We’ve teamed up with the organisers of the Abergavenny Food Festival to offer you the chance to win two places at: A Feast of Unloved Food on Saturday 15 September, normal price £32.50 each. Chef Skye Gyngell is taking her ground-breaking Scratch menu to the festival for this headline feast. The menu will be designed to use up every scrap possible of the incredible produce supplied by Fern Verrow, the 16-acre biodynamic farm just a stone’s throw from Abergavenny.
Details of the menu will be confirmed nearer the time, depending on seasonality, but you can expect a variety of delicious, nutritious dishes using ingredients that are often overlooked or wasted – like the delicious bread soup with vegetable trimmings that Skye submitted for our One Planet Plate campaign.
You can find out more about the feast here.
It’s the perfect excuse to discover this bastion of the British food festival scene. Join around 30,000 visitors in this most picturesque Welsh town and tuck into a smorgasbord of talks, demos, masterclasses and debates involving some of the very best-known chefs, food writers campiagners and thinkers.
This year’s programme features the likes of Jack Stein, Jose Pizarro, Anna Jones, DJ BBQ, Philip Lymbery, Bob Granleese, Gill Meller, Stephen Harris and Xanthe Clay. Whether you want to learn how to cook over fire, re-imagine your repertoire of cocktails or head out of town on a foraging foray, this festival, now in its 20th year, is the must-visit event for you.
All you need to do is to answer the following question correctly. We’ll then pick a winner at random and you and a friend could be enjoying a fantastic feast, courtesy of Skye Gyngell and her team.
