The Aberdyfi Food Festival is back by popular demand for its fourth year and will be held on the playing field next to Neuadd Dyfi on Saturday 18th August.
The Festival will feature cookery demonstrations by leading local chefs as well as the opportunity to sample and purchase a wide range of Welsh produce including sea food, award winning cheeses, locally reared meat, Swshi, smoked foods, preserves & jams, Welsh wine, beer & cider, organic vegetables & herbs.
The Festival is free of charge and will be open from 10.30 am to 16.30 pm.
Our local Michelin-starred chef Gareth Ward from Ynyshir Hall is our special guest and he will get the cookery demonstrations underway at 11.00 am in the theatre kitchen, where he will showcase his culinary skills. Ynyshir has recently been voted 28th out of 100 top UK restaurants, ahead of The Fat Duck & Le Gavroche. Other local chefs and suppliers will also be putting on demonstrations throughout the day, including a wine tasting & a cocktail class.
Event organiser Neil Storkey said: “The food festival has been incredibly popular over the past few years and is now firmly established as one of the highlights of Aberdyfi’s summer season.
“This is an event for everyone, whatever their age and culinary preferences. Visitors can watch demonstrations, browse the stalls, sample the food and buy fresh produce they may not have come across before.”
The Aberdyfi Food Festival is sponsored by the Aberdyfi Community Council. Further information is available via the Festival’s facebook page.
