Whether a new creation or a traditional recipe, the group is looking for the best sweet or savoury dish that uses fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Prizes include a masterclass with the chef at the acclaimed Stagg Inn at Titley and a hamper bursting with local delicacies. The Stagg has always used the f local produce of this region including trout, soft fruits, vegetables, beef and of course game. It can tailor the day in the kitchen to suit the winner, but is bound to involve learning a few tricks of the trade. Entry forms for the Radnorshire Recipe competition can be picked up from Presteigne library or call 01544 262773. The four best ones will be cooked and judged at the Presteigne Food Trail on the day.
