Wildfarmed has invited five chefs over five nights to join them for a pop-up food festival designed to promote and celebrate sustainable farming and food production. Running from 26th - 30th July with the slogan ‘Fix Food, Fix the Planet’, Wildfarmed will be ensuring that the event has minimal waste by using wooden cutlery, which will be turned into wood chips to grow mushrooms, and the plates are made from wheat production by-product, and will be turned into compost to supply to local businesses.
Joining Wildfarmed for their last night (30th July) at Silas Yard will be Welsh chef Chris Roberts, known as Flamebaster. Titled a’ barbecue guru’ and an ‘ultimate grill master’, Chris will be cooking up some treats in his smoker to fill Wildfarmed’s flatbreads. With the support of Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales (HCC), Caernarfon’s Chris will bring his unique brand of PGI Welsh Lamb cuisine to the event.
HCC Market Development Manager Rhys Llywelyn said, “Chris Roberts has established a great reputation for his innovative and flavour-packed barbecue cookery. He’s a great ambassador for the produce of his native Gwynedd, and we’ve been delighted to work with him several times to promote Welsh Lamb in food festivals right across the UK.”
Chris’ presence at the event will help promote ‘Lamb Day’ on August 1, the annual celebration of the height of Welsh Lamb’s seasonal availability and will also highlight the non-intensive farming methods practiced in Wales.
