From coal and logs for a roaring fire, to mince pies and mistletoe, fine wine and fantastic food – Cornish producers have everything you need for a truly local Christmas feast. Here’s our pick of local festive treats available through Cornish Food Market and Food 4 my Holiday, which many of our guests order from and have waiting for them on their arrival.

Cornish Cheese

Cornwall has some top notch cheeses. Lynher Dairy, just outside Truro make a great Yarg – a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese wrapped in nettle leaves. Helford White from Treveador Dairy, based on a French Reblochon, won gold at the British Cheese Awards 2011. Our pick, Cornish Blue from Knowle Farm just outside Liskeard – a soft, creamy and delightful cheese perfect for a festive fig salad.

Cornish Christmas trees

Grown locally, Noble Christmas Trees are thought to be the best variety for holding onto their needles and are available for delivery from Cornish Food Market.

Cornish Christmas Day lunch

Traditional White Turkey hand reared by Richard Banbury and his family just outside Padstow, or how about a change with roast pork, ham or bacon from Robinson’s Family Butchers in Bodmin? Every plate can be catered for.

Cornish Orchards’ Wassail Mulled Cider

Cornish Orchards products are available throughout the county including Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall Restaurant and Rick Stein’s Seafood restaurant. Wassail is a sumptuous and aromatic brew of cider and apple juice, infused with fresh oranges and hand-blended spices. Serve warm as a simple and easy option for festive occasions.

Cornish Smoked Sea Salt

The chance discovery in 2004 of an Iron Age salt works, tucked away in a remote cove on the south coast of Cornwall, planted the idea for The Cornish Sea Salt Company. Fast forward to today, and Cornish Sea Salt is going strength to strength. We love their range of flavoured salts – the Smoked Sea Salt tastes especially great on buttered bread or pork crackling.

If you’re looking for quality Cornish produce that can be delivered to your door of your holiday accommodation – or even the actual kitchen or fridge – we recommend using The Cornish Food Market and Food 4 my Holiday.
