Falafels and frolics at Cardigan Food Festival

We sent our roving reporter Kirsty Morris out to experience the delights of this popular food festival...

"Singers and dancers from the local stage school graced the entertainment stage, the RNLI ran boat rides and some very wobbly coracle paddling on the river, there was fresh pasta and pizza dough workshops for children, and then there were the numerous demonstrations from celebrated chefs.

On top of all this, the sun bounced gloriously off the surrounding estuary- perfect weather to wander about with a nibble and a glass of something cool, local cider or ale perhaps? Or maybe just a glass of freshly pressed juice?

From honey (and their bees) to hemp seed, pasties to pale ale, chilli jam to Preseli coffee- there was a lot to explore. Amy from the Bluestone Brewery was offering tots of their infamous Bedrock Blonde. Simon from Casa del Cymru was on hand with his artisan pasta raviolis. The team behind 25 Mile were wandering around making salads and sandwiches on the spot, and we even met Mr. Nice Pie himself!

Phew! After all that we were in desperate need of lunch so after browsing (and tasting) many of the stalls on offer, we settled for the very local Hemp Hut for some fresh falafels with salad, and soup with local bread! Delicious.

To finish off we headed over to the Cowpots stand and executively tasted the chocolate and caramel honeycomb ice-creams, (we decided that to make an informed decision we might have to go back once…or twice…just to make sure that a fair sampling was taken!)

Keep an eye out (or rather your taste buds tingling) for this fantastic event!"
