The Abergavenny Food Festival has become an important date in Britain’s gastronomic calendar. Now in its eleventh year, the festival has firmly established itself on the culinary map, attracting 25,000 visitors from around the world each year seeking fine local produce like delicious Welsh black beef and succulent salt marsh lamb. The festival transforms the sleepy market town into a vibrant venue for the sampling of fine fare, and the digesting of culinary tips from top chefs. The two-day event will take place on 19th and 20th September in venues in and around the town.
Highlights of the festival include appearances from Michael Winner, best known for his restaurant column in the Sunday Times, and a chef demonstration by the Allt Yr Ynys Country Hotel’s head chef.
Allt Yr Ynys Country Hotel is a beautifully preserved, 16th Century manor house, steeped in history, and set in the foothills of the majestic Black Mountains on the fringes of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Allt Yr Ynys is renown as the most welcoming of Abergavenny hotels.
The hotel boasts its own indoor heated swimming, sauna and spa bath and the covered clay pigeon range can be enjoyed by both beginners and experienced shooters, and can also arrange fly and coarse fishing on numerous rivers and lakes in the area.
Elaine Williams, the hotels managing director says: “Allt Yr Ynys Hotel has participated in the food festival in recent years, and this year will be no exception. Following the recent refurbishment of our restaurant, we think that our head chef’s demonstration will give festival goers the perfect opportunity to experience the culinary delights they can expect at the Allt Yr Ynys Country Hotel.”
