Taste & Travel - - Dispatches -

Mark your cal­en­dar to visit the whim­si­cal Ital­ian-style vil­lage of Port­meirion in North Wales dur­ing the an­nual Port­meirion Food & Craft Fair from De­cem­ber 1–3, 2017. From sam­pling lo­cal ale brewed by Cwrw Llyn (housed in a con­verted cow­shed), watch­ing cook­ing demon­stra­tions or shop­ping for ar­ti­sanal crafts, visi­tors will en­joy ex­plor­ing the candy-hued tourist vil­lage. Built by the imag­i­na­tive ar­chi­tect Sir Clough Wil­liams-El­lis be­tween 1925 and 1974, Port­meirion com­bines a stun­ning set­ting on its own pri­vate penin­sula and ro­man­tic ar­chi­tec­ture with a healthy dose of quirky ec­cen­tric­ity. Din­ers can choose from an as­sort­ment of eater­ies in­clud­ing the art deco Ho­tel Port­meirion Restau­rant, where award-win­ning chef Mark Thread­g­ill whips up in­no­va­tive fare that em­pha­sizes re­gional pro­duce such as seared king scal­lops or laven­der and honey roasted duck breast.
