The Great Cornish Food Festival – the largest event anywhere dedicated 100% to Cornish food and drink – is back for its 12th year on Truro’s Lemon Quay from Friday 25th to Sunday 27th September.

With a packed timetable of hands-on masterclasses, sampling and kids’ activities, and loyal supporter GWR taking the headline sponsor spot for the second year, get ready to enjoy three days of tastings, culinary titbits and food-loving fun for all ages.

Celebrated seafood chef Nathan Outlaw is confirmed to host the grand finale on Sunday afternoon, following a tantalising programme of masterclasses and demonstrations across two different stages, in company with a host of Cornwall’s top chefs and food experts.

Visit the festival all three days and you’ll be treated to an array of demonstrations on everything from filleting fish to wine tasting, AGA-cookery to coffee brewing, and as always, everything on sale from festival exhibitors will have been produced in Cornwall.

Around 50 producers and more than 40 chefs and food experts are taking part, with an exhibitor line-up that includes everyone from household Cornish names like Rodda’s and Sharp’s Brewery, to artisan producers such as Fowey Valley Cider and Buttermilk Confectionery, just some of the businesses making serious waves across the UK food scene.
