Great tastes for all at this month's Welsh January food fair

The starts of the show at this months National Botanic Gardens of Wales January Food Fair will undoubtedly be the local producers. They are to lay on an amazing feast for all the visitors who come along to the event on the 26th-27th January, and there will be a host of tempting treats for all palates.

For the carnivores, there will be wild boar, longhorn beef, pork, squirrel and mutton, while vegetarians get to tuck into parsnip fritters and beetroot bombs. Those who love fish can sample mackerel pate and smoked salmon, and to wash it all down there is a huge selection of local beers, cider, wine, coffee and apple juice. Also thrown in for good measure are brownies, cakes, fresh bread, chocolate, cheese and chilli chutney,

Head of marketing at the Garden, David Hardy said: “Our visitors are always keen to support local producers because they know their food and drink is high-quality. We also know that low food miles is good for food freshness and better for the environment; and that backing local businesses is a great way to support the local economy. Could there be a better way to spend your weekend?”

He added: “It is also a fantastic showcase for our local food heroes who offer such a vast array of top notch produce. I can’t wait!”
