The Wright Taste is a five-part BBC Wales documentary series that started in late October 2008.

The title is a pun on the name of food critic and restaurateur Simon Wright, who featured in the series.[1] Wright was a partner in the restaurant Y Polyn in South West Wales. Y Polyn also features on cookery show The Hairy Bikers' Food Tour of Britain.

Wright was formerly editor of the AA Restaurant Guide and was Restaurant Consultant for Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares.[1] In 2010 he won a "Wales the True Taste Champion" award from the Welsh Assembly Government for supporting the Welsh food and drink industry.[2]

Radio series[edit]

Wright later presented Wales on the Menu, a BBC Radio Wales six-part food series.

The Wright Taste: Recipes and Other Stories[edit]

A book was also published by Wales-based Gomer Press. It features recipes from the series along with stories of Wright's experiences tracking his journey from field to fork.
