Roadshow gives visitors chance to meet the meat

red-meatTHE WELSH Red Meat Roadshow will be stopping off at Oakwood Theme Park on August 16 and 17. 

The Pembrokeshire attraction is playing host to the roadshow which aims to encourage people from Wales and further afield to eat a healthy balanced diet and show how easy and convenient it is to cook with red meat. The Roadshow features cooking demonstrations using Welsh Lamb, Welsh Beef and pork from Wales. It is also an opportunity to provide spectators with healthy eating advice and information about the clean, green production methods employed by farmers in Wales. Samples of the fresh food as well as copies of a glossy souvenir recipe booklet, Out and About, will be distributed to onlookers. Oakwood Theme Park’s Clare Stansfield said: “We are delighted to be hosting the roadshow and looking forward to sampling the best in Welsh red meat. “Wales has a fantastic reputation for finest quality local produce and this is a great way of highlighting just what is available to people. “Our newly-opened Oak Tree Restaurant Bar and Grill showcases the best in local produce and we are passionate about promoting Welsh food and drink to a wider audience,” she added. Now in its second year, the twoyear project is funded by the Rural Development Plan 2007-13 and run by Welsh red meat promotion agency Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales (HCC). The Roadshow has visited a number of locations and events including the Canoe Slalom World Cup, Cardiff; Bodnant Food Centre, Conwy; Elvis Festival, Porthcawl; Abercycling Festival, Aberystwyth; Woodfest; and the Senior Open Championship at the Royal Porthcawl Golf Club.
