This year, The Penventon Park Hotel will be supporting The Cornish Food and Drink Festival. The Cornish Food and Drink Festival will be taking stage in place of The Cornish Asparagus Festival, and will commence on Sunday 1st of June at The Penventon Park Hotel.

The Cornish Food and Drink Festival will be aiming to allow a crowd of local producers to gather together in aid of Cornwall Hospice Care. The Penventon’s own chefs will be featuring during the festival, providing exciting cookery demonstrations using Cornish produce. Taking advantage of
this time of year, the chefs will also be able to give useful advice on how to use the delicious ingredients that are so accessible to us this season: allowing us to make the most of it!

At the festival, there will be 30 stalls selling a huge variety of Cornish food and drink: not forgetting the famous Cornish asparagus! There is also set to be an extensive raffle to be drawn on the day with some exquisite prizes including; a one night stay at The Penventon Hotel inclusive of bed & breakfast, a Rick Stein hamper and a signed copy of Nathan Outlaw’s latest book.

Clare Bray, Community Fundraiser at Cornwall Hospice Care, said “This is the first time we have organised an event purely based on food and drink and I’m really excited about the variety of local produce that will be there on the day. It should definitely inspire anyone to get in the kitchen and try something different!”

Clare added: “Entry on the day is free, so come along and see some of the fantastic locally produced food and drink that Cornwall has to offer and at the same time help to support a truly Cornish charity”.

If you are interested in locally produced ingredients or just have a burning passion for food and drink in general, please come along to The Cornish Food and Drink Festival on Sunday 1st of June, raising money for a truly deserving cause.
