Rhug Estate is serving up a host of tasty collaborations to celebrate Saint David’s Day next week. Through the Welsh Government’s Food & Drink Wales programme Rhug has teamed up with a world renowned top chef to offer an unique organic chicken recipe and is also taking part in the #LoveWalesLoveTaste campaign to introduce new customers to the Estate’s online shop and St David’s Day luxury food and drink box.
Top British Chef, Hywel Jones, the Executive Chef at the Luckham Park hotel in Wiltshire, has created a St David’s Day recipe using the finest Welsh produce, including Rhug’s organic Chicken. The recipe for ‘Organic Chicken Two Ways’ is available to download below.
Hywel Jones said, “Wales is home to some of the UK’s finest food and drink producers. What sets these men and women apart is the passion they have for their craft which is evident in the quality of their produce. As a Welsh chef I feel very fortunate and privileged to be able to showcase such outstanding produce in my cooking.”
The Welsh Government’s Food & Drink Wales programme created the Fine Food Cluster initiative to help promote Wales’ producers and products. Through the initiative, chefs like Hywel Jones are introduced to Wales’ high quality food and drink, including Rhug Estate’s organic meat.
Jayne Jones, Fine Food Cluster Manager, said, “The delicious dish that Hywel has created highlights the wealth and diversity of ingredients we have on our doorstep in Wales. Through working with the Chefs’ Forum we are able to connect Welsh producers with a network of top chefs ensuring that the food we grow and produce in this country gets showcased in Britain’s best restaurants.”
Rhug Estate is also taking part in Food and Drink Wales’ #LoveWalesLoveTaste campaign over St David’s Day weekend to help spread the word about the wonderful food and drink Wales has to offer.
