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.

"I am really looking forward to this event as it will give local people the opportunity to see what amazing food talent we have right on our doorsteps," she said.

Her demonstrations will be held every hour from 10.45am to 1.45pm.

Entrance to the event costs £4 for adults and £3 concessions (children under 12 free)

Throughout the festival there will also be dozens of special events at Huntingdonshire's pubs, restaurants, food producers, and markets.

There will also be a food quiz (with the chance to win a Waitrose hamper), a summer wine evening, teddy bears' picnic, a mini beer festival, demonstrations, open days, and special festival menus which focus on local ingredients. Yum.
