From traditional fare to the most creative – there was something for everyone to taste and buy at Honiton Gate to Plate on Saturday (September 28) as around 50 fine food, drink and craft producers were joined by top chefs, food experts and talented entertainers.

Thousands of people flocked to the event in the town’s High Street to sample locally made delicacies. Local chefs and food experts took to the stage and demonstrated delicious dishes while talented entertainers performed on a second stage.

The event, organised by East Devon District Council and supported by Honiton Town Council, was a huge success.

Cllr Ben Ingham, Leader of the district council said: “I talked to many visitors and they really liked Gate to Plate. I listened to the producers and they were really happy.

“Next year I think we might try this out in other East Devon towns as well. Devon food and drink is so hard to beat. We all need to try it and buy it.”
