There will be more than 90 food and drink
exhibitors participating in this very special anniversary event, offering a veritable
cornucopia of gourmet delights including a
stunning variety of cheeses,
honey, bread of all shapes and sizes, fresh, smoked and cooked meats and fish,
delicious ice creams, and a bewildering array of jams.
And everywhere you go in Brecon you will find
exhibitors – strung out along The Struet, baking in Bethel Square, mingling in the Market
Hall and loitering with intent outside Lloyds Bank in the town centre, many of
them cooking up a feast in front of your eyes.
Not only does the
Brecon Beacons Food Festival offer you the opportunity to indulge your passion
for gourmet food and drink, it also gives you the opportunity watch, enjoy and
perhaps even participate in live cookery demonstrations using exceedingly fresh
and local Welsh Food. And you could pick up some very useful kitchen
tips from S4C Celebrity
chef Dudley Newberry who will rustle up several delicious dishes with no less
than five live demonstrations outside Lloyds Bank during the course of the day.
You can also sit back and enjoy healthy
eating demonstrations by the Welsh Culinary Olympic Chefs on stage in the
Market Hall. They should also inspire you to create fun and easy nutritional
dishes using produce from the many local exhibitors at the event.
Chefs include Dudley Newberry,
Nick Davies and Arwyn Watkins. They will be aided by Roger William MP, Kirsty
Williams AM and Derek ‘the weather’ Brockway of BBC Wales who will also have a go
at producing a dish fit for … eating!
And added to all this frenetic cooking
activity you will also find an eclectic collection of arts and crafts (don’t
forget – it’s time to start collecting those Christmas presents!!) – a surefire
recipe for success!
Whether it’s healthy eating, wine and
ale tasting or food demonstrations, or a browse around the craft stalls, you’re
sure to find something that tickles your fancy – and your taste-buds – at this
year’s very special 10th anniversary Brecon Beacons Food Festival.
