Share your pictures and video of the Admiral Newport Food Festival with Gusto.
I’ll be attending the event on Saturday, and I’d love to see your images from the big day which is set to attract thousands of visitors. You can tweet me on @MWilliamsJourno, email email@example.com, or leave your images on the Gusto Facebook page here.
To get your mouths watering, here’s the line-up for the chef and producer demonstrations, headlined by Lucknam Parks’s Hywel Jones, and all are free. There will be more than 70 stalls in the city centre.
One of the demonstrators, Hang Fire Smoke House, has just announced it will be publishing a new book. The slow barbecue specialists say: “We’ve completed the first draft already and will be finalising the photoshoots and last edits soon. We’re looking at a release in May 2016. In our book, we’ll show you how we built our trailer smoker, tips on converting any grill into a home smoker, take you though our road trip where we went coast-to-coast and, of course, tons of recipes to try at home.”
Demonstrations will be held upstairs in Newport Market and due to a last minute change the other stage will be in the foyer of the Seren Group offices at the top of High Street (bus stop end)
The festival also has a bonus demonstration area- the Coleg Gwent training suite in the Royal Chambers building on High Street.
