Some of the most famous young chefs from the UK are on their way to the Berriew Glansevern Hall Gardens the first weekend of September in order to show off their talent at the 2010 Welsh Food Festival.
In its fifth year, the festival will have more producers than ever as the largest in Mid Wales. Leading the pack of 100 producers will be weather presenter Sian Lloyd and the television chef Bryn Williams.
Chairman of the festival, Bernard Harris, stated that the festival delights families every year with hands on activities for young children, demonstrations from top chefs, and plenty of inspirational ideas for the garden. Given the fact that there is something for everyone, Harris promises that no visitor will leave disappointed.
Among the key events is Williams’s preparation of sense stimulating dishes such as those that the Queen ate for her 80th birthday. Lloyd will also be showing off her cooking with Dai Chef which promises to be a powerful combination worth stopping by to see.
Also slated to appear is Luke Thomas who at age 16 is one of the youngest chefs in the UK but still quite experienced given he has cooked for Prince Charles and worked with Le Pergola and Gary Rhodes.
Gloria Lambourne will also be there to share culinary tips about how to prepare Oriental and Malaysian cuisine as well as Chef Tim Harrison who will be cooking his food over a fire.
Other activities at hand at the fair include lessons on how to make handmade pizza and young gardeners can meet with the Acorns junior gardening club to participate in a variety of crafts.
