find with bigger events."
