Chef Demos

Here at Abergavenny we really care about getting people cooking. With this in mind, all of our demos are dedicated to nurturing your relationship with all things culinary. Our Market Hall stage will be hosting all chef demos at this year’s festival, meaning that you’ll only need a wristband to catch home cooking inspiration from chefs such as Zoe Adjonyoh of Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen, Nargisse Benkabbou with recipes from her forthcoming book Casablanca, Stephen Harris and recipes from his award-winning book The Sportsman, Jack Stein showcasing his years of culinary globetrotting and passion for British produce and voice of modern vegetarian cooking and author of A Modern Way to Eat Anna Jones. Representing Wales on the demo stage will be the likes of Michelin-starred chefs Gareth Ward from Ynyshir, James Sommerin from his eponymous restaurant in Penarth, blogger and supper club chef Imran Nathoo and the Abergavenny Baker, Rachael Watson, winner of the best cookery school in the Food Awards Wales 2018.
