An authentic Indian cook will conduct free taster lessons at the Foodies Festival this weekend.

The festival, which runs from May 24 to 26 at Marble Hill House, will see top chefs give demonstrations and guests the chance to enjoy themselves at the real ale and cider farm.

Anjula Devi, who runs a cooking school in Hampton, will host the one-hour lessons at her Indian cookery school stand.
