TOM Kerridge's food festival kicked off with a bit of 90s nostalgia from the Sugababes.

The pop girl band did a proper throwback Thursday moment on May 18, with their cult classics Push the Button, Too Lost in You, Overload and more.

But their presence on stage wasn't the only thing which delighted festival-goers (and myself included).

The Bucks Free Press was invited down to try some of the food on offer.

We tried food from Tom Kerridge’s founding pub The Hand and Flowers and Made In Oldstead, founded by Michelin-starred chef Tommy Banks.

First up was a delicious Lamb Shoulder bao bun with fermented chilli and kimchi. 

Bucks Free Press:

The Oldstead loaded fries tasted moreish with a thick layer of beef ragu and creamy mustard mayonnaise.

Then we headed over to The Hand and Flowers stall, or as I like to call it,  Kerridge's Corner as The Coach (his second restaurant) was right next door to it.

My absolute favourite dish from this menu was the Smoked Saltbeef and Truffle Rarebit on Toast and Kerridge's Fried Chicken.

Bucks Free Press:

The flavours were bursting with each mouthful and left me wanting more.

The curry dog Chef’s Special dish, which featured a hotdog served with curry ketchup, chilli, mint chutney and Bombay mix - wasn't my favourite.

It felt as if the dry spiced mix was a random addition thrown on at the end to add crunch, but it didn't really add anything to the hot dog.

All the food cost £7 per plate and provided a bitesize insight into what you could expect at each of the restaurants.

There's an incredible range of restaurants for you to try and I'm slightly gutted I didn't check out Atul Kochhar, as he's known for his Indian fine-dining cuisine.
