Last week I was invited along to a spring showcase of Welsh food at ffresh in Wales Millennium Centre. The evening promised to showcase some of the Centre’s new food suppliers from Wales who are recent winners of a Wales the True Taste Awards.
ffresh are committed to sourcing and serving the best produce from Wales and have become the first restaurant to form a True Taste Partnership with the Welsh Government. Some 80% of the food on ffresh’s new menu is sourced from Wales and nearly a third of those suppliers have won a True Taste Award.
I have reviewed ffresh fairly recently and I have always been impressed with the quality of the food on offer. It is really great to see a restaurant championing the great food and drink available in Wales so I was very pleased to be invited along to this event to meet some of the suppliers and sample of their produce.
After some welcome drinks and speeches we got the opportunity to visit the producers at stands set up around the restaurant. We had time to chat about their products and sample some as well as sampling some of the dishes cooked by the ffresh team using these products.
It was great to meet people so passionate about their food and proud of their products and to sample some of the best that Wales has to offer. Amongst the producers was Green Spoon business Gornos Speciality Foods with their wonderful award winning sausages.
If you haven’t been to ffresh yet, with a new menu coming out, there couldn’t be a better time.
