The Great Cornish Food Festival Will Return This September %7C Group Travel News

This September, The Great Cornish Food Festival will return to Cornwall and welcome two new headliners – April Bloomfield of Spotted Pig, NYC and Tom Adams of Pitt Cue, London.

The festival will take place between the 23rd and the 25th of September and will feature 100 different food experts and chefs, all in attendance to celebrate the food and drink that hails from the seaside town.

The two chefs April Bloomfield and Tom Adams will appear at the festival in celebration of a new venture they’re working on together in Cornwall.

The pair have come together to create a new guesthouse and dining room in an old Georgian dairy farm near Launceston, East Cornwall.

They hope to use the location as a base for workshops, curing rooms, producer events and what they’re terming ‘pig-based merriment’ throughout the year.

April and Tom will also be joined on stage by renowned local farmer and master butcher, Phillip Warren, who is known to supply meat to well-known chefs and restaurants in London and Cornwall.

Celebrated seafood chef Nathan Outlaw will also deliver a timetable of masterclasses, cooking challenges and tastings over the three dates of the festival.

Groups attending the free festival will find it based at an all-weather location in the centre of Truro – Cornwall’s only city – and will find brewers, bakers, butchers, cheesemakers and chocolatiers exhibiting.

There will also be plenty of local produce on offer, from artisan pies to stone-baked pizza, and freshly brewed coffee and Cornish pasties.

An initial list of exhibitors has been revealed already and includes stalls from Baker Tom, Cornish Cheese Co., Cornish Edible Insects, Real Food Box and The Hidden Kitchen among others.

Details of the full line-up of masterclasses, demonstrations and tastings will be announced in the following weeks.

About The Great Cornish Food Festival

The idea for The Great Cornish Food Festival came about thirteen years ago when Steve Whittingham, who helps run the festival, stood at Lemon Quay, Truro, and had what he calls ‘a light-bulb moment’ that led to the birth of the festival.

Ever since, the festival has welcomed around 40,000 visitors from all over the UK each year, and generates over £3 million for the Cornish economy.
