Another year, another memorable Big Feastival with Alex James and Jamie Oliver celebrating awesome music, delectable food and family fun! There were highlights galore, from Jamie and his Food Tube friends cooking in the AEG kitchen to Fat Boy Slim rocking it on the main stage. Missed it? Fear not, we grabbed some of the best bites!

Gennaro and the gorgeous Chiappa Sisters whipped up a super quick carbonara sauce. This literally takes about 5 minutes.

Things were alive and kickin' when the legend that is Zoe Ball joined Food Busker, John Quilter, knocking up a classic Louisian Po' Boy Sandwich with a British twist. Boom!

Look who dropped in... singer-come-chef Kelis! And she brought with her an awesome shredded beef slider recipe. Slow cooked, melt in the mouth steak, drenched in a beautifully indulgent, cherry BBQ sauce with an espresso kick and served in buttery brioche buns. Perfect party food your guests won't forget in a hurry.

And Ay Caramba! We brought Cuba to Oxfordshire when Food Busker made a deliciously spicy beef taco with the one and only Cuban Brothers. Jokes aplenty and the occasional rap interlude, we are pretty sure that this'll blow you away.

Whilst enjoying the great outdoors you need an appropriate bevy... DRINKS TUBE!

As we're all about the family fun at Feastival, Donal Skehan has knocked up a beautiful Ginger beer (AKA ginger ale). A wonderfully warming yet refreshing medly of fresh ginger, lemons, muscovado sugar and sparkling water.

And of course, no festival is complete without a 6-pack! But canned beers don't have to be fizzy, bland and boring. These days loads of exciting breweries from around the world are releasing their delicious craft beers in cans! Here craft beer marketer Sarah Warman talks through six of her favourites - Camden Town Brewery's Camden Hells, BrewDog's Punk IPA, Maui Brewing's Coconut Porter, Oskar Blues' Dale's Pale Ale, Ska Brewing's Vernal Minthe Stout and Sierra Nevada's Torpedo Extra IPA.
