Taste of Scilly


Date: Throughout September 2018

‘The Taste of Scilly programme is packed with events sharing the unique low-food miles, slow-food culture of the famously unspoilt archipelago, 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall. Throughout September, there’s a fresh foodie experience to savour every day, ranging from lobster feasts to Scillonian produce markets, from beach barbecues to pasty-making workshops, and also from evening supper boats to Taste of Scilly cocktails and cream teas.’

Now in its third year, the Scilly Food Festival is a mouth-watering, month-long celebration of the very best in local food and drink from across the islands.

Meet the 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, with farmers and their families revealing what it takes to build a successful artisan food business on the islands, and there are chef and fishermen demos, 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 brewing mouthwatering ales and ciders.
