After the success of last year’s festival, Rougemont is delighted to be teaming up with Cook School again this year to deliver kids’ cookery classes during the weekend of the festival.

Exciting and fun sessions will be run by Cook School and Rougemont School at the Abergavenny Food Festival on both Saturday and Sunday, teaching children how to cook popular and delicious street foods with locally sourced ingredients.

And the good news is that the kids’ cookery classes are ALL completely free of charge as are the wristband tickets for under 16s.
