Taste Swansea's Food and Drink Digest #3

Our weekly food and drink round-up for Swansea, Gower and Llanelli is now a 'once every two weeks' digest, which allows me to cram more news in each one. And, as you are about to find out, this one is fuller than me after a food festival!

Taste Swansea: Issue #2

Firstly, the second issue of Taste Swansea magazine will be released next week (around 2 October)!

If you enjoyed the first issue, you'll love what we have in store for you this time - articles on shopping local, pop-up kitchens, afternoon tea, and healthy eating in Swansea City Centre, not to mention all the foodie news, interviews and reviews that you have come to expect. There's even a free mince pie!

I will be taking the free magazines to quality eateries and hotels in and around Swansea, Gower and Llanelli, so please get in touch if you want me to point you in the direction of your nearest copy.

Pop-Up Kitchens

We love pop-up kitchens and there are loads on the way next month. But to avoid overwhelming ourselves let's stick with the early part of October.

Malabar Aaanaa will be back at Noah's Yard launching their Pomegranate Kitchen on Wednesday 7th October, between 6.45 – 9.45pm. This is a brand new Persian and Middle Eastern night, which will also run in Sketty Bistro and Cafe in November.

The delicious Onam Feast whipped up by Malabar Aaanaa

Another pop-up kitchen which intrigues me is the collaboration between Fairyhill and Babitas Spice Deli, which takes place at the hotel and restaurant in Reynoldston on Thursday, 15 October. Take a look at the delicious three course menu here.

Burgers and Bubbles

To celebrate the Rugby World Cup, The BaySide Grill at Swansea's Marriott Hotel are cooking up burgers fit for a prop, lovingly designed by former international rugby players!

The burgers on the menu alternate each week, with two burgers on the menu at one time. This week, until 3 October, is South Africa (featuring avocado and jalapenos) vs Scotland (with Dunsyre Blue Cheese and Onion Pickle). Then, from 4 October until 13 October, the French (a chicken burger with avocado and tomato) will battle Ireland (pulled beef brisket, Guinness onion chutney, crispy bacon and more!). You can read more about the burgers, their mega fillings and line-up here.

Local Markets

The Uplands Market in full swing

This Saturday (26 September) the popular Uplands Market returns to the Uplands (obviously). Sketty Local Produce Market is back the following week, on Saturday 3 October, before another Saturday market on 10 October, the Mumbles Farmers' Market.

Acoustic Evening

While not particularly foodie in nature, there will definitely be some drinks involved at Steam Coffee Shop in the Uplands this Friday night (25 September), as they hold an uplifting acoustic evening featuring top Swedish duo Lolita Ray and Jan Albert Carlsson. Check out the duo's Facebook page and head along on Friday night! Tickets are £10 and the evening starts at 7.30pm. Over 18's only.
