The Culinary Association of Wales (CAW) hosted delegates from 20 countries at the World Association of Chefs’ Societies (WACS) European conference at the Celtic Manor Resort. A £83.7million project to build an international convention centre at the Resort is due for completion in 2019 and will be able to cater for banquets with up to 3,500 guests. Arwyn Watkins, CAW president, said: “The Celtic Manor Resort would like the Culinary Association of Wales to consider, in the future, hosting the WorldChefs congress, possibly in 2022 or 2024.” The food and drink sector in Wales employs 223,000 people, contributes £17billion a year to the economy and is more than half way towards achieving the Welsh Government’s target of 30% growth or an extra £7billion by 2020. www.welshculinaryassociation.com NEW GUIDANCE ON GLUTEN-FREE CATERING >> Coeliac UK has launched new guidance ‘Catering gluten-free: how to get it right’, produced in collaboration with the Food Standards Agency.
