The famous chefs are cooking and answering cookery queries in food demonstrations over the three days.
Alongside the usual Saturday morning kitchen and Sunday brunch, there is a cooking school area in Royal Avenue Gardens for workshops including bread making, fish filleting and knife skills.
David Jones, chairman of the food festival, said he was "delighted" by the talent and variety of the celebrity and local chefs.
Mr Jones said: "Each of them has their own style and passions.
"Together they represent everything that's great about British cooking and we are honoured to welcome them all to the Festival.
"Food is for everyone, not just a few and it's important to us that all can enjoy and support the event. That's why I'm delighted to see so many different elements of the town getting involved and taking advantage of it."
