Getting to know Welsh food and Wales better

The ‘Loving Welsh Food ’ Story

We started Loving Welsh Food because we wanted to shout about our committed growers and our wonderful produce. We have many spectacular mountains, a stunning coastline & a little rain – helping to create an ideal environment for growing produce which results in award- winning food and drink.

Welsh Food Tours

Welshcakes and Wine

A delicious day out in the garden of Cardiff, the Vale of Glamorgan sampling Welsh wine, welshcakes, delicious cheeses and much more. Stunning scenery, varied architecture and a few words of Welsh are on the menu as you travel by coach from venue to venue.

We start with a wine tasting at Meadow View Vineyard, a family run vineyard near Cowbridge, in the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan. Can Welsh sparkling wine compete with Champagne? We certainly think so.

Next step, a delicious lunch of Cawl and welsh cheeses is served at the stunning Barn Restaurant set on the cliffs of the South wales heritage coast. Warm welshcakes, fresh from the griddle, are served with your coffee.

We end the tour at Hendrewennol Fruit Farm with a guided tour and tastings including biscotti, jams, fruit vinegars and Hendrewennol ice cream.

Broadcaster and Food Promoter, Sian B Roberts is your guide for the day. Sian’s idea of a perfect day out is great food, beautiful scenery, good company and a lot of fun. The Welshcakes and Wine tour does just that.

““This tour was brilliant, Sian’s talk teaching Wales is a lovely touch”.

From £65.00 per person – including coach travel, lunch, cooking demonstration, all visits and tasters.

Available for groups of 10– 30. French and Italian tours also on offer.
