Her book, Celebrating Culture in Myddfai, A Traveller’s Cook Book, was launched at the Myddfai Visitors’ Centre, near Llandovery. The book is based on the ancient food, herbal and cultural heritage of the village and accompanied a Celebrating Culture Project, involving a bilingual Heritage Cookery course and the creation of a new menu for the Myddfai Café.
The project was supported by Menter Bro Dinefwr and has provided access to Welsh cultural events to people of all ages in rural areas in Carmarthenshire. Myddfai nestles in the Carmarthenshire Vans and is now the Welsh home of HRH the Prince of Wales. He opened the Myddfai Centre in 2011.
Celebrating Culture in Myddfai, A Traveller’s Cook Book,is available from the Myddfai Visitors’ Centre at £6.50.
The course will be repeated as a series of day courses, starting on March 8th at the Myddfai Visitors’ Centre. It is becoming an important food destination for tourists visiting Llyn y fan in the Brecon Beacon National Park in Carmarthenshire.
Also in the picture, seated is Dilwen Davies of Llandybie.
