Stumped for something to do over the bank holiday weekend? Head down to Hampton Court for some culinary inspiration.
Over the long weekend top chefs and restaurateurs, including Masterchef 2009 winner Mat Follas and TV regular Galton Blackiston, will be preparing a range of delicious dishes at the palace's food festival.
As well as live cookery displays, including masterclasses in champagne, cheese, chocolate and sushi, there will also be lots of stalls serving local produce. While for budding young chefs there's a chance to learn to cook in a special Cooking with Kids event.
Hampton Court Food Festival, Saturday May 23, Sunday May 24 and Monday May 25, from 10am-6pm. Tickets, £15; children under 14 go free.
