One of the east coast’s biggest gatherings of leisure boats, the Anstruther Muster, introduced a short programme of cookery demonstrations as it launched its 2012 celebrations, and the organisers hope to expand the feature in future years.

Hosted by Anstruther Sailing Club, the event attracted dozens of visiting boats over the weekend of August 9-12, and the demonstrations were held in the marquee on the central pier.

Visitors were able to pick up copies of the guide to Fife’s Food and Drink – the Fife Larder – enter a competition with a prize of a £50 to spend on Fife food, and buy produce at several stalls.

The trial demonstrations, aimed at helping sailors to create simple but nourishing meals on board their boats, were supported by the Fife Food Network’s “Food from Fife” initiative.
