Thousands of foodies turned out to the Great Missenden Food Festival over the bank holiday weekend.

From celebrity chefs and live BBQ cooking lessons to children’s cookery schools, the annual festival cooked up a treat as it returned over the Easter break.

Swathes of stalls offering free taster samples tickled tastebuds as food lovers from across the county tucked into hearty homemade pies and sausage rolls, and street cuisine from around the world including Mexican, Greek and Indian, in the glorious sunshine.

A tantalising selection of fresh cheeses, sauces, oils, fudge, artisan breads, speciality coffees and even flavoured vodka and gin were on offer, as well as cider and fresh ice cream.

Children enjoyed an Easter egg hunt, cooking masterclasses and a food laboratory, while celebrity chef Rosemary Shrager whipped up a pizza on the Saturday in front of a rapt audience.
