Two weekend ago Abergavenny staged its now annual Food Festival, a fantastic gathering of chefs, cooks, writers, producers, farmers, foragers and quite simply anyone who enjoys good food. This event happens every September and is always worth a visit.
Gliffaes Head Chef, Karl Cheetham, gave two demonstations during the weekend, one of which we filmed. In this short piece you can see him making a starter of Black Mountain Smoked Duck and Chicken in Aspic with Celeriac Remoulade and Walnut Biscuits.
You can buy the lovely Smoked Duck and Chicken from Jo and Jonathan at Black Mountain Smokery in Crickhowell. They do mail order and their smoked food is perfect delivered by post.
Download a copy of Karl’s recipe. Don’t want to try this at home? Fine – come and have dinner at Gliffaes, it might just be on the menu.
We are planning to fully open from May 17th
We are also planning to offer outdoor lunch on the terrace from May 1st. (No details as yet)
Boris has spoken and it sounds as if ENGLAND will not be opening hotels until 17th May, I assume WALES will follow suit.
Online booking is available and reception will be staffed from 9am to midday from Monday to Saturday, so please do call us.
Thank you for all your support and we hope to see you in May and beyond.
James & Susie Suter and all the team at Gliffaes.
