We've been waiting patiently and it's finally here... the line up for this year's Cardiff International Food and Drink Festival! You may have gathered from our previous posts that we're based in the glorious city of Cardiff, and of course, we love our food, so the weekend of the 8-10th or July has been marked on our calendar for months! 

The event page for the annual festival (which takes place next weekend), has posted the list of street food stalls and suppliers that will be treating Cardiff Bay to their delights this year, which has us even more excited for the big event itself. The only thing left to decide, is how we're possibly going to try everything we want.

Here are some of the highlights for this year, and what we're most looking forward to:

Cheesy Delights 

No food festival or farmer's market would be complete without a healthy dose of creamy, cheesy goodness, and luckily , there are plenty of delicious varieties to try at this year's festival!


If you're looking for something a little different, Blacks Cheese will certainly give you a welcome change from your traditional cheese selection. If you thought apricot cheese was adventurous, prepare to have your socks blown off by their weird and wonderful flavour selection which includes Jalapeno & Lime, Caramelised Onion & Rioja, and even a Sticky Toffee Cheese!



If you like something with a bit of a kick, then Snowdonia Cheese will certainly have you spoilt for choice! From the chilli-laced Red Devil to the whiskey-splashed amber mist, the fantastic selection of flavours and cheese varieties on offer here are perfect for anyone who wants to give their cheese on toast a serious upgrade, or find the perfect showpiece for their next cheese and wine party.

Sweet Treats


If you spend half your life drooling over baking pictures on Pinterest, then this is the stall for you! Serving up a scrumptious selection of delicious traybakes, the Narna's Cake stand is sure to have you coming back for more, once you've sampled one of these delicious bakes! The Peanut Butter Fudge Cake and Salted Caramel Slice are just some of the highlights...



Since opening the doors to their brand new shop earlier this year, to an outstanding reception from South Wales locals, Subzero have gone from strength to strength. It's highly likely that you've seen their sublime sundaes all over your social media feeds, so why not try out their amazing ice cream for yourself?



A Welsh food festival wouldn't be complete without some traditional baked goods, and luckily for us, Popty Cara has bags of traditional welsh goodies to treat us to! While yummy bakes like their Chocolate Pudding Cake are super tempting, we think we'll be sticking to their fantastic Welsh cakes!

Street Food Gems 


Ever had a Polish pasty? Well it's time you did! This family- run stall will certainly be a treat for those looking to get their pastry fix, as well as those who want to try a variety of traditional foods from different nations. You can really tell that this is food made with love, the only thing we can't decide is which looks better: the pastry or their amazing fillings?!?



You may have seen this lovely stall mentioned in our previous Cardiff street food blog, but it's too good not to include again! When you've had your fill of cheese and cider samples, this is the place you should be heading for something more substantial! Serving up authentic Greek meat, skewered and cooked over charcoal, in delicious toasted pittas, Meat and Greek will give you a taste of Cyprus (even if the Welsh weather doesn't hold up for the occasion).



If you're a veggie hoping to get in on the foodie action in Cardiff Bay next weekend, then you're in luck! Fresh from serving up hundreds of hungry festival-goers in Glastonbury, The Parsnipship will be there to delight veggies and meat-eaters alike, with their delicious bakes. and plates of deliciousness!

Father's Day is a time to reflect on the importance of the father-figures in your life, and to pay thanks for all the kind and generous things they've done for you over the years. Now, I don't know about you, but I can't think of a better reward than some great food, which is why foodie gifts and meals out have become such a staple for the occasion. 

While we're equally in-favour of taking your dad out for dinner, we'd like to offer a few alternatives for those on a stricter budget, or those who want to provide a more personal touch. Putting time and thought into a meal is sure to make the special man in your life feel appreciated, and when he tastes these recipes, he may never moan about giving you a lift again!

Eggs Benedict Breakfast

While we don't think that you can ever go wrong with a good fry-up, it's always a good idea to try something equally tasty, but a bit less obvious. Eggs Benedict are the perfect treat to start your dad's day, and are ideal for serving up on a neatly prepared breakfast tray. To find out how to make this much-loved brunch staple, head over to Delish.

Stout-Braised Steak With Stacked Chips

When it comes to feeding hungry dads, you can't go far wrong with steak and beer; so why not combine the two in one delicious dish? This recipe from BBC Good Food is the perfect alternative to your standard steak and chips, adding a rich and flavourful sauce to enhance the delicious beef shin steaks. Additionally, this recipe is also ideal for a family meal, if you're thinking of getting everyone together to celebrate. Find the details here.

Spinach and Ricotta Filo Pie

This cheese-filled pie is sure to hit the spot, with the perfect mix of its soft, creamy centre, and crisp, flaky crust. It would work well as a stand-alone dish, but also as part of a delicious buffet, if you were thinking of putting on a larger spread. Best of all, it's also one for the veggie dads out there to enjoy, and is ten-times better than any of the poorly thought-out 'veggie options' on standard restaurant menus! Find out how to make it over on Olive Magazine.

Whiskey Burgers

So alcohol and meat is becoming something of a theme... Let's face it, there's nothing that says 'Father's Day' like a bottle of his favourite spirit and a juicy cut of beef, so why not combine those two staples in one delicious dish? The trick to making this dish is to find top-quality burgers, and soak them in whiskey. The recipe doesn't call for a specific type or brand, but we'd suggest using a nice Bourbon to get that authentic American flavour! Find out how to make them here, by following Mantitlement's delicious recipe!

Dark Chocolate and Mint Gateau

Nothing says 'I love you', better than a freshly baked cake, and this one is a real winner! The soft sponge, creamy mint filling, and decadent ganche, all combine to make a truly delicious dessert for your dad. The only thing you'll have to worry about if you make this, is that it tastes so good, that the person you're making it for will want you to make it all the time!
