This article is old - Published: Friday, Sep 30th, 2016

One of Newport’s most sophisticated restaurants, Mojo The FoodBar, has become the latest sponsor of the Tiny Rebel Newport Food and Drink Festival 2016. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Mojo is at the forefront of the food and bar scene representing quality, contrasts, art, creativity and the culture of cuisine. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Ben Periam, Culinary Development Chef at Mojo, will be hosting one of the chef demonstrations at the festival. Using high quality, fresh ingredients is important to Ben – so important that he and his team use local foragers and the menu features local meat, fish and eggs. His commitment to using the freshest local ingredients allows Ben and the team at Mojo to create new seasonal dishes to tantalise their diners. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Mojo, at 1 Clarence Place, Newport, is proud of its award-winning freshly made cocktails and its extensively stocked bar featuring no less than 182 gins. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Mojo will have its Dog ‘N’ Dough pop up restaurant on High Street positioned near Tiny Rebel from 9am to 5pm serving its distinctive, delicious American hot dog topped with mouth-watering 24-hr baked pulled pork and other unique home-made toppings. A range of American lagers, craft beers and soft drinks will also be available. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The bar restaurant will also have its pop up cocktail bar with Mojo’s celebrated mixologist, head bar tender, Andrej Madaras, on hand to concoct a full range of luscious cocktails. Mojo Ice lollies with a real difference will also be on sale. All food and cocktails are priced just £5 on the day. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Seng Koh, of Mojo The FoodBar, said: “The Newport Food Festival provides us all with a wonderful opportunity to come together to celebrate everything that is good about our city. We’re delighted to once again be able to play our part on the day.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Tiny Rebel Newport Food and Drink Festival 2016 takes place on Saturday 1 October and will boast around 80 stalls, the return of the popular Teenchef competition and expert chef demonstrations. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The main activities will centre on High Street and Newport Market, but this year’s festival will also boast a range of fringe events, from a Friday evening festival supper at the Ridgeway Bar and Kitchen, to a treasure hunt, outdoor chef demonstrations and children’s competitions at Friars Walk, all made possible thanks to the support of local businesses. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

There will also be live music and street entertainment on the day, ranging from Samba and Rock, to face painting and magic. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

This year’s exhibitors will be ready to fill your fridge with delights including meats, cheeses, spices and preserves, breads, pastries, cakes and crepes, to pies, pasties, oils and sauces. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

When you’ve worked up an appetite exploring the offering and activities, there will be plenty of refuelling choice – Asian, Greek, Italian or Welsh, burgers, pizza, paella or seafood, and of course ice cream for when the sun (hopefully!) comes out. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

And we promise to keep you refreshed whether your tipple is beer, ale, wine, cider, spirits or something soft. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
