Chef Tom Kerridge opened Wales’ biggest food festival tonight.

The two Michelin-starred chef opened the 2015 Abergavenny Food Festival with an exclusive sneak-peek into his brand new book, Tom’s Table: My Favourite Everyday Recipes, released next week. For the first event of the festival, Kerridge was in conversation with the Telegraph’s Xanthe Clay, speaking to a 300 strong room at the historic Borough Theatre.

Kerridge said: “I’m delighted to be back in Abergavenny and honoured to be opening the festival.”

Heather Myers, chief executive of the festival said: “We’re overwhelmed by the line up we have been able to put together for this weekend and tonight was the perfect start.

“We were absolutely delighted to have Tom join us to open our festival and share his stories with us, giving us a little insight into his work and passions.

“As we expected, his talk was a complete sell-out and the atmosphere was fantastic. We can’t wait for the full programme to kick off tomorrow and welcome thousands of people to our festival.”

There is ticket availability to masterclasses, talks and chef demonstrations during the weekend, as well as general entry wristbands which let you explore the market venues and sample from over 200 producers from Wales and beyond. Tickets can be purchased from the festival box offices on site in Abergavenny.

Newport brewery wins top title in Great British Beer Festival

The owners of Newport’s Tiny Rebel Brewery are celebrating today after winning the title of Champion British Beer with their ale, Cwtch.

Great British Beer Festival

The prestigious award comes at the Great British Beer Festival in Olympia, London, run by the Campaign for Real Ale,where there are 900 real ales, ciders, perries and international beers. There are 350 British breweries featured.

The brewery describes Cwtch as  our very own untraditional Welsh Red Ale. Citrus and tropical fruit dominate the taste that is backed up with caramel malts that balance the moderate bitterness. Drinkability & balance makes this beer.”

8 ideas for tasty Welsh days out with the children this summer holiday

Crowds at last year's Big Cheese
Crowds at last year’s Big Cheese

If you’re looking for some great days out with your children this summer break – and a tasty treat along the way – here’s Gusto’s guide to some of the best child-friendly events in Wales in July and August:

  1. The Big Cheese, Caerphilly – July 24-26.

More than 80,000 people are expected to flock to the event which is celebrating its 18th year. The weekend of street entertainers, living history encampments, funfair, folk dancing and troubadours is free, and has the Taylor Wimpey Great Cheese Race at 6.30pm on July 24, followed by a fireworks display at 10pm. The race involves carrying wheels of cheese on a course around the town’s famous castle.

The music and funfair is open on the Friday afternoon, with trade stalls on Saturday and Sunday only. The event has a food hall with enough choice to feed your hungry youngsters.

More than 60 Welsh producers gather to sell their wares such as cakes, wine, liqueurs, sweets, chocolate, cheese, and pickles.

There will be a demo kitchen with a full programme (about a dozen demos each day), cook-offs, competitions, and a food crèche so you don’t have to carry your purchases around all day.

  1. The Big Welsh Bite, Pontypridd – August 1 and 2

The two-day food festival will take over Ynysangharad War Memorial Park in Pontypridd.
The Welsh Food and Agricultural Show, organised by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council, is billed as a fabulous fun-filled family event.
