The seven Welsh restaurants awarded Michelin stars for the 2022 Guide was a Wales Online headline that took me by surprise yesterday.
Let's dig out the runners and riders, maybe scare up a website or two and see which might be in range next time I am back in Cardiff visiting mum. (That said I haven't seen her in the flesh since before Christmas as assorted COVID regulations, alarms and infections have conspired to exclude me from the home. This can't go on for much longer though, surely.)
Ynyshir - Machynlleth, Powys - two Michelin stars but too far away
Home by James Sommerin - Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan - one Michelin star https://homeatpenarth.co.uk/ is very possible.
SY23 - Aberystwyth, Ceredigion - one Michelin star too far
Walnut Tree - Llanddewi Skirrid, Monmouthshire - one Michelin star I remember going there once with the family years ago.
Sosban and the Old Butchers - Menai Bridge, Anglesey - one Michelin star too far
Beach House - Oxwich Bay, Swansea - one Michelin star possible if we used Margam as a base I guess.
The Whitebrook - Monmouthshire - one Michelin star possible I guess, but a bit of a trek.
The winner then is Home by James Sommerin. It would be good to combine their surprise tasting menu with a visit to mum once Ty Enfys decide to let me in again.
