schedule Past event
The second Caerphilly Food Festival is pulling out all the stops to make it an event to remember, and one that will draw visitors from near and far! This year, when the festival comes to town on Saturday 4 May, to ensure that the event reaches its full potential, following a high footfall in 2012, which was aided by the Olympic Torch Relay, celebrity chef Jean Christophe Novelli will be onsite for the duration of the event to add some European culinary skills into the mix. The well known chef, who has a 5 out of 5 AA Rosette and Michelin star to his name, will be on hand at the Caerphilly Food Festival to carry out cookery demonstrations throughout the day and will also give visitors an opportunity for autograph and book signings. Dubbed “the nations favourite French chef”, Caerphilly cannot wait to welcome Jean Christophe Novelli into town! As well as the cookery demonstration programme, the event will include over 60 stalls, farmers market, animal displays, children’s activities and lots more. Cllr Ken James, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Planning and Sustainable Development said, “This excellent event promises to offer a vast array of culinary delights and fun for all the family. Set in the heart of Caerphilly town centre, I would encourage as many people to come along and enjoy this event as possible”. Caerphilly is cooking up a storm on Saturday 4th May 2013 between 10am – 5pm. Miss it and certainly miss out!! For further information on the Caerphilly Food Festival, please call 029 20 88 00…
