GUARDIAN WRITER PRAISES CORNWALL'S FOOD AND DRINK SCENE
27 February 2013
A food and drink expert has named Cornwall as Britain's new foodie capital and, in an article in The Guardian, he delves into why the county has undergone such an "extraordinary culinary renaissance". High quality local produce is something which Cornwall has become famous for, and Jon Henley named it as a county where good food is both made and consumed.
Good food can be found all across Cornwall, whether in a fine dining establishment such as those created by chefs like Rick Stein and Nathan Outlaw, or in a cafe frequented by those walking through the county's natural beauty whilst staying in dog friendly cottages in Cornwall.
Jon Henley talked to some of Cornwall's food producers, people who are often thought to be the heart of the county's food and drink success. Andy Atkinson, dairy farmer turned cider producer, put his success down to the "cider boom" and the "regional food boom", whilst the owners of cured meat producer Deli Farm said that "the fundamentals have always been here". Overall, it seems that Cornwall has always been a great food destination, but current trends in food and drink have really seen the county shine.
