Taste Swansea's Food and Drink Digest #11 (March 9th 2016)

We're working very hard on the next issue of Taste Swansea magazine (see below), but we still found time to gather together some news on what's coming up in the next few weeks in Swansea's food and drink scene!


Towards the end of the month the fifth issue of Taste Swansea food and drink magazine will be available in its digital and printed form! It's our spring issue and there's plenty of foodie news, opinion, recipes and competitions to feast on.

Make sure to sign up to our free subscription service and receive your digital copy as soon as it's ready - just send us an email with the words 'Subscribe' in the subject line and we'll do the rest.


At the end of the month Cafe TwoCann will be hosting a special Indian Wine and Dine Evening, which includes a four-course Indian inspired menu paired with wine from Cheers Wine Merchants. The delicious menu includes Indian Spice-encrusted Scallops, and Tandoori Lamb Chops with Minted Yoghurt, Mango, Coconut and Wild Garlic Salsa. The event takes place on Thursday, 31 March from 7pm. Find out more about the menu.


Where will you be enjoying Easter? If you fancy an elegant but casual lunch, the lovely Bayside Grill at the Marriott Hotel are offering a three-course menu on Sunday, 27 March. There's a varied menu, with dishes include Cherry Tomato, Bacon and Basil Soup to start, and Salted Caramel Roast Gammon as main. Three courses is £23.95 per person. Booking is essential! Check the website for contact details.


The maiden Moasic Undercover Market, which took place last Saturday, was a huge success! Loads of stalls, happy customers, coffee and plenty of cake! And the good news is it will be back again on Sunday, 3 April, from 10.30am to 3.30pm. The next market is likely to be bigger and better than the first one, which can only be a good thing. Businesses wanting a stall must email Mosaic directly before Sunday, 20 March.


The enchanting Fairyhill Hotel and Restaurant in Reynoldston will run the next monthly wine tasting lunch on Saturday, 2 April, between 11am and 1pm. The informal event includes a walk-around tasting, followed by lunch. Canapés are served to accompany the wines, and you are able to order any wines that take your fancy at the event. Prices are £5 per person, in addition to the normal lunch prices.


This Sunday (13 March) marks the return of the Marina Market, from 10am to 3pm. The market includes wonderful local producers such as Malabar Aaanaa, Little Valley Bakery, Estelle's Gower Goodies, Raspberry Cakery and more! If you're Gower-bound this weekend, check out the Pennard Local Produce Market, also on Sunday at Pennard Community Hall (if someone could fill me in on the times I'd appreciate it!).


Finally, Swansea Street Feasts have taken up residency at No.6 Bar on Princess Way - serving up delicious Philly Cheese Steaks in addition to other kinds of street foods. They say they have 'reinvented the humble chip butty and fish finger sandwich' for their new lunchtime menu. Very intriguing, I look forward to trying it out!


Remember, it's free to feature on this blog. Just send us your foodie news and upcoming events, and we will do our best to include them in the next installment.
