Food lovers came together for a fun-filled evening that tested their tastebuds and brain power last night.

The Great Food and Drink Festival Quiz, hosted by Norfolk chef Richard Hughes at The Assembly House in Norwich, saw more than 100 people answering questions covering a wide variety of foodie knowledge.

Participants had to guess the flavour of the chocolates they ate with their coffee, identify a celebrity’s cook book, as well as show off how much they knew about Norfolk producers.

The evening, which included a sausage and mash supper, was part of the EDP Adnams Norfolk Food and Drink Festival, in association with Norfolk County Council.
