Enthusiasm: Call for Participants

Calling all bakers/cooks/brewers/foodies!

Enthusiasm is in part going to look at the ways in which cultures adapt and evolve as a result of migration – a kind of cross pollination of different traditions. One way in which this happens is via food, which we would like to incorporate into the event (in a very relaxed way).

We would really like to hear from people who have recently moved to south Wales, their descendants, or people who have lived here all their lives, and who would be interested in contributing to the event.


We are looking for:

  • People who would like to share food traditions from their home countries – e.g. bread-making, festive food, food decoration or food sharing traditions
  • People who have adapted recipes or customs as a result of coming to Wales or from living/travelling in other countries

We will have access to basic kitchen equipment and have a small budget for materials and travel

If you would like to take part, or for more information please email Stefhan Caddick: stefhancaddick@gmail.com or send us a message via facebook

We’d love to hear from you!
