A new digital cookbook celebrating Cornish food has been released, and it’s available to download for a small donation!
Cornwall’s food scene is famously good, with inspirational chefs, food producersand restaurants around every picturesque corner. Add in the list of fabulous vineyards, distilleries, breweries and cider-makers, and you have a vibrant culinary culture just waiting to be discovered.
And now, a new digital cookbook brings together the best foodie talent from Cornwall as well as neighbouring Devon. Packed with great ideas for the home cook, The Comfort Cookbook is raising money for national charity Hospitality Action and can be downloaded here in return for a small donation.
The book was created by writers Lucy Studley (Cornwall Content) and Gabriella Dyson (The Maverick Guide). Photographer and food stylist Ali Green is responsible for the beautiful photography and design of The Comfort Cookbook.
A host of celebrity chefs including Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Nathan Outlaw and Michael Caines take things up a notch, with elaborate date-night dinners and indulgent desserts.
The authors have also included guides to growing your own produce, foraging in Cornwall, and the best beers, ciders and wines to source from local suppliers. There is even a cocktail and mocktail section put together by local experts!
Here’s a few teasers from the book to whet your appetite. We highly recommend downloading it in full – you’ll have Cornish food inspiration to hand whenever you need it!
Andy Appleton of Appleton’s, Fowey, has shared the secret to the perfect Ricotta Gnocchi, a lighter version of the classic potato gnocchi.
Kate Attlee’s deli is a great place to eat tasty, healthy lunches in the heart of Truro. Find out more about Kate’s Iranian food heritage and her appearance on Masterchef in the pages of The Comfort Cookbook.
We’re big fans of Emily Scott’s simple, seasonal and beautiful cooking which you can enjoy at her village pub, The St Tudy Inn in North Cornwall.
Padstow has many great eateries but Paul Ainsworth’s celebrated restaurant is hard to beat! We also love a visit to The Mariners gastropub in Rock, where you might find dishes like Thai Mussels on the menu.
It’s strictly jam first here in Cornwall! Rodda’s Creamery have shared their tried and tested scone recipe in this collection of recipes; a Cornish food cookbook wouldn’t be complete without it.
