Cornish Cuisine: A Gastronomic Adventure for your group

Your Group Tour Specialist for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly

Cornwall is a beautiful county in the southwest of England, known for its stunning coastline, picturesque villages, and delicious cuisine. Cornwall DMC can take your group on a gastronomic adventure through Cornwall, highlighting the delectable Cornish cuisine and recommending must-visit restaurants and food experiences.

Cornish cuisine encompasses the cooking styles, traditions, and recipes associated with Cornwall and the Cornish people. It has been heavily influenced by the geography of the county as well as its social history. Being a peninsula surrounded by seas historically well-stocked with fish, fish dishes form a major part of the historical and modern recipes in Cornwall. The iconic dish of Cornwall is the pasty, which has its roots in the mining industry within the county.

When it comes to food experiences in Cornwall, there are plenty to choose from. For a taste of traditional Cornish cuisine, be sure to try a Cornish pasty. This delicious pastry is filled with beef, potatoes, swede, and onion, and is perfect for a hearty lunch or snack. Another must-try is a Cornish cream tea. This consists of a freshly-baked scone, split in half and topped with strawberry jam and clotted cream.

If you’re a seafood lover, then you’re in for a treat in Cornwall. With its long coastline and abundant fishing grounds, Cornwall is home to some of the freshest and most delicious seafood in the UK. Be sure to try some local specialties such as Stargazy pie, which is made with pilchards, eggs, and potatoes.

For those who are not just content with tasting the local cuisine but also want to learn how to prepare it, a cookery school experience would be a fantastic addition to your Cornwall adventure.

One such place is the Rick Stein Cookery School in Padstow. Here, you can learn how to create delicious dishes using local Cornish produce under the guidance of professional chefs. The school offers a variety of courses, from seafood masterclasses to short and long courses for all skill levels.

Another great option is Philleigh Way Cookery School located on the Roseland Peninsula. They offer a range of courses including bread making, fish cookery, and foraging. They even have a ‘Woodfired Session’ course where you can learn how to cook on an open fire.

When it comes to dining out in Cornwall, there are plenty of fantastic restaurants to choose from. Some must-visit spots include The Rising Sun in Truro, Chorley’s Truro, Appleton’s Bar & Restaurant in Fowey, The Sardine Factory in Looe, and Coombeshead Farm in Lewannick. These restaurants offer a range of delicious dishes made with fresh local ingredients.
