CORNWALL Food & Drink Festival will celebrate its tenth anniversary in Truro from September 27 to 29 this year, with a line- up jam-packed with new restaurants, fresh features and delicious local produce.
Truro's Lemon Quay will transform into foodie heaven for three days of eating, drinking, shopping and entertainment as the festival celebrates the food revolution that has transformed Cornwall over the last ten years into one of the greatest places to eat in the country, if not the world.
Demonstrating just why the county's thriving food scene is loved from far and wide, this is one food event not to be missed - and it's free.
New for 2013, street-food style 'pop-ups' from a selection of Cornwall's top restaurants will be serving a taster of their restaurant's mouthwatering signature dishes in a feature called The Croust Kitchens.
Have a taste of Michelin-starred Nathan Outlaw's new Outlaw's Fish Kitchen, Truro's own Bustopher's and soon-to-open Mustard & Rye, along with Olga Polizzi's Hotel Tresanton and Kit Davis from The Castle at Bude, among others.
Meanwhile, top chefs will entertain and share their secrets on two stages - the Chefs' Theatre and Croust Bar Masterclass Theatre. Playing host to the county's highest-profile chefs and foodie personalities, the exciting line-up - opened by Nathan Outlaw - illustrates the diversity of produce and culinary expertise in the county.
And although we might not like to think about it yet, Christmas will soon be upon us.
What better place to start your Christmas shopping than at a festival surrounded by an array of Cornwall's top artisan producers? Little ones won't be forgotten either. Children can get foodie and creative in the Funky Food Zone; pasty crimping with Proper Cornish, dipping fruit kebabs in cream with Rodda's clotted cream and concocting ice cream sundaes with Kelly's Of Cornwall - and being in with the chance of winning a year's supply of ice cream.
Cornwall Food & Drink will also be revealing their new and exciting book - The Great Cornish Food Book: a collection of recipes, tales and morsels from the ocean, fields and clifftops of Cornwall - which will be bursting with inspirational Cornish food stories and recipes for recreating your favourite Cornish dishes at home.
