Four reasons why Cornwall is great for food!
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
Cornwall has long been associated with great food, being a region that has access to great produce both on the land and in the water. We have taken a look at a few reasons why Cornwall is such a great place to eat!
As Cornwall is almost entirely surrounded by the coast, the opportunity to take advantage of all of the wonders of the sea is one that is embraced in Cornwall. Mackerel, Pollock, Scallops and Mussels are just a few of the wonders of the ocean that you can enjoy in Cornwall, which are all caught a stone's throw away by local fisherman.
Chefs are always looking for new and exciting ways to produce their food, and will create collaborations between foods you would never have dreamt of putting together. Local producers also enjoying adding new elements to their produce to keep them exciting, meaning you will never have a dull meal in the region.
Does any more need to be said?! Arguably one of the greatest Cornish products ever created, enjoying a Cornish cream tea with lashings of clotted cream on top of strawberry jam is a very special experience indeed!
Food comes first
When dining in Cornwall, there need not be the worry about finding the hottest restaurant around at that time in order to experience a great meal.
