The Great Cornish Food Festival will be jammed to the rafters with bakers, butchers, cheesemakers, chocolatiers, and everyone in between.

This month The Great Cornish Food Festival on Truro's Lemon Quay, will be jammed to the rafters with bakers, butchers, cheesemakers, chocolatiers, and everyone in between, as the movers and shakers in the Cornish food and drink industry gear up for three days of sampling and showcasing.

Star of modern seafood cookery, Nathan Outlaw, will join around 100 other chefs, experts and food and drink producers at this year’s Great Cornish Food Festival, taking place from Friday 25th to Sunday 27th September. Organisers have revealed the hotly anticipated line-up for what has become the biggest celebration anywhere dedicated entirely to Cornish food and drink, with around 40,000 foodlovers expected to head to Truro’s Lemon Quay for the free three day extravaganza right in the heart of Cornwall.

Seasoned pros including Stephane Delourme of Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant and Fifteen Cornwall’s Andy Appleton rub shoulders with new names such as Chloe Marsland, young chef patronne of the tiny Harbour Lights Restaurant in the fishing village of Coverack, and Rick Toogood, whose Prawn on the Lawn venture is the latest addition to the buzzing Padstow food scene.

New for this year, the Croust Bar (that’s Cornish for a bite to eat and drink’) spills over on to Lemon Quay, as some of the brightest stars on the county’s street food scene get ready for three days of eating and drinking in the autumn sunshine. From fresh seafood paella to stonebaked pizza, artisan crêpes to hand-crimped proper Cornish pasties. Both inside and outside there’s something for everyone. And, as ever, every drink you sup or dish you eat will be produced inCornwall and brought to you by a local business.

Loyal festival headliner, Nathan Outlaw, who will be creating the festival finale on the Sunday, said, “I feel like I've grown up with the Great Cornish Food Festival as I've been coming every year since it began. It's a fantastic opportunity to see all the wonderful food and drink that Cornwall has to offer in once place and I'm really pleased to see how successful is has become. I'm really looking forward to this year's festival as I know it will be a chance to see, and taste some old favourites and some exciting new things too.”
