Excitement building for St Ives Food and Drink Festival

The St Ives Food and Drink Festival is getting closer, and anticipation is building amongst those soon to be staying in 5 star accommodation in Cornwall for the event to begin.

The festival will be held from 17-19 May on Porthminster Beach, believed to be the first food festival in the UK to be held on a beach. St Ives has a long history of fishing and seafood, both of which are being celebrated at this year's festival with sustainable fish cooking demonstrations, fish filleting sessions, edible seaweed cooking and oyster and champagne tastings.

As well as celebrating seafood, the festival has a 'forage, cook, feast' theme this year, which will see visitors encouraged to join in with food foraging walks before cooking their findings in a cook off. Local producers will also be showcasing their fresh produce, and people of all ages can find something special to take home with them on a visit to St Ives this May.
