Food Festivals in Cornwall - 3 of the Biggest

There is no denying that the traditional food culture in Cornwall is strong - and this is highlighted and celebrated every year with a collection of food festivals which aim to showcase the excellent work chefs and local producers do to create such high quality goods. So what food festivals are worth visiting in 2013?

St. Ives Food and Drink Festival

This has, in recent years, gone from strength to strength and is believed to be the only festival in the UK held entirely on the beach. This year it will be based on Porthminster beach on the 18th - 19th May. You can sample produce from all sectors of Cornish life, and is one of best places to go to see what the county has to offer.

Newlyn Fish Festival

The world renowned Newlyn Fish Festival, which is the biggest of its kind in the UK, returns on the August bank holiday this year to demonstrate all aspects of fishing and the lives of fishermen to visitors. Education plays a big part - and some of the highlights include dramatic demonstrations by a number of chefs, talks by historians, a pilchard barbecue and a large amount of local stalls.

Cornwall Food and Drink

For its tenth anniversary in 2013, the Truro based Cornwall Food and Drink returns to Lemon Quay to celebrate the very best of local food. New for 2013 is the pop-up restaurant, and a chance for some of the many visitors over the weekend of 28th - 29th September to sample for themselves a wide range of world class Cornish cuisine.

Arguably food has transformed how Cornwall is seen by a lot of the world. The area is now deemed to be Britain’s Foodie Capital, and the culinary renaissance is bringing a new type of traveler to the area determined to seek out the best produce the area has to offer.
