Taste Swansea's Food and Drink Digest #15 (July 13th 2016)

We hope everyone has enjoyed the Summer Issue of Taste Swansea, which was released just over a week ago. For now, we are back with all the goings-on in food and drink in Swansea over the next couple of weeks.


OH MY GOD, IT'S NOT RAINING! Quick, now's the time to read the Summer Issue of Taste Swansea magazine, which is available as both a printed copy in select quality places across Swansea, as well as the instantly readable digital issue. Get into the summer spirit with lots of foodie news, expert opinions and recipes!


Readers of the new issue will know that local market mainstay Little Valley Bakery are taking permanent residence at the Gower Heritage Centre in Parkmill. And the opening date has now been announced: this Sunday, 17 July, from 10am to 2pm! There'll be a FREE slice of focaccia or cinnamon bun for every person and all are welcome. Following the opening day, the bakery will open every day through the summer holidays, apart from Mondays.


To celebrate World Beer Day on Thursday, 4 August, the beer revolution will be coming to Llanelli's Sosban! There'll be the chance to try classic beer styles from across Europe, as well as fine brews made closer to home, all paired with the delicious food Sosban is known for. Tickets are £20 per person, and make sure to check out the full menu of beer and food.


This Saturday, 16 July, will see the Swansea Vegan Festival return to the city, taking place at the Brangwyn Hall. There'll be around 70 businesses and organisations offering vegan goods - everything from hot and cold food (including Indian, Mexican, Middle Eastern, and pizza); cakes and sweet treats; ethical fashion; health and beauty and animal welfare. There will also be various talks, cooking demonstrations and discussion groups taking place throughout the day. Doors open at 11am, with entry costing £1 per person (under 18s free).


This weekend we have two regular markets for you to visit, including the Penclawdd Local Produce Market, on Saturday (16 July). The Pontyates Local Produce Market in Llanelli also pops up on Saturday at Pontyates Welfare Hall. The Uplands Market will then return towards the end of the month, on Saturday, 30 July.


One week today, on Wednesday, 20 July, the Pettifor Trust Food and Fashion Charity Event will take place at Cafe TwoCann, raising money for the local animal charity. As well as quizzes and raffles, the evening will include a three course menu featuring Honey Roasted Parsnip Soup, Parsnip Crisps and Focaccia; Oven Roasted Salmon, Fondant Potato and Citrus Hollandaise; and Crème Brulee, Mulled Wine Fruit Compote, and Shortbread Fingers. Check out the full menu here.


This summer Cheers Wine Merchants have two events coming up - the first a delicious Spanish wine tasting evening on Saturday, 23 July at the Gower Hotel, whose chefs will provide the food for the evening. Don't like wine? Fear not, as Cheers have also arranged their annual whisky tasting event for the same night, which will take place at Mumbles Rugby Club from 7.30pm. For more info on both events check out the events on their website.
