I asked my butcher, Chris Hayman Butchers, for some really meaty ribs. “Leave the belly on but remove the rind” I said. Well I certainly got what I asked for because this slab was absolutely huge! I considered trimming it down but then decided to just go for it and cook the whole thing. I was excited to see how this would turn out. Can never have too much meat right? I had some new rubs and sauces from the fantastic local company Brybeque to try out so I thought I would give those a go.
So the weekend of the 15th and 16th of September I was lucky enough to visit Abergavenny Food Festival for the first time. I’ve been meaning to go for years. Even getting the opportunity to go with a press pass last year but not being able to go due to work commitments. Finally getting to go was very exciting. I couldn’t wait to try as much food as possible and see some fantastic demos by some top chefs/cooks. Obviously I was most excited about the outdoor cooking elements and BBQ but there was loads more to see and taste. In this blog I’ll go through all of the food I tried with you and describing it the best I can. I’ll also tell you all you need to know about the demos I visited. Here goes!
