We’re welcoming back Cavalier Cwtch and their taste of Malaysia to the Grangetown World Market on Saturday 10th March (11am-3pm) at St Patrick’s RC Primary School car park. It was a big hit back in December. So we asked Ruth Hanson to give us the low-down on what to expect this time.
Tell us a bit about yourselves?
We are Roger and Ruth Hanson, we have three children who are quickly growing up. During the week we both work supporting young people into training and employment
What’s the story of Cavalier Cwtch – when/how did you start?
Roger and I have always lived cooking and particularly enjoyed South East Asian food. We visited Malaysia and fell in love with the diversity of their country and this diversity is reflected in their food. We first traded on August bank holiday 2017 and it has grown quickly since, we have been back to Malaysia to bring back even more ideas.
You were at the last Grangetown Market, what did you like about it?
We enjoyed the friendly vibe and the clear community feeling. We were made to feel very welcome by the organisers and the visitors.
What will you be cooking for this next one?
We will be bringing back our Chicken Rendang and seasoned fries, we will also be introducing our new dish Crispy Tandoori Chicken Paratha and as long as stocks allow we will be serving the vegetarian option Crispy Tandoori Jackfruit (both pictured above).
If there’s one dish you’d especially recommend, what would it be?
Our signature dish is our Chicken Rendang it is a staple of Malaysia (pictured top).
What’s your feeling about the “shop local” and street market philosophy?
We believe it is a positive thing that helps generate a community spirit and support smaller expert traders producing fresh products. This is how shopping operates in Malaysia.
