Amgueddfa Cymru’s second Digital Food Festival will return on 6-12 September 2021. The digital event will replace the food festival that is usually held at St Fagans National Museum, and will take place across the Museum’s website and social media channels to ensure the festival can safely take place. The event will feature a host of exciting courses, talks, music events and cookery demos. A series of talks and panels will explore hot topics in the industry including foods of the world and food trends. There will also be a wide range of culinary courses to suit all ages including a patisserie course with Thibault Courtoisier, one of the winners of Bake Off: The Professionals 2020, a family cook along with Beca Lyne-Pirkis, a cook along with Michelin starred chef, Hywel Griffith and a cocktail masterclass with Blasus magazine.
Thibault Courtoisier of Pâtisserie Verteof, who will be running the patisserie course, said:
“We are excited to be running an exclusive online patisserie bakealong as part of the Digital Food Festival. The course is suitable for beginners and experienced bakers alike. We’re looking forward to sharing our patisserie skills with bakers across Wales and beyond.”
An online marketplace will take place over Facebook, featuring over 40 Welsh food and drink businesses. They will be showcasing their unique Welsh produce throughout the festival week.
The Amgueddfa Cymru Digital Food Festival will take place between 6-12 September and is a free event with some paid ticketed experiences. For the full festival programme, see the website here.
