Wright's Independent Food Emporium

a food store and a little bit more... ...Food with the 4 J's first outing took place on Tuesday 12th June 2012. 

We chose to go to Wrights Independent Food Emporium at Nantgaredig between Carmarthen & Llandeilo.

We knew Simon & Maryann Wright from their time at Y Polyn & Simon's help & involvement with the Narberth Food Festival (Narberth is where all the 4 J's currently live)

We started off with some great apple juice from Crickhowell and all chose a different lunch..from Cothi Valley Goats cheese & salad leaves, smoked haddock & leek pie, raclette cheese & new potatoes and a pea & mint chowder. All very delicious. 

We all indulged in a little food shopping. One of the 4 J's bought a pie to take home in an enamel tin. You can pay a deposit on the tin and can return it next time and get another pie. You can do a similar thing with bottles of wine straight out the barrel & olive or rapeseed oil the same way by paying a deposit on the bottles which can be reused.

They kindly stored our shopping for us whilst we popped into Llandeilo to do a bit of retail therapy at Peppercorn the kitchen shop & Toast the clothes shop.

We paid our second visit in one day back to Wright's to have a well deserved pot of tea and a selection of cakes, including a slice of lardy cake!
