This year’s Slow Food UK award winners have been named – and four of the Welsh winners are based right here in Cardiff.
Cardiff Farmers Market won best Welsh market, Pettigrew Bakeries picked up best Welsh bakers, Ashton’s was named best Welsh fishmonger, and Oriel Jones won best Welsh butcher (for the second time). Elsewhere in Wales, one of my favourite food businesses, Wrights Food Emporium (pictured above), picked up two awards for best Welsh deli and best Welsh restaurant.
This year’s ‘Good Food Cardiff Autumn Festival’ is focused on championing sustainable, healthy food – and encouraging Cardiff’s communities to come together to shape their local food system.
Following the success of the 2020 Festival, Food Cardiff’s ‘Good Food Cardiff Autumn Festival’ has returned with a focus on building healthy communities. With both in-person and virtual events taking place during the week of 16th – 24th October, the festival will host a series of sessions centred on nutritious food, sustainability and connecting with likeminded individuals.
In this episode we talk to Phill Lewis of Dusty Knuckle restaurant in Canton. Last February, Phill left Cardiff with nothing but a sack of flour, a case of tomatoes, and a box of cheese, and traded his way to Naples, using only pizza as currency.
