Newydd Cooks at Hawthorn High School

If you came to see us over the summer at either the Big Welsh Bite in Pontypridd, the Vale of Glamorgan Agricultural show, or at Newtown Food Festival, then you have likely heard of Newydd Cooks.

We spent the summer collecting hundreds of recipes from you and set to work creating a community inspired cookbook. We had the arduous task of creating a shortlist of 40 dishes from all the recipes we collected. Of those, 22 were chosen to be cooked by pupils of Hawthorn Highschool. An expert judging panel then decided on their favourite 10 dishes that would feature in our Newydd Cookbook, along with some additional recipes submitted by staff and partners.
