FOOD lovers were queuing to get into the main event of the Huntingdonshire Food Festival when it opened its doors to the public on Sunday morning.

Food Fest 2007, which was held at Wood Green Animal Shelters in Godmanchester, attracted about 1,500 people whose taste buds were given a real treat.

As well as the opportunity to taste great produce - strawberries covered in chocolate, sumptuous cakes, spicy sausages, and lots, lots more - there was also the chance to pick up some top tips in cookery demonstrations from companies such as the Old Bridge, Huntingdon, and take part in a number of other events, including a food quiz.

Children were also given the opportunity to decorate biscuits or take a taste challenge with Anglian Water.

"Having people queuing to get into the event at 10.30am was fantastic. It just shows that the people of Huntingdonshire love their food and drink, and the district has some great produce to offer."
