Food festivals in Cornwall 2014

Cornwall is a paradise for epicureans. In the county’s eclectic mix of restaurants, pubs and delis you can find no end of fine fodder. Perhaps because of its distance from the rest of the UK, Cornwall is full of small, high quality producers that, between them, have driven a culinary renaissance.

All corners of the county host annual food festivals that celebrate not only Cornish produce, but Cornish talent. As well as the growers and artisan makers that flourish in Cornwall, there is an abundant crop of first class chefs. It’s the passion and imagination of the people in Cornwall that make its food tradition so rich.

Here’s our pick of the best food festivals in Cornwall this year. We hope you can get to at least one of them.
