Food from the oceans comes to Cardiff!

Food from the oceans comes to Cardiff!

Thousands of people came to Cardiff Bay over three days, 14th to 16th July, to enjoy the annual Cardiff Food and Drink Festival.

Food from the Oceans was the theme of a programme of events hosted at the Norwegian Church.  This open and free programme of events was the result of collaboration between the Cardiff and Bergen Hubs, together with SAPEA (Science Advice for Policy by European Academies).  We worked closely with other partners, including the SAM (Science Advice Mechanism) Unit, the Learned Society of Wales, the Hordaland County in Norway and Cardiff University.

Especially popular was the Food from the Oceans stall, serving a variety of seafood from Bergen, served by Norwegian catering students and chef Roberto Tanaia.

The highlight of a full programme of public talks on the theme of Food from the Oceans was a reception to mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of the restoration of the Norwegian Church in Cardiff Bay, supported by the Royal Norwegian Embassy and hosted in partnership with the Welsh Norwegian Society.
