Top chef's cheers for double festival.
He took to the catwalk at Wonderwool Wales and headed up the list of chefs who demonstrated recipes at the inaugural Mid Wales Mouthful festival, both at Builth Wells.
Later Mr Worral-Thompson praised the wonderful diversity of quality food and drink being produced in Powys and its neighbouring counties.
"I'm passionate about fresh, seasonal, quality ingredients so I wholeheartedly support the festival's celebration of local food from the region's best producers," he said.
The festival double-header was arranged in order to sustain Wonderwool Wales, which is traditionally run alongside the Royal Welsh Smallholders Festival.
Organisers Glasu, the Powys development agency, launched Wonderwool with Objective One money.
But, with funding due to run out, it was re-arranged as a standalone festival in order to generate extra gate receipts.
Some 5,000 visitors attended the two festivals.
