Cornish food festivals to visit this autumn

Date Posted: 24/08/2012

Visit Cornwall has announced a feast of food festivals for this autumn. So for you foodies out there, why not combine a group holiday with a visit to one of the following?

Boscastle Food, Arts & Crafts Festival

The Boscastle Food, Arts & Crafts Festival will be held over the first weekend in October (6th and 7th).

The festival features ten Cornish chefs, including high-rising stars such as Nathan Outlaw, owner of two Michelin Stars from the St Enodoc Hotel; Andy Appleton from Fifteen Cornwall; Paul Harwood from Rick Stein’s St.Petroc’s Bistro and Adrian Oliver from Margot’s.

Group travel organisers can choose from a host of stalls, selling and sampling Cornish food and drink, and original arts and crafts, located within marquees in the harbour side village.

Falmouth Oyster Festival

Special guest Monty Halls, fresh from BBC Two’s Fisherman’s Apprentice, will host an evening at Falmouth Oyster Festival.

The festival promises a Cornish cornucopia of stalls brimming with oysters, seafood, wine and other delicacies, and takes place from 11th to 14th October.

Timed to celebrate the start of the oyster season, the event focuses on the Falmouth Working Boats and oyster punts which trawl the natural oyster beds of the surrounding area to harvest the prized local native oysters.

Cookery demonstrations with top local chefs and live music add to the festival atmosphere, with the opportunity to savour a variety of seafood and other dishes washed down with local ales and specially matched wines.

Cornwall Food and Drink Live!

A brand new concept hits the road later this year, with its first stop at Brunel’s Old Station in Bristol, on 3rd and 4th November.

Live! aims to highlight just why Cornwall has gained such a culinary reputation and become a destination for food lovers from far and wide.

The event features top food and drinks producers and a host of admired Cornish chefs.
