About time, you may say. And yes, we have had a little break from the blog over the past few weeks. But we've been working hard on the fourth issue of Taste Swansea magazine (see below), and think it's the best one yet!
For now, let's see what's happening in the next week or so in the world of Swansea food and drink.
The fourth issue of Taste Swansea - the February/March issue - is on its way towards the end of next week. We have great opinion, tips and recipes from local chefs, cookery teachers and foodies, as well as our usual features like Life in the Kitchen, Foodie News and Pop-up Kitchens. Throw in an exclusive competition, interviews and a few reviews, and you have yourself one great food and drink magazine!
Thousands of printed copies are taken around Swansea and Llanelli, but to receive an instant free copy to read on your tablet, phone or computer, just add yourself to our mailing list. Send us an email with the words 'DIGITAL COPY' to this address, and we'll send you a copy as soon as it's available.
TWOCANN JANUARY SALE
Forget boring clothes shops - the real January sales we want are in restaurants! And the lovely Cafe TwoCann, nestled in the SA1 J Shed, are offering a huge 40% off their menu this month. From Wednesday to Friday, £35 will get you three courses and a drink for two people. For full menu details and to take advantage of this offer while it lasts, check out their website.
ARTISAN BREAD EXPERIENCE
Love a bit of fresh bread? Then jump ahead to the start of February and you'll find an artisan bread making workshop at the Gower Heritage Centre, Parkmill. On Monday 1 Feb you will have the chance to sample ancient breads, make your own sourdough starter, and create your own bready masterpieces (which you can eat afterwards!). It's £5 for the whole workshop, which includes a Welsh lunch. Booking is essential, and you can sort that out here.

There are two pop-up kitchens to get involved with this January. First is the Keralan Kitchen in Noahs's Yard (Uplands), which is two weeks today on Wednesday 27 January, from 6.30pm. It's an Indian street-food special and there is a very easy competition to win a Veg Dosa Thali that evening!
Two days later, Moruzzi and Co. in Neath host the Fuller Flavour Supper Club, on Friday 29. The gourmet menu is six-courses long (intriguing course titles include 'Rootylicious' and 'Thermidor') and costs £45 per person. It's a ticket-only event and numbers are limited, so get involved.
