Michelin-Starred The Whitebrook chef Chris Harrod to demo at Abergavenny Food Festival

Plenty to look forward to at the ultimate food festival 17th & 18th September

whitebrook1Chris Harrod, chef patron at the Michelin starred The Whitebrook in the Wye Valley, will be making his third appearance at the AbergavennyFood Festival with a demo on Sunday 18th September from 11-11.45am. Now in its 18th year, this is one of the leading food festivals in the UK, with over 200 stalls, 50 ticketed events and 30,000 visitors.

During his demonstration Chris will be cooking with his forager Henry Ashby and the pair will work with seasonal foraged food, reflecting the emphasis Chris places on locally sourced ingredients and freshly foraged herbs at The Whitebrook, which won its Michelin star within 11 months of opening in 2013 and has won acclaim in the Good Restaurant Guide as well as 3 AA rosettes for its restaurant with rooms.

whitebrook2Other praise includes:

‘Michelin-starred chef Chris Harrod produces masterful dishes using British ingredients, many sourced or foraged locally’, 3 of the best Restaurants with Rooms, BBC Good Food Magazine, February 2016

‘Chef-owner Chris Harrod did not bag that Michelin star without being fastidious. Harrod’s food is driven by the seasons and rooted in its locality, highly technical but natural-looking on the plate’, The Guardian Weekend, February 2016

If you are planning a visit to this beautiful corner of Wales, there are plenty of other foodie delights to keep you busy:

  • Enjoy wine tasting at local vineyards including Parva Farm at Tintern and Ancre Hill at Monmouth
  • Visit some of the many local microbreweries including the award winning real ale Kingstone Brewery in Tintern
