Over 80 schoolchildren are looking forward to a feast of fun today (Friday) when they take part in Narberth Food Festival’s Education Day.

The youngsters from Narberth, Tavernspite and Templeton schools will take over the event’s giant marquee ahead of this weekend’s festival.

They’ll be learning the art of sausage-making from award-winning Narberth butcher Andrew Rees, while dairy company Calon Wen will be showing how to make butter.

And Italian creative chef Orsola Muscia - who will be demonstrating in the festival’s food theatre on Saturday - is all set to share her pasta-making skills.

Food-themed yoga and craft and a talk from West Wales Biodiversity on wildlife food to be found in the hedgerows will also feature in a packed programme.

During their lunch break, the pupils will hear from 10-year-old cookbook author and entrepreneur, Dylan Allman from Llangwm.

Dylan is the UK’s youngest successful crowdfunder, and he will be at the festival during the weekend to sell his book, Food for Thought, which is raising money for Action Against Hunger.

Said Narberth Food Festival committee member Corinne Castle: “Our Education Day is always very popular, and it’s a wonderful opportunity for local schoolchildren to find out for themselves about local food and to be a part of the annual festival.”

Narberth Food Festival takes place on the Town Moor tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday. As well as over 50 stalls, there are chef demonstrations, a pop-up cookery school, a gin masterclass, live entertainment and free children’s activities.

An exciting cast of chefs will be starring in the food theatre, starting off at 11 am tomorrow (Saturday), with insect cookery champion, Andy Holcroft, from Grub Kitchen, St. David’s.
