A foodies’ delight, the show is free to the public and sees some of the area’s top chefs cooking up a storm to delight the crowds.

More than 100 exhibitors are showcasing the region’s finest food and drink at the show, which runs until Sunday at Millennium Square in the centre of Leeds.

The event, which is now in its fifth year, includes live cookery demonstrations from local chefs, artisan food specialists exhibiting delicious produce, traditional real ales, Pimms and cocktail bars and some of Yorkshire’s finest restaurants serving their signature dishes.

Saturday’s demonstrations include Italian food with wine matching, cooking curried pancakes, and vegetarian Gujarati food at its best.
