The first three chefs taking to the Festival stage have been announced!
Renowned for its brimming schedule of celebrity chef demos, top-notch exhibitors and a melting-pot of diverse food cultures, this year’s line-up will be just as tantalising.
Top of the bill is one of TV’s favourite Michelin starred chefs, Tom Kerridge, who will headline the festival on Friday night (18 ), talking exclusively about his new cookbook, Tom’s Table: My Favourite Everyday Recipes, with food journalist Xanthe Clay.
Tom said: “This will be my second visit to the food festival in Abergavenny and the first opportunity for people to get my book before its release on 24 September, which is very exciting. I am looking forward to sharing some of my new recipes with the audience and hope it gets the same warm reception I have always received at the festival.”
Joining Tom and serving up some of their gorgeous and nutritious recipes are Hemsley + Hemsley sisters, Jasmine and Melissa. The food loving siblings take centre stage for two events on Sunday 20, demonstrating recipes from their international best seller, The Art of Eating Well, as well as cooking up recipes for the audience to try with organic vegbox company, Riverford.
If that wasn’t enough to digest, Observer Rising Star of 2015, Olia Hercules, a food stylist and recipe writer will join the line-up to demonstrate some cherished Eastern European recipes from her debut cookbook, Mamushka.
Heather Myers, Chief Executive of the festival said: “Every year we get some of the best names in food and this year will not disappoint. There is a lot more to announce but we hope this teaser will whet people’s appetites for what is set to be another amazing weekend of food, drink and entertainment.”
