TV chef proves a big crowd-puller
CELEBRITY chef Omar Allibhoy was among one of the biggest crowd-pullers for the four-day Mumbles Oyster and Seafood Festival.
The Spanish chef, a regular on Saturday morning TV shows, put together plates of tapas at the Southend Gardens event which drew to a close on Sunday.
Hundreds attended the festival which grew from last year's inaugural event.
It is now hoped to build on its success and make it bigger again in 2014.
Other highlights of the festival organised by the Mumbles Development Trust included live sea shanty music, tasters from local chefs, a pirate circus, workshop and a produce market.
Teacher Kate Higgins from Blackpill, who attended the cookery show, said it had been a huge hit with the audience.
She added: " It is great to see something like this on our doorstep. It is exactly what is needed to pull in people to the area and I hope we see a lot more like it in the future."
