#AceFoodNews – Dec.03: Chef Bryn Williams explores recipe archives


Renowned Welsh chef, Bryn Williams, will be helping to kick off the Explore Your Archive campaign in Wales at Denbighshire Archives in Ruthin Gaol on Friday 18 November 2016

Hailing from Denbigh in North Wales, Bryn Williams learnt to appreciate food and its origins from an early age.

He has worked in some of the most prestigious kitchens in London and is now the Chef Patron of Odette’s, taking over the property in October 2008.

He has also recently opened Bryn Williams at Porth Eirias, a beach-front Bistro, Café & Bar on the North Wales Coast.

As part of this year’s campaign in Wales the focus will be on ‘food’ and a series of short films in English and Welsh have been created featuring historians and archivists looking at nutrition in prisons and workhouses, jam-making and bygone remedies using some weird and wonderful ingredients!

A variety of free events at archives across Wales will be on offer from talks, film-showings, tours and trails to children’s craft activities, story boxes and creative workshops.

Exhibitions on a range of themes will also be on display ranging from textiles, travel and holidays to rugby, railways and tithe maps.
