Adding a taste of luxury to local festivities, one of Abergavenny’s most esteemed chefs will welcome guests to his two pop-up kitchens next month.

Chef Franco Taruschio has collaborated with his daughter Pavinee to put together two one-off menus for the events, which will be held on 2 December at Llanover house and 10 December at Abergavenny Cricket club.

Next months festive dinners mark the return of Franco’s popular pop-up kitchen to Abergavenny’s renown food fairs, following similar events last Christmas and in September.

“They were so successful we just couldn’t take any more bookings,” said Franco’s wife, Ann, who is in charge of booking arrangements. She says that demand for tickets for this season’s pop-up kitchens has been equally high.
