Dive & Dine Dinner - Pre Demonstration Supper at the Torch Theatre Milford Haven
Food with the 4 J's last night became Food with the 2 J's (other 2 J's were at work).
The venue was the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven for Pembrokeshire Fish week's Dive & Dine Dinner. This comprised of a three course menu featuring a locally caught fish main course of grilled mackerel, broad beans & chorizo from Bryn Williams http://www.odettesprimrosehill.com/, a yummy chocolate & apple desert by Alyn Williams, 2 Michelin Star chef from http://www.westburymayfair.com/alyn-williams-at-the-westbury-,restaurent_viewItem_2-en.html and a selection of canapes to start by Guy Morris of 'on a plate' http://www.uchef.co.uk/. There is no picture of the canapes owing to the fact we were busy chatting and enjoying their delicious taste.....we forgot about a picture!...ooops...!
After dinner we went to watch 'A Fair Fish for a Fare Dish' cookery demonstration. Our friend Simon Wright from http://www.wrightsfood.co.uk/ (who I promise we are not stalking!) presented the evening. Ravinder Bhogal and Anthony Evans chatted & cooked during the first half then Bryn Williams & Alyn Williams took their turn in the second half.
We enjoyed listening to their tales of the morning spent fishing (Ravinder & Anthony) diving (Bryn) & Alyn driving along the M4 ! We learnt about whelks, pollock, rock salmon, skate, fish curry & foraging for foods such as sorrel & sea beet. Our friend Yun Hider http://www.mountainfood.org/ forages for foods in and around Pembrokeshire for chef Alyn Williams and was both at the dinner and in the audience.
We came away from the evening well fed & a little bit more informed about fish!
