After seven successful years, the Padstow Christmas Festival returns this year (3-6 Dec) with a celebration of Cornish food and drink to warm hearts and stomachs in the pre-Christmas cold. In the Chef's Demo Theatre, 40 of the country's finest chefs will gather to share stories, tips and recipes. People like Rick Stein, James Martin, Michael Caines, and Nathan Outlaw. On top of that, there are specialist food and drink suppliers from across the region, and craft and art stalls a-plenty. Scope to check off all your Christmas lists!
As you face the harbour, look a little over to the right. You'll see the main Christmas Marquee. We're properly delighted to have been invited to do a demonstration in the marquee Festival Kitchen Theatre on Sunday afternoon (3:30pm). Christine will be showcasing a few nuggets of cake decorating wisdom as she creates a beautifully decorated Christmas cake. If you fancy warming up to Christmas with 40,000 food-lovers, it's most definitely the place to be.
