The Northern Lincolnshire Food and Drink Festival returned to Scunthorpe yesterday

The Baths Hall teamed up once again with The Pink Pig Farm for the free event yesterday (Sunday, July 16).

The headliner for the day was San Pietro, who were doing all the live cooking demonstrations throughout the day and cooking a selection of restaurant favourites.

There were also live talks from stallholders who were doing presentations about the food and drink they produce.

This year, there were new suppliers, demonstrations, new competitions and the return of the Pink Pig Culinary Kids Zone.

The Pink Pig were making healthy pizzas and fruit kebabs with the children and also demonstrating how to make sausages.

M&J Seafood were also in the Pink Pig Culinary Kids Zone and they brought along a selection of fresh fish for the children to touch, learn and identify.

This year, there were live cooking demonstrations and talks by Forgotten Fare, Fabulously Fruity Wines and many more.

An outside seating area had stands and lots of new suppliers including Jennys Jams of Lincoln, Ollibuns Cakes and Crafts, The Cookie People and The Tipple Tin Ltd.

The latter was serving speciality gin in a converted horsebox mobile bar.

Adam Jones, from The Tipple Tin, said: "It has been good. It (the bar) was my wife's idea."

Georgie Drinkall, from The Pink Pig, said: "It has been quite busy. This is the second year we have been involved."

Jamie Shaw, from Jamie's Sweet Emporium, was selling his new fudge range.

"We have sold quite a lot," he said.
