Newport Food Festival Supper Launched

Tickets for the 2012 Newport Food Festival have just gone live, and one of the hottest tickets in town will be for the Food Festival Supper held on the eve of the festival.

I was lucky enough to get to the inaugural Supper last year and what an event it was!

Several local food businesses had teamed up to provide an excellent menu based on local, seasonal and sustainable ingredients and, almost more importantly for me the wait staff had all been unemployed and had been trained for the event with a view to getting work in the food sector.

With entertainment and dancing towards the end the event was a great showcase for the festival and set it off in just the right way.


This year the Supper looks to be just as good with three restaurants combining talents to provide a strong menu.
