Short Supply Chains
Eisteddfod Country Kitchen
The National Eisteddfod is in Monmouthshire from 29 July – 6 August 2016 and this project will put on 8 days of activities based around local food by promoting local chefs, eateries, ingredients and signature dishes to Eisteddfod visitors and engage with local school children; there will be a demonstration kitchen.
Activities will include: Children’s workshops; Welsh chef demonstrations using local food and drink; masterclasses including tutored wine, cider, perry and ale tastings (in welsh); local food quiz and a cookery competition. There will also be a local produce shop.
What are we trying to achieve
The project aims to raise the profile of the Vale of Usk as a high quality food tourism destination and enhance the experience of visitors to the Eisteddfod by delivering an improved sense of place and increase the number of people who recommend the area’s food and drink experiences to their friends and relatives, and who become repeat visitors themselves. Local food and drink producers will be involved in events, as well as a retail opportunity.
Timescales/Cost of project
The application was approved by the Vale of Usk LAG on 4th May 2016 and organisation and delivery of the activities will now take place with the event beginning on 29th July. The total cost of the project is £31,247
