TASTE OF SCILLY
Never mind a weekend or even a week of food festivals. On the Scillies they don’t do things by half with a month-long Taste of Scilly festival every September. It showcases the local people who grow and produce a magnificent range of delicious food and drink, most of which is served up in local restaurants and cafes.
Visitors can discover the low-food miles, slow-food culture of this famously unspoilt archipelago and saviour a fresh foodie experience every day: from lobster feasts and taster menus to Scillonian produce markets, from beach barbecues at low tide to pasty-making workshops, from evening supper boats to Taste of Scilly cocktails and cream teas.
Meet local bakers, brewers, chefs, farmers, fishermen and food and drink producers who love to share their stories, passions and creativity.
