Crowds enjoyed food stalls and live cooking demonstrations.
The Fabulous Feast food festival on St John’s Hill served up a treat to Battersea locals and visitors on Saturday.
Shops opened up their doors onto the pavement, while the road lined with specialist food producers, live cooking demonstrations and street food stalls.
One of the highlights of the day was The Great Battersea Bake Off, where crowds gathered to see the result of the close competition.
Rachel James won the brownie competition with her Valencian orange and almond entry, while 11-year-old Savannah Rose, from Putney, won the children’s fairy cake contest.
Kaosarn’s Thai dishes, Dosa Deli’s vegetarian Indian snacks, carriBBurton’s Jamaican jerk chicken, and Simmons’ sweet and savoury crepes all turned up the heat in street food offerings.
Beers flowed freely from casks and kegs in the pubs – while the stall of Battersea micro-brewer Sambrook’s were the providers of real ale.
Experience Travel, who offer bespoke holidays in Asia, delighted visitors in their courtyard with complimentary Vietnamese snacks and Bia Hoi (fresh beer!) and nearby cafe and luxury deli, Urban Gourmet, showcased their fresh bread and pastries.
