On Saturday the sun shone and the visitors poured into Dartmouth. These photographs were taken on Friday and Saturday and give you just a small taste of how good the festival was.

2.   Men in black and one in whites

A gathering of 70 guests celebrated the 10th anniversary of Dartmouth Food Festival at Dart Marina Hotel & Spa in Dartmouth on Saturday 28th October. From Creedy Carver Duck to Brixham plaice, loin of Devon Venison to Devon Blue cheese – each morsel was testament to the skill and dedication of Devon producers. Head Chef Tom Woods created a menu that was declared by one guest as “a triumph of local flavours”.

Before the event started in the River Restaurant, Head Chef Tom Woods had chance to chat with guest speakers Tom Parker Bowles and Matthew Fort who gave an after dinner speech covering; Rhubarb Vodka, inheriting the ‘greedy gene’, and how the British food culture has changed for the better in the last 20 years.
