Lisa showcases market’s festive fayre
CHRISTMAS shoppers enjoyed some festive fayre at Carmarthen market thanks to chef Lisa Fearn.
Lisa, who runs Pumpkin Patch, used fresh, local ingredients from the market to make some tantalising treats including a fillet of beef with veg and mulled cider.
Council sustainability officer Tina Brice was also there to give residents some handy hints and tips on how they could reduce their festive food waste.
Radio Carmarthenshire’s Tommo also joined in the fun to broadcast the event to the rest of Carmarthenshire.
Figures show that in a normal month, a family of four throws away £50 worth of food. But given the size of the typical Christmas shopping trolley, the amount of money we waste during December is likely to be much more. A few simple changes however can make a big difference to your festive food bills and the environment.
Lisa said: “The market has everything you need for you Christmas celebrations, it’s fresh and locally produced and all under one roof too!”
The event was organised by Carmarthenshire County Council. For information on how to reduce your Christmas food waste visit www.carmarthenshire.gov.uk
