A world of culinary inspiration was on offer for visitors to the Sandringham estate at the weekend during its annual food and drink festival.

A host of leading chefs gave demonstrations throughout the two-day event on Saturday and Sunday, while festivalgoers also had the chance to test their own skills.

Thousands of visitors flocked to the estate to enjoy demonstrations by chefs including Levi Roots, inventor of the Reggae Reggae sauce made famous by his appearance on the BBC show Dragons’ Den, and former Masterchef champion Shelina Permalloo.

And there was plenty to sample in the main food halls with products ranging from homemade sausages to vodkas of varying flavours all on offer, plus a series of wine tasting sessions led by representatives of Brothers Wines.

Many of the latest cooking gadgets and utensils were also on sale during the weekend.

And other highlights included a range of craft activities, including wood turning, chainsaw carving and glass blowing, while live music was also provided by pianist Jamie Cussins, the FB Pocket Orchestra and Saxophonix.
