In its 16th year, the Llangollen Hamper has been a fantastic coming together of the community throughout the years with it going on to claim a spot in the top 10 food festivals in Britain thanks to The Independent. In no small part down to the amazing collective spirit of the organisers, the accolade goes to show what kind of treats awaits you.
All weekend long, you can enjoy the finest cuisine the area proudly produces with plenty of market stalls highlighting everything from honey to meats and everything in-between. If you’ve a taste for the refined things then you will enjoy a tipple of the gorgeous local wines which themselves have won awards for excellence.
Previous attendees have included local celebrities including Dudley Newberry of S4C as well as household favourites such as Graham Tinsley who found success on the ITV show Taste the Nation. Marquee names this year include Dion Jones: an Anglesey born chef who now lives in Wrexham. Jones has gone on to become a rising star in the industry and will attend the exciting culinary display for 2013.
The famous chef is set to take up residence in a workshop along with other acclaimed names – a great chance for youngsters and enthusiasts to discover secrets to some of the world’s best recipes. Personal cookery classes are also available to those with a passion for the art.
After the weekend is over and all the plates are cleared, it might be a great opportunity to experience the local area.
