Update: Boast Your Roast has tweeted “sad news, we’ve had to pull out of Hay festival….but we’ll be back with this amazing combo soon…”
There will be a new ‘pop up’ restaurant launching at the Hay Festival. ‘Boast Your Roast’ will serve up locally sourced food in a bespoke tent with 100 covers in the Pennard Orchard campsite which is a 5 minute walk from the festival site.
It promises to be an upmarket affair with the kitchen run by 2010 Masterchef finalist Matt Edwards (St. John, Hix) along with Christine Veronez (Cellar de Can Roca/Roca Brothers, Barcelona). The Maitre’D will be Elizabeth Tomes of Vinopolis.
Lunchtime fare will include a charcuterie board of locally smoked meats and pints of prawns served with aioli. The main event will take place in the evenings with spit roast suckling pig, Welsh salt marsh lamb, Herefordshire beef and original seasonal vegetarian options on the menu.
