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’ve had a fantastic first day at #BigWelshBite and met some lovely people who got involved with our #newyddcooks activities, as well as some fruit & veg!! Thanks to @cook_together1 for all your culinary skills today! pic.twitter.com/EsCWWDOsKM

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.
