Cornwall Life - - THE DIARY -

Ev­ery Septem­ber, the Isles of Scilly cel­e­brates the very best of is­land food and drink with a month-long fes­ti­val which goes to the very heart of the lo­cal is­land-based pro­duc­ers. Vis­i­tors can en­joy the low-food miles, slow-food cul­ture and savour a fresh foodie ex­pe­ri­ence ev­ery day.

Meet lo­cal bak­ers, brew­ers, chefs, farm­ers, fish­er­men and food and drink pro­duc­ers who love to share their sto­ries, pas­sions and cre­ativ­ity. There are tours of small work­ing farms to dis­cover what it takes to build a suc­cess­ful ar­ti­san food busi­ness on the is­lands, and there are demon­stra­tions from chefs and fish­er­men – all keen to show off their skills in the kitchen from bak­ing the per­fect scone and crimp­ing pasties to pre­serv­ing herbs, fish­ing for ra­zor clams and cre­at­ing mouth­wa­ter­ing ales and ciders.
