Hundreds of people from across the country gathered in Cheltenham for a celebration of food this weekend.
Smiling faces wandered around Montpellier Gardens with a pint in one hand and an exotic dish in the other at the Cheltenham Food and Drink Festival 2017.
Culinary highlights included curry goat, dubbed “the most popular dish” by chef Ruby Bennett, who owns Bristol-based R and B Soul Food.
Ruby, who started the business 10 years ago, said the recipes are inspired by her mother and grandmother’s cooking and that she began by cooking for friends.
Dave Bates from west Wales was among those who travelled from far afield to attend the three-day event, which finishes today.
The vegan, 55, said he had enjoyed “good karma” foods such as curry and “giant” olives which were the size of grapes.
Fraser Brown, 22 and Laura Manley, 23 enjoyed a pork belly box which they described as “excellent”, adding that it was a “lovely barbecue dish”.
