THE latest event under the Taunton Food Fest banner raised £1,000 for the Children’s Hospice South-West with a little help from a Michelin-starred chef.

Tax accountant Steve Ashworth, who is organising a series of events as part of a Taunton Food Fest initiative, put on a pop-up restaurant at Clavelshay Barn, near Thurloxton, with 38 guests enjoying food from top chef Sam Moody.
