food festivalsNearly each weekend, there is a meals festival someplace in Wales. At its inaugural occasion in May, the Venice Food & Wine Competition lined up American and Italian culinary luminaries with various Michelin stars (and James Beard awards) for its four-day showcase at the JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa , which is positioned on its own personal island in Venice , the Isola delle Rose.

So it is a becoming place to attend a meals pageant, and this 10-day celebration is among the most prestigious. The walk is now in its fifteenth yr, and was sparked by a tradition started in Ludlow’s twin city of San Pietro – with sustenance offered by native cider, beer, cheese and farmers.

Bustling with bars, farm-to-fork restaurants and numerous breweries and wineries, California’s capital has raised its sport for the foodie traveler with a pageant focusing on everyone’s favourite: bacon. Masterchef winner turned Wahaca founder Thomasina Miers and Caravan’s Laura Harper-Hinton have amassed a stonking checklist of chefs and eateries for the third yr of this meals pageant.

GALA boasts music from the likes of Norman Jay MBE and Derrick Carter, as well as food from pie purveyors Young Vegans, Maltby Road’s Cheese Truck and the ever fabulous Sincere Burger. I ask whether it would be apt to say that the corporate is taking a music festival sensibility and simply adding food.
