Taste Swansea's Food and Drink Digest #17 (September 12 2016)

With summer now pretty much over and autumn well on its way (not to mention the autumn issue of Taste Swansea magazine - out 1 October), there's plenty of harvest, spice and cider in the air! So let's look at some delicious upcoming food and drink events in Swansea and Llanelli that take place as we venture into this lovely season.


Monday sucks, which is all the more reason to get over to Llanelli's Sosban for their special Gourmet Burger evening, which takes place tonight (12 September). Some tasty burgers to choose from including a Welsh Prime Beef Burger, Chicken Supreme Burger, and a Veggie Burger, all served with delicious hand cut chips, for only £11! Add a pint of any draught beer for just £2 extra. Suddenly Mondays aren't looking so bad...


This Wednesday (14 September) Cafe TwoCann - who now feature in the Good Food Guide 2017 - will host their next Wine and Dine evening, featuring two winemakers that have travelled from top wineries in New Zealand and Australia - Jackson Estate Winery and Wirra Wirra Estate. Both will select wines that will be paired with a delicious three course menu, which can be seen in full here. The evening starts at 7pm for 7:30pm, and booking is essential!


Is there a better combination in life than pizza and beer? Celebrate this match made in heaven by heading to the new Copper Bar on Castle Street this Thursday (15 September) for their first pop-up kitchen event with Dusty Knuckle Pizza Company. Pizzas will be served from 3pm, while a sensational choice of local and national craft beers will be on sale all day as usual!


Looking ahead to October and we have the return of the lovely Mosaic Market at Mosaic restaurant on St Helen's Road. As usual, the undercover market take place on a Sunday, this time on 2 October. Some nice craft and food stalls, and I'm hoping they continue to serve their vegan tacos/nachos, which were both delicious and guilt-free! The market takes place between 10.30am and 3.30pm.


Like cider? Then you probably won't need reminding that the annual Gower Cider Festival returns to the Gower Heritage Centre in Parkmill on Saturday, 8 October and Sunday, 9 October. The event will feature cider (obviously) as well as cider workshops and demonstrations, as well as live music, local food producers, and a real ale bar with BBQ. Both days start at 10am and run until well into the evening.
