Culinary delights and cookery classes will return to Somerset this weekend.

Eat:Burnham will be based around the town centre from 9am-4pm on Saturday, with five streets and indoor venues allocated to host the food festival.

More than 130 of the regions finest food and drink producers will showcase their items in the High Street as the award-winning show returns to the town for the seventh time.

Festival regulars Passion and Smoke, Nutts Scotch Eggs, Hills Bakery and Times Past Cheese Dairy will have stalls.

School chef Steve Fowell is also 
set to run a masterclass for food-lovers.

The Hawksmoor Cookery School will host workshops at the Ritz Social Club, in Victoria Street, while the Baptist Church in Station Road will house the retreat demo stage, where chefs will cook dishes aimed for families to recreate at home.

Drop-in sessions are due to take place from 10.30am-12.30pm, or 1.30-3.30pm.
