The Cookery School

These 90-minute cookery classes, run in collaboration with the Artisan Kitchen, and based at the iconic Abergavenny Castle, are a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with your favourite chefs. Each aims to teach you a need food skill, learning from some top chefs as they guide you through a practical, hands-on class. You will pick up top tips and recipes and get the opportunity to put your skills to the test, not to mention trying lots of delicious ‘testers’ on the way. Whether you’re expanding your repertoire to impress dinner party guests, or learning a new skill for the first time, here at Abergavenny food festival we are passionate about inspiring you to pick up the kitchen knife and get cooking.

This year don’t miss: Asma Khan, Founder of Darjeeling Express and first UK chef to appear in the cult Netflix tv series, Chefs Table; Dinner Party Cooking with Elly Pear and Rosie Birkett; a pasta masterclass with food writer Emiko Davies; and Scandinavian Baking with Copenhagen’s Trine Hahnemann.
