Cornwall Food and Drink's biggest event of the year has returned to Truro, as a fabulous foody festival returns to Lemon Quay.

The event kicked off on Friday, and runs through Saturday and Sunday.

Head to the Pavilion to see and sample some of Cornwall’s best food and drink producers; catch a live demo by one of the county’s top chefs; kick back in the Croust Bar with great food and live music. Organiser's say it is a weekend not to be missed.

This year is the festival’s 10th anniversary, and the "friendly, fun and genuine" festival is back "bigger and better than ever". 

New for 2013, don’t miss the pop-up Croust Kitchens, where a selection of Cornwall’s best chefs will be offering a taste of mouth-watering signature dishes in true street food style within the Croust Bar, where you can relax with friends or catch one of the free masterclass or tasting sessions on the Croust Bar Stage.
