Grow your own pizza competition
The grand finale of the Food Academy's Grow your Own Pizza competition for local secondary schools will take place in the main Market Hall on Sunday morning. Not only have students had to come up with a unique Welsh take on a pizza they have also had to grow as many ingredients for it as possible, such as garlic, tomatoes and basil. Chef Cyrus Todiwala, a regular on the BBC's Saturday Kitchen, will crown the winners who will receive a luxury break for a family of four at theCeltic Manor Resort (celtic-manor.com).
It will include a two night stay at the five star hotel including full Welsh breakfast, dinner each evening, a chance to try out spectacular Adventure Golf and the exhilarating Forest Jump treetop adventure plus a choice of supervised children's activities, giving Mum and Dad a chance to relax, unwind and enjoy the luxurious spa.
All participants will also receive a goody bag with cookery essentials from the wonderful Cooks Galley in Abergavenny and a copy of Alex Mackay's new cookbook Everybody Everyday.
The 2013 Abergavenny Food Festival will take place over the weekend of the 21st and 22nd September!
