Taste Swansea's Food and Drink Digest #14 (June 15th 2016)

We've been working hard on the Summer issue of Taste Swansea, which will be available in about two weeks. Follow us on Twitter for updates and - to get an instant digital copy of the next issue - just send us an email with the words 'digital copy' in the subject line.

For now, here are some of the goings-on in food and (in particular this time!) drink in Swansea over the next couple of weeks.


In the mood for something different? The delicious Sosban in Llanelli are hosting a Tamaya Dinner on Thursday, 21 July. After an arrival drink, there will be a gourmet three-course dinner matched with the superb Chilean wine. Diners will also be able to ask questions and learn more about the history of this unique wine. The evening starts at 7pm, with tickets at £40 per person.


If you loved the regular Malabar Aaanaa pop-up kitchens at Noah's Yard, you'll be disappointed to hear that the Keralan Kitchen and Persian Kitchens will no longer be running there after this month. However the good news is Vicki will moving onto new events and markets around Swansea. As always keep an eye on Taste Swansea for updates. In the meantime, you can still catch the final two Keralan Kitchens, which will serve traditional Keralan Thalis, on Wednesday, 22 and 29 June.


Another delicious wine event is coming up this summer as the lovely Mosaic launch their exciting new wine list on Friday, 8 July. Tickets to the event are £10, which includes samples of five wines expertly paired with canapés that will enhance the flavours. Check out the designated Facebook event page for updates.


As part of the Swansea International Jazz Festival this weekend - Saturday, 18 and Sunday, 19 June - Cafe TwoCann will be serving up a delicious three-course lunch, accompanied by performances from Trefor Owen and Andy Hulme (on Saturday) and Steve Williams Trio (Sunday). The full menu can be found here. Make sure to book in advance as it's a popular event!


The next Fairyhill wine tasting lunch at the beautiful Reynoldston hotel will take place on Saturday, 2nd July, between 11am and 1pm. The informal monthly 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. Booking is essential.


As I publish this post the weather in Swansea is typically miserable. However the summer months are generally nice and dry, which is great for the myriad local produce markets we are fortunate to have. Upcoming this weekend, on Saturday (18th June) we have the Penclawdd Local Produce Market, before the Uplands Market returns at the end of the month on Saturday, 25 June. We've also got the brand new Morriston Market at the start of next month (Saturday, 2 July), featuring some of your favourite local producers including Mumbles Pate Company, Ty Siriol Pork, and Little Valley Bakery.


See you in a few weeks when the next issue of Taste Swansea will be available!
