Last weekend we attended the Abergavenny Food Festival which we have been to before but had forgotten how big it was and how many people it attracts. The place was heaving with people especially being a beautiful day. We had made the right decision to get there early. For anybody who loves food I recommend it because there is plenty to see. I have one down side to say though there was allot of repeated stalls and the food was good quality but stodgy.
It was good to see so many local types of produce from a lady making casis, masses of local cheese to the delicious calorific Welsh cake. One thing i was impressed by how well organised it was but still retained a laid back atmosphere.

Latley we have been out catching crayfish. They are at their best during the 15th of August and the 15th september, also because the water is low and slower flowing so it is easier to catch them.
How to catch them by Jean Pierre:
Bait an old rat trap or a old net with fish or meat , leave it on the river bed and when enough cray fish are trapped lift and empty the crayfish and start again !!
today we made "ecrevisses au whisky"in the restaurant.
