The super on the evening of the Newport Food Festival is becoming a tradition and a must. This year it will be on 4th October and back in the Market Hall.
That is just one of the changes as the Supper develops.
So far the three courses have each been made by different local businesses but this year Michelin Starred Hywel Jones of Lucknam Park will produce the entire menu.
Hywel is a great friend of the festival and a Newport boy as well.
The supper will consist of a three course meal, created and prepared Hywel with most of the produce sourced from Newport Market.
Not only has Hywel done demonstrations and Masterclasses but he also judges the Teen Chef competition and encourages youngsters to get into catering.
The winning team in the competition get to spend a morning in the kitchen at Lucknam Park as part of their prize. Rumour has it that last year’s winners will be involved in the kitchens at the Food Festival prepping part of the supper, a great experience for them.
Most of the prep will be done by Hywel’s own team and whipped over the Severn Bridge in refrigerated transport. Thanks to the Support of Relais and Chateaux, who own Lucknam Park, Hywel will also bring in some of his brigade from the Michelin Starred restaurant.
