Unique flavour of Gala Dinner

Unique flavour of Gala Dinner

Do you fancy dinner cooked by legends of the Welsh restaurant scene?

That’s exactly the treat in store at this year’s West Wales Food Festival when a star-studded line-up of chefs will prepare a special three-course gala dinner at the National Botanic Garden of Wales on Sunday May 12th.

The evening begins with a ‘welcome’ reception in the Great Glasshouse from 6.30pm, with complimentary drinks and canapes, prepared by chef and Marco Pierre White prodigy Scott Davis of Cnwd – a great little food company based in the Tywi Valley.  Dinner is served at 8pm.

Great British chef Shaun Hill – patron of the Walnut Tree, Abergavenny – is responsible for the starter; the brilliant Stephen Terry – proprietor at the Hardwick – is preparing the main course; and the award-winning Y Polyn restaurant will provide dessert.

Garden events organiser David Hardy explained: “The gala dinner really is a totally unique culinary experience. You won’t find these chefs and this menu anywhere else in the world.”

He added: “West Wales as a region produces some of the best ingredients money can buy and to have this excellent, local food in the hands of such top experts . . . well, we are definitely in for a treat.”

The two-day West Wales Food Festival promises a feast of local produce, family fun, foraging, entertainment, music, magic, talks and cookery demonstrations by the likes of Dudley Newbery, Angela Gray and Ludovic Dieumegard. The festival takes place at the National Botanic Garden on Saturday May 11 and Sunday May 12, from 10am-6pm both days.
