Porthleven Food Festival 2018

Now in its 10th year Porthleven Food Festival celebrates everything to do with local food and produce - from beer to bread to fish - there's something for all the family...


as can be seen from the website's menu...


but first you have to get there and like all successful events in Cornwall with its narrow and singular roads in and out of ports - that means get there early!..



the main marquee was full of fishy themes...



and during the day played host to the Chef's Theatre...



with top cheffing tips coming thick and fast from the likes of...



Naomi Devlin – nutritionalist and author of River Cottage showcasing all things gluten free and gut healthy...





followed by fish maestro, Ross Sloan from the kitchens of the Mount Haven in Marazion...



with not a cloud in the sky the place to take time out was looking out over the harbour in front of the giant free music marquee and bar...



or take in any of the dozens of food, craft and other stalls dotted all round the port...



as the afternoon wore on the place to be was the slip...



in front of the Harbour Inn...



or a stroll down the iconic breakwater...



or the Ship Inn...



even the local gulls seemed to be enjoying the day...



there were reminders of how we have become increasingly concerned for the well-being of our seas...



but above all the message, as ever, was simple - Love Food!
