The Abergavenny Food Festival showcases some of Britain’s best artisan food businesses. But are they destined to be forever supplying niche markets? Will the day come when good food is available to the many, not just the few? Or has that day already arrived? Come and join the debate. Chaired by Sheila Dillon – BBC Radio 4 Food Programme presenter. The panel: Catherine Gazzioli – CEO, Slow Food UK, Rufus Carter – MD, Patchwork Traditional Food Company, and Camilla Barnard – Director, Rude Health. This event will take place on the Robert Price Kitchen Stage in the Market Hall on Saturday 18 September. Free on the 6-Venue Stroller Ticket.
The Rude Health Rants went down a storm last year at The Castle – so they’ve got the soap-box out again with a stellar line-up of celebrated chefs, passionate producers and fearsome food writers. What’s hot, what’s not – all the latest food issues from those in the know, including fiery chef Cyrus Todiwala OBE of Cafe Spice Namaste, straight-talking Richard Lea-Wilson from Halen Mon Sea Salt and Rare Tea Lady Henrietta Lovell.
