THE second Caerphilly Food Festival is pulling out all the stops to make it an event to remember.

This year, the festival will come to town on Saturday May 4. To ensure that the event reaches its full potential, celebrity chef Jean Christophe Novelli will be on site for the duration of the event, to add some European culinary skills into the mix.

The well-known chef, who has a five-out-of-five AA Rosette and Michelin star to his name, will carry out cookery demonstrations throughout the day and will also give visitors an opportunity for autograph and book-signings.

Dubbed “the nation’s favourite French chef,” Caerphilly cannot wait to welcome Jean Christophe Novelli into town.

The festival will include more than 60 stalls, a farmers’ market, animal displays, children’s activities and lots more.

Cllr Ken James, cabinet member for regeneration, planning and sustainable development, said: “This excellent event promises to offer a vast array of culinary delights and fun for all the family. Set in the heart of Caerphilly town centre, I would encourage as many people to come along and enjoy this event as possible.”

Caerphilly is cooking up a storm on Saturday May 4, from 10am to 5pm.
