Street food from Sachins, Newcastle.

Visitors to Alnwick Food Festival will be able to sample foods from around the world with a bigger and better street-food section this year.

Six different food producers are lined up to serve their culinary treats in the Market Place with stands open until around 11pm on Saturday night.

Top North-East chefs Bob Arora, of Sachins Indian Restaurant in Newcastle, and David Kennedy, who will be demonstrating in the Northumberland Hall, will be selling street food as well.

There will also be local producers on hand. Turnbull’s of Alnwick will be serving pulled pork buns, giving a taste of trendy American cuisine, while the Hogs Head Inn will be celebrating the humble English roast dinner serving mini Sunday dinners in a home-made Yorkshire pudding with rich gravy.

Northumbrian Farmhouse will be serving award-winning burgers and sausages plus succulent meats from their mobile kitchen. And, with a taste of Italy, Pizzette will be serving individual nine-inch pizzas from a converted 1975 Citroen HY van.

The street food vendors will be opening late and a band will entertain Saturday evening visitors.

The group will be playing from 4pm to 10pm in the Market Place.
