Cardiff International Food and Drink Festival 2015

The Cardiff International Food and Drink Festival has been happening annually in Cardiff for quite a few years, and every year it continues to get bigger and better. This year there were more stalls than ever before and more people in attendance, descending on the city in their thousands for the weekend long celebration of food and drink.

The stalls on offer at the festival ranged from those featuring traditional Welsh produce, from welsh cakes and cheeses, to meats and preserves. To international cuisine options along with alcoholic beverage stands including new flavours of cider and vodka, although these weren’t to my taste they were really popular amongst festival goers. 

This year at the festival they also had more gluten-free stalls than ever before, which gave me the opportunity to try some of the food on offer. I couldn’t resist the smells coming from the Jamaican Jerk stand, where I was able to buy jerk chicken, rice and peas (with extra jerk sauce). The quality and quantity of the food was excellent and the portion size was so big I couldn’t even finish it, all for £8. There were also gluten-free brownies available on a different stand for £5/ box, but I couldn't contemplate eating those I was so full.

There was also live music on offer at the bandstand that was erected on Roald Dahl Plass, that people could enjoy whilst sitting and relaxing in the sunshine. The drinking and revelry I’m sure will continue until late into the night, but the part that we enjoyed was brilliant. The food festival was a great way to welcome in the Summer, and I look forward to the many other events planned for Cardiff this Summer.
