Book Your Holiday in Cornwall to Coincide With the Food and Drink

If you’re looking for the best time to book a cottage deal in Cornwall, why not plan your break to coincide with the county’s food and drink festival?

The event takes place in cathedral city – Truro – between September 24th and 26th and could be a fantastic part of your holiday in Cornwall, bringing locals together along with tourists and professionals from the culinary world at the city’s central Lemon Quay Piazza.

Activities scheduled to take place include cook-offs, cookery lessons and cocktail-making demonstrations. At the market square, you’ll be able to catch sight of professional chefs whipping up mouth-watering morsels and pick up tips to put into practice when you return to your country holiday home in the evening.

Among the chefs in action will be winner of the south-west heat of BBC TV’s Great British Menu, Michelin-starred Nathan Outlaw. If you’d prefer some light entertainment, why not watch amateurs battle it out, when the BBC Radio Cornwall presenters compete against one another and the clock in a live cooking challenge?

Youngsters will also compete against each other in the kitchen when the Young Chefs’ Challenge takes place, with two teams of children aged 11 or under putting their skills to the test.

If you’re hoping to pick up some specialist advice, why not take some lessons at Skill School? Professional chefs will be giving expert cooking tuition that could make you the envy of all your friends back home. Or you might like to pick up some tips on how to make the best mixed drinks at the Cornish Cocktail Championships. Other activities going on at the event include the Greatest Coffee Morning, which is a nationwide appeal by cancer charity Macmillan.
