An award-winning Cornish meat producer is highlighting the importance of eating breakfast with a special celebratory event for Farmhouse Breakfast Week (21- 26 January 2013).

Tregony-based Kernow Sausage Company will be emphasising the importance of using quality produce in a sausage making masterclass for Cornish hospitality businesseson Monday 21st January at The Beach Hut, Watergate Bay.

Owner of Kernow Sausage Company, Gavin Roberts said: The hands-on approach of our sausage masterclass will not only be great fun, but will really show participants how much difference a carefully crafted and passionate approach can make to the end product.

Breakfast is the one meal all guests eat at B&Bs and hotels and often the last one they have before they check out, so it is essential that the quality is really high. By choosing good quality breakfast ingredients hotels and restaurants will leave customers with a lasting memory of their stay.

Farmhouse Breakfast Week runs annually and aims to highlight the health benefits of eating breakfast as well as showing consumers the wealth of local produce available across the country.

Born from farmhouse kitchen beginnings, Kernow Sausage Company now supply some of the countys finest chefs, hotels and restaurants with their sausages, bacon and hogs pudding, made from pigs hand-reared on their Cornish farm.

Existing customer Watergate Bay Hotel recognises the value of providing a quality breakfast to their customers. Recently awarded Best Foodie Hotel at the 2013 Food Magazine Reader Awards, they are known for their quality food offering and locally sourced menu.

Executive Chef Neil Haydock, said: We want all the food we serve here at Watergate Bay Hotel and The Beach Hut to showcase the very best of Cornwalls produce and that goes for our breakfasts as well.

We source everything we possibly can locally and like to give people choices which reflect whats on offer here in Cornwall. Having quality reliable producers with great products is just as important as having talented chefs in the kitchen.

Cornwall Food & Drink have recognised the direct impact this can have on the Cornish economy with their Real Cornish Breakfast campaign, being launched to tie in with Farmhouse Breakfast Week.

MD of Cornwall Food & Drink, Ruth Huxley said: Sourcing from local producers is incredibly important for the Cornish economy its been well documented for years that keeping money circulating within the local economy generates multiple benefits for both business and community our campaign is intended to remind people of that.

The breakfast masterclass will be held at The Beach Hut at Watergate Bay for a number of local businesses. Invitees will hear Gavin from Kernow Sausage Company talk about the importance of using quality ingredients with good provenance as well as sharing some of the secrets of hand-made sausage production. Participants will be able to make their own sausages before sitting down to a Cornish farmhouse breakfast served by The Beach Hut.
