Pop-up restaurant to visit Senghenydd
5:00pm Tuesday 17th July 2012 in Campaign news
A COMMUNITY centre will be transformed into a 'Pop Up' restaurant to showcase produce from the local area.
This Friday July 20 will see Senghenydd Community Centre transformed into a restaurant that will showcase local produce.
Residents will be treated to a three-course from the pop-up restaurant chef, Carlo Fraccalvieri.
He said: "It's a really sociable event, with a venue at the heart of the community being transformed for one night into a showcase of local food and produce.
"People are able to sample what's on offer, and realise that they don't have to go to supermarkets to buy affordable good quality food.
"This type of restaurant is an idea from the Caerffili Cwm a Mynydd Rural Development Plan Team. The team's aim is to provide a service that doesn't already exist in local villages and communities, and to foster the development of local businesses and producers."
Pop Up Restaurants will be springing up across the borough throughout the year, and will involve the whole community, with youth organisations like the Senghenydd Youth Drop-in Centre team (SYDIC) helping out.
If you would like more information on future pop-up restaurants, or would like to host one, please contact the RDP Team on 01443 838632.
Meals are free of charge but spaces are limited.
