Sample fresh cuisine while on holiday in Cornwall

While on holiday, one of the many enjoyments comes from trying new regional specialty foods. Whether it is sampling a traditional Thai green curry, flavoured with local spices and made using ancient recipes which has been passed through many generations or the more modest battered fish and chips made famous in English seaside towns; local foods products offer so much more than shop brought imitations. Added to the holiday atmosphere and local knowledge of excellent accompaniments, your taste buds could experience a burst of flavours like no other.

Many places have become well known for the foods they produce. Take Cornwall, for example, infamous as the origins of the not so humble Cornish Pasty. Made with savoury pastry and filled with heaps of beef, swede, potato and onion – then cooked to a golden perfection – these ‘D shaped’ bites can only truly be called Cornish pasties if produced in Cornwall. Although Cornwall is better known for the Cornish pasty – and clotted cream for the sweeter toothed visitors, as a coastline county seafood is just as much part of the culinary traditions and plays a big part in the county’s history. With locally caught fish and shell foods including pilchards originating in Polperro, Cornwall has an abundance of quaint seafood restaurants serving up the local delicacies to be enjoyed by all visitors. Whilst taking a holiday in Cornwall, you could see fish being caught in the early morning and served by lunch time – taking fresh produce to a whole new meaning!

 

A holiday in Cornwall offers ample historic charm, especially in fishing towns where catching seafood is one of the main occupations. With the sea and beaches or walks in the countryside, a holiday in Cornwall could offer fun for the whole family and gives you a chance to try traditional Cornish foods that will taste out of this world, whilst basking the sun and taking in idyllic views.
