The seasonal transition from summer to autumn not only brings with it changing colours and cooler temperatures but it also means a new season of produce is ready to be harvested in Cornwall and for us to celebrate in new seasonal dishes.
1000 Mouths Feast
This autumn marks the return 1000 Mouths Feast hosted at Nancarrow Farm. The four day festival celebrates sustainable farming with some of best producers and chefs in the South West. Taking place from 4 – 6 October on Nancarrow’s beautiful Farm near Truro, the event is a real highlight of the year in Cornwall’s foodie diary and this year marks their 20th anniversary as an organic farm.
The weekend hosts a variety of food events. By day guests can enjoy street food stalls, wild walks, fire pit demos and topical talks about farming, soil health and Cornwall’s wildlife. But the main highlight of the weekend are the intimate dinners and feast nights where hundreds of people gather in the farms Rusty Barn and Old Mill to enjoy dinners and feasts that showcases Cornwall’s finest producers and chefs. The feast (as well as the rest of the festival) focuses on a nose to tail dining experience, something our head chef Adam Banks is a big advocate of, where one organically reared bullock from the farm is used to feast 1000 mouths over the weekend, hence the festival’s name.
We’re excited to be hosting the first feast night on Friday 4 October held in the Rusty Barn. Adam and the team will be cooking an Italian inspired harvest feast with produce from One Field Farm and other fantastic local ingredients including heritage tomatoes, squash and pumpkin caponata and of course the beef shin from Nancarrow.
