Chef Demos

The chefs for this year’s line – up include:

  • Alex Rees, Head Chef at the Falcondale Hotel

Alex Rees, Head Chef at The Falcondale, Lampeter

Alex Rees, Head Chef at the Falcondale Hotel

From the Amman valley Alex joins the team at The Falcondale as a head chef with a number of years’ experience from well-known establishments, including Y Polyn, Corran Resort, Plough & Harrow, Holm House and Plough Rhosmaen. As a chef he enjoys the creative aspect of food presentation, but understands that this has to be secondary to flavour and the use of quality ingredients.

Alex is looking forward to talking and meeting the public during the Lampeter Food Festival, and hopes to encourage the use of the plentiful Welsh larder that we have on our doorstep. “Not only do you get to see the produce at the festival, but also have ideas on how to cook and prepare them” says Alex.

The Falcondale is a 4 star country house hotel that has been awarded 2AA rosettes for 9 consecutive years, and is located only 1 mile outside of Lampeter. “It is a pleasure to be able to support the festival again this year as it grows and establishes itself on the calendar – well worth a visit” comments Lisa Hutton the owner of The Falcondale.
