food&drink: Your chance to learn from the masters; YOUR GUIDE TO GOING OUT.

WITH Christmas around the corner, this weekend's North West Food Lovers Festival in Tatton Park, Knutsford, gives you the best excuse you will ever need to indulge your passion for exceptional food and drink.

It features more than 80 of the finest food companies in the region sampling and selling their wares, including favourites such as Mrs Ray's Christmas pudding, luxury chocolates from Cheshire Chocolates, dressed goose from Holly Tree Farm, and lamb from the Tatton estate.

The weekend provides a great opportunity to meet artisan producers currently helping to put British gastronomy on the map.

Tatton's own Housekeeper's Store is flying the flag for local produce and is this year selling fresh, farm-reared lamb from the Tatton estate.

Get ahead with Christmas food planning, stock up on seasonal goodies for your own festive table, and pick up some tasty stocking fillers.

And what better than some useful festive tips from those in the know, with Christmas-themed, live demonstrations from celebrity chefs like Anthony Worrall Thompson, Marguerite Patten, Simon Rimmer and master chef Brian Mellor.

Visitors also have the opportunity to get a real taste of Tatton with regular tours of the restored kitchen garden and spectacular neo-classical mansion, plus discounted entry to the Haunted Hall for those brave enough to enter.

The festival is open 10am-5pm Saturday and Sunday (October 28 and 29), and the event is signposted from Junction 7 of the M56 and Junction 19 of the M6. Admission is pounds 5 adults, pounds 4 senior citizens and pounds 2 children - kids under two go free. For further information call 01695 732 734 or visit
