Hundreds of locals and people staying in holiday cottages in the Forest of Dean near Coleford flocked to Speech House to attend the weekend-long event and see MasterChef co-presenter Gregg Wallace.

The Forest Showcase Food & Drink Festival had more than 80 local and international food producers in attendance and they were serving a number of hot food dishes to visitors.

Internationally recognised chefs wooed crowds with their cooking demonstrations, a number of talks from chefs and even a “Fruits of the Forest dessert” competition.

A spokesperson for the festival told the Gloucester Citizen, “The Festival showcased the best the area has to offer in food and drink producers with their offerings in the best local, seasonal and speciality food and drink.”

“It’s a great opportunity to get a real taste of the best of the Forest of Dean.”
