Autumn apples, cheese, oysters, and ale.

Byline: Nathan Bevan

AS British Food Fortnight continues (to October 4) , food festivals are on the menu again this week.

Food takes centre stage at these great events, so get ready to discover the new, the traditional and the exotic at many of Wales' food festivals.

The Great British Cheese Festival takes place in Cardiff this weekend - so go over to Cardiff Castle where you can taste, try and buy more than 450 British Cheeses. See www.thecheeseweb.com to find out all about it.

The focus will be on apples at the National Trust's Llanerchaeron during October.

A fantastic range of apples from the Llanerchaeron Walled Garden will be on display from October 24 to November 1 and on October 29 there will be an apple cookery demonstration when Gareth Richards returns to Llanerchaeron for his annual apple extravaganza. Sweet and savoury delights are prepared in his own unique style from 2pm.

The 12th Anglesey Oyster Festival gets underway on October 10 and 11. See www.angleseyoysterfestival.com If you like real ale and mountain biking, then join the two for the Real Ale Wobble, which takes place in Llanwrtyd Wells on 14-15 November.

Cycling through the Cambrian Mountains, then quaff ale made at the Heart of Wales Brewery in Llanwrtyd Wells.

This event marks the start of the Mid Wales Beer Festival and is non-competitive with routes of 15, 25 or 35 miles on each day.

Ever wondered what the difference is between a shaggy ink cap and a puff ball? Learn all about fungi at the Fungus Foray at the Cwm Carn Forest Drive in Caerphilly on October 3. See www.forestry.gov.uk/wales for details.
