IT’S finals time of the popular S4C cookery contest Pwy 'di Bos y Gegin? and after all the sweat, blood and tears, there are only two teams left standing with a Coleg Ceredigion judge set to decide the winner.

It'll be a case of South versus North on Tuesday, July 17 at 8pm to find out who can stand the heat in the kitchen with the ultimate prize a break in one of Europe's culinary capitals, Barcelona in Catalonia.

Two teams are hotly pursuing this prize; the Harries family from the Pontypridd area and the Llaeth a Llechi (Milk and Slate) family from Anglesey and Deiniolen.

One of the people who has been with the nine contesting families in the show from starters to pudding is culinary judge Huw Morgan, a professional catering lecturer at Coleg Ceredigion.

"It's been quite a journey, but I've really enjoyed it," said Huw, 37, from Sarnau, near Llangrannog.

"It's been great fun being with the contestants but there has been some stress along the way too.

“The two teams in the final deserve to be there: they work well as teams and understand what good cooking means."

Huw is accustomed with being a culinary judge on television, having previously adjudicated on the S4C celebrity cooking series Pryd o Sêr.

"I am used to judging people's meals here at the college, it's all part of my work. This was somewhat different and I was lucky enough to have such a top fellow judge in Bethan Stevens, co-owner of the Michelin starred Menai Bridge restaurant Sosban & The Old Butchers."

For 10 years, Huw worked in the kitchen of the Urdd camp in Llangrannog, serving up meals for scores of hungry children.

Huw, who has also worked at the Emlyn Arms, Cheltenham horse races and the Penbontbren restaurant, added, "I have seen a great improvement in general in the quality of served food over the years.

“More and more establishments are using quality local produce, especially Welsh lamb and beef, and that makes a huge difference."
