A True Taste of Wales – Afternoon Tea at Future Inn Cardiff

Did you say sandwiches and cakes, with a Welsh theme? Yes, please!

On Thursday 10th January, I attended a bloggers event at Future Inns in Cardiff Bay which re-launched their afternoon tea offering.  When it comes to indulging on a finger sandwich and scone you are quite literally spoilt for choice in Cardiff.

What is most impressive about the Taste of Wales Afternoon Tea, apart from the price, was that it is homemade.  You always know when cakes have been bought in, or added too, cut up, etc so it makes such a difference when they are made from scratch and only have to travel a few metres from the kitchen to your table.

BITE Cardiff Food Festival at Insole Court

Viewing from my lounger on the beach in Gran Canaria, my social media streams were full of delicious-looking food as the BITE Cardiff Food Festival team teased pictures of the fantastic food that could be sampled on the lead up to the event.

The event was held on Saturday 14th July 2018 at Insole Court between 12 noon and 10pm.  It was advertised as a ‘food festival with a difference’ and focused on high-quality dishes and no fast food, and no entrance fee.  The Chef’s were given the challenge of creating a single dish to sell for £3 each.
