Do you think you’re Monmouthshire’s biggest foodie? If you want to show off your culinary expertise, then you’re in luck as we are on the hunt for the county’s biggest self-confessed gourmand!

We’re asking residents of Monmouthshire to share a reason in no more than 150 words highlighting why they should be crowned ‘Monmouthshire’s biggest foodie’.
Our head chef Mike Hendry will judge the answers, so it’s important to ensure yours stands above the rest.
Mike has gained a decade of experise, previously working as Sous Chef at the Michelin starred Crown at Whitebrook. He is passionate about using only the highest quality produce from trusted Welsh suppliers.
The entrant with the best answer will not only be crowned Monmouthshire’s biggest foodie but will win a visit from Mike who will cook a three course dinner for two in the winner’s own home.
Our runners up will also be awarded.The person at second place will win a day’s hire of our Renault Twizy ‘Tipyn’ to explore the countryside along with a luxury hamper for two, while third place wins a delicious afternoon tea in our lounge where local jazz band RedRug play on the first Sunday of every month. The top three answers will also be published within the Abergavenny Chronicle.
Monmouthshire has long reigned as the foodie capital of Wales, and is the home of the Abergavenny Food Festival, otherwise known as the ‘best event in Wales’, and an abundance of impressive restaurants, locally sourced produce and award-winning vineyards.
If you think you know your smoked Brecon venison from your Welsh beef, then this could be the competition for you!
The competition will run until Friday 10th October. The winner will be announced on Tuesday 14th October.
