AS the first Huntingdonshire Food and Drink Festival draws ever nearer, the list of events - all aimed at giving the taste buds a treat - has been confirmed.
The festival will stretch across more than two weeks (from September 8-16), highlighting some of the district's best venues, producers and chefs.
The highlight will be Food Fest 2007 on Sunday, September 9 at Wood Green Animal Shelters in Godmanchester.
This will be the festival's showcase event, a one-day extravaganza of local food and drink with tastings, demonstrations and the chance to try various food crafts.
One of the chefs taking part this year is Angela Malik, who runs her own school of food and wine.
As well as having a stand at the show promoting and selling her product range, Angela will also be running cookery demonstrations.
