For anyone who can’t get enough of the fantastic array of food and drink that heralds from the UK’s most South Westerly peninsula, the answer is just around the corner. A new concept hits the road this year, and its first stop is Bristol.

Cornwall Food & Drink LIVE will come to Brunel’s Old Station in Bristol, from November 2-4, 2012. The two-day event will highlight just why Cornwall has gained such a reputation as the culinary capital of the coast and countryside and is a destination for food lovers from far and wide. Featuring the county’s top food and drinks producers and a host of admired Cornish chefs, plus much more, the event will bring the true flavour of Cornwall to the city.

What’s on offer? Clotted cream and pasties? Of course! But that’s just the beginning. Cornwall has one of the richest larders in the world and wants to share its bounty! From award winning ales such as Sharp’s Doom Bar and St Austell Brewery’s Tribute, to champion cheeses like Cornish Blue, succulent grass-reared meats and designer chocolates … and even the launch of a Cornish pasty flavoured crisp courtesy of the Cornish Crisp Company!

Throughout the weekend the stage will play host to numerous other master-classes, tastings and fun challenges, with plenty to please all tastes and ages. Families can get stuck in with an array of fun activities with a distinctly Cornish flavour. Old and young can have a go at learning the art of pasty crimping, come face to face with an RNLI lifeboat and take part in shanty singing! Those who enjoy the active side of life can also Race the Doom Bar with the Sharp’s rowing simulator!

And if you’re planning a getaway to the county next year, there will be many hotels and attractions to talk to, including the experts from Visit Cornwall. Cornish Mining World Heritage and Country Sports South West will also be on hand with lots of ideas for your visit to Cornwall.
