Food Fest

September 20, 2009


Well, the Abergavenny Food Festival has ended for another year and we’re left with happy memories, a full fridge and even fuller bellies.

I didn’t take pics this year (was too busy shoveling food into my mouth) but you can get a sense of things from last years photos here.

As usual, I blew the weeks food money in a single weekend but it was worth it! I got to try my first ever oyster (which I loved, much to my surprise), bought indecent amounts of cheese and ‘sampled’ every perry available. We certainly had a merry time!

Highlights included Kid Me Not Goat’s Milk Fudge, Simon Weaver’s Blue Brie, Menai Oysters, Wernddu Perry (yes, I know I’m biased but it really is good), Gorwydd Caerphilly (the best Caerphilly cheese in the world), Lahloo Tea and the wonderful Made in Monmouthshire area which I hope to be part of next year.

    Sounds like a great weekend! It’s great to expand yourself through trying new tastes and combinations. Hope you enjoy the food you brought home!

    I still haven’t managed to ever get to Abergavenny Food Festival but would love to.

    I have a very foodie week planned starting next week, on Saturday the Dean Heritage Centre has it’s Fungi Weekend, then the weekend after I am off to The Big Feast at the Centre for Alternative Technology on the 3rd, then the Forest Food Showcase on the 4th

    Mmm… sounds tasty! Wales seems to be the place to go for lovely perry, we always seem to come across some when we’re there!

    Its great that the organisers have a crafty section to the event. You’ll have loads of fun there next year! 🙂
