A welcome in the hillside
All in a day’s work - or rather two, as we spent a fantastic couple of days sampling amazing food and drink from some of the leading artisan suppliers in Wales at the Blas Cymru/Taste Wales event, held at the Celtic Manor near Newport in late October.
Superbly organised, with pre-set appointments with suppliers we had targeted ahead of the show, plus the chance to meet more after sampling their products in the food tasting display areas (not to mention the bar!).
Sea salt from Anglesey, beer from Pembrokeshire, cream cheese from Denbighshire, savoury biscuits and jams from Powys, clotted cream from Gwynedd, gin from Monmouth and The Vale of Glamorgan, whisky from the Rhonnda Valley, cheddar from Gwent, charcuterie from Swansea and Ceridigion, honey and mead from the Wye Valley, and much more…
That was the easy part. Now, we’re in the process of short-listing, negotiating and finalising some of the product ranges that you will be able to enjoy in our series of regional and special-occasion food and drink hampers available in 2022.
