I would like to take this opportunity to Thank everyone involved in Potluck Cornwall over the last year and a half, that we have been organising events. It is wonderful that our events are getting larger and very well supported. I have loved meeting new fellow foodies and have made some amazing friends along the way too.
It has been fun, exciting, fascinating learning new tips, ideas and facts about the food we enjoy and most enjoyable of all is the variety and excellent quality of food we are tasting along the way.
We started this year with a Chat and Nibble at Mackerel Sky Cafe in Penzance which included a most enjoyable talk by John Strike former owner and award winner of Quayside Fishmongers in Porthleven. We then went onto holding a Seafood Master Class with John at Roselidden (Peter and Jos' beautiful long barn in Helston).
We met the incredible Usha from The Stag Hunt Inn who collaborated with us when we showed the movie 'The Hundred Foot Journey' as it is an Indian movie and Usha cooks the most amazing Indian food in Ponsanooth, her and Garry put a fantastic buffet together for us and served it at Ponsanooth Village Hall for us. We enjoyed her food so much that we ended the year enjoying an Indian summer Roast at The Stag Hunt Inn where we were joined by Ally Watkins from Nature Kitchen Spice Merchants in St Austell.
The Good Friday Children's cookery with Little Kitchen Magicians was another great success including the younger generation to get hands on with food. My Mother was very, very impressed with the professionalism, effort and attention to detail from Lizzie when she attended the event with my nephew, who loves all the events that Lizzie has put on. The standard of excellence in Cornwall regarding food in our experience is Amazing.
We enjoyed a high tea tapas at Bone China in Truro where we enjoyed some tiered platters of yummy-ness.
No meal is complete for many without a bit of alcohol so the Rum tasting at The Brig in Falmouth was a fantastic learning experience about the history of it, complimented with some amazing alcohol infused food.
This year saw us collaborate our first 'The Big Lunch' Potluck Picnic event at the Watering Lane Nursery in St Austell hosted by the Amazing Ken, his wife Lorraine and the wonderful team there. Everyone made a huge effort to bring a dish to share and we got to wonder around their beautiful nursery.
This is the reason we all get excited about trying new places and sharing a common love of great food delivered with great love too.
Thanks to all of you for your support and enthusiasm to try new things.
Have an awesome summer. Do not forget to share details of places that you discover so we can share future events.
Love and Happy Tummies
