A CELEBRATION of the West Country’s best local food and drink producers takes place this week and weekend.

On August 29, 30 and 31, there will be a range of events taking place on the Castle Green and in the Castle Hotel in Taunton.

This year, Feast is hosting two gala dinners featuring top chefs such as Michael Caines, Hywel Jones, Stephen Terry, Josh Eggleton and more.

The Thursday Feast will be a completely new concept with a range of bite-sized delicacies created by top regional chefs from their own pop-up stands.

On Friday, Josh Eggleton, Michael Caines, Chris Cleghorn and Liam Finnegan will host a Joseph Perrier Champagne and canapé reception, followed by a four-course dinner and expertly paired wine with each course.

This Saturday you can wander around the Feast stands on the castle green and try the best local produce or join Stephane Delourme, Hywel Jones, Stephen Terry and Liam Finnegan for a canapé reception and four-courses at The Castle Hotel.

The Saturday festival is a free to attend event with over 20 producers from hot dogs to chutneys and cheese to gin.
