Fifteen Cornwall announces Winter Fayre line up
Later this month, Fifteen Cornwall’s Winter Fayre will put a new generation of Cornwall’s chefs centre stage.
The free to attend event, which is sponsored by Great Western Railway, takes place on Saturday 28 November from 9.30am to 3.30pm in the Extreme Academy car park at Watergate Bay, and will include chef demos, food producer stalls and children’s entertainment.
Demos will start from 10.30am and the line up includes:
– Elsie Pinniger of Gilmore’s Newquay with sommelier Debbie Warner.
– Rick Toogood and Rob Brinham from Prawn on the Lawn, Padstow.
– Elly Owen, sommelier from Fifteen Cornwall, with Trevibban Mill Vineyard & Orchards talking wine.
As well as demos to watch, the event offers visitors the chance to meet some of Cornwall’s fantastic suppliers and producers, and to stock up on both fresh ingredients and foodie gifts for Christmas.
Matthew Thomson, chief executive of Fifteen Cornwall and Cornwall Food Foundation, said: “Many of our own fantastic suppliers will be at the Winter Fayre, and it is a great opportunity to chat to them and find out more about their produce and what’s in season.
“The event is to host over 20 different stalls, including seafood from Matthew Stevens, meat products from Primrose Herd, Cornish Duck Company and Deli Farm Charcuterie, and breads from Da Bara Bakery amongst them. The Eden Project will also be showcasing a selection of gifts suitable for Christmas.”
Gordon Lawrence, previously head sommelier at Fifteen Cornwall, is to offer festive wine matching advice at the Wooden Hand Beer & Wine stall. Southwestern Distillery will also be on hand sampling their Cornish pastis and Tarquin’s gin.
Cornish coffee roaster Origin Coffee are to sell a selection of hot drinks, and the Fifteen Cornwall apprentices are serving up a warm food offering throughout the day. Additional street food choices will also be available to purchase from late morning.
Fifteen Cornwall is managed by independent charity Cornwall Food Foundation. Its focus is on food skills, and this will be evident in the children’s activities and entertainment they are to host in the Kids Zone.
