Spotted @ Abergavenny Food Festival

It's the annual Abergavenny Food Festival in South Wales this weekend. I know... it's a slight departure from the norm and as events go, maybe not the richest of pickings for 'style scanning'. However, there were definitely a few pleasant surprises...

Tim Hayward, Guardian food writer and publisher/editor of new food magazine Fire and Knives.

As always, thanks to everyone who took time to pose for a picture.


  1. Ooh, love Michael Winner! I got my photo taken with him on Saturday. (Slightly embarassing cos he thought I was a boy but I forgive him)

  2. That's hilarious, you win hands down then. I found him very amusing, not as pompous as I'd imagined and some great stories exposing the eccentricities of the 'stars' he's had to pander to....Like Robert de Niro insisting on being addressed as 'John Ridgeway' by everyone on the film set!!!
