Celebrity chef Raymond Blanc has made an appearance at the Royal Bath and West Show near Shepton Mallet, Somerset.
He was trying to find the best cider from a total of 500 entrants, in what is said to be the biggest cider competition in the world.
The Frenchman said it was "marvellous" to see Somerset "reconnecting and reinventing" the craft of cider making.
