Seasonal Fodder


Hot Mulled Cider.

A great alternative to mulled wine, hot mulled cider is a sumptuous and aromatic brew of cider and apple juice, infused with all the spice and flavour of the season. Try Polgoon’s mulled cider or Cornish Orchards’ Wassail.


Autumn Harvest.

Autumn is the perfect time of year to celebrate our local producers and growers and their Cornish harvest. From autumn veggies to Cornish fish and meat, swing by the renowned Truro Farmers’ Market or Fifteen Cornwall’s Autumn Farmers’ Market (Sat 20 Oct), both sure to be bustling with the very best of the season’s produce.


Freshly baked bread.

Serve a chunk of freshly baked bread alongside those seasonal soups and Autumnal hotpots. For fresh, wholesome, good quality bread try local bakeries The Chough and Da Bara. Or stop by Baker Tom’s new café in Redruth.


Cornish Game.

From venison, pheasant, duck and rabbit to fresh trout and salmon, celebrate the game season with slow-cooked meat and hearty root vegetables. Find the Cornish Venison and Cornish Duck companies at local food markets and events or get in touch with Country Sports South West to find out more about shooting, fishing and your local game suppliers.


Afternoon Tea.

We love a good cuppa, don’t we? Whether just a simple brew and a biscuit or a full blown traditional afternoon tea with finger sandwiches, cakes and scones, make sure you try the only tea made in England, produced by Tregothnan in Cornwall.


Chocolate Brownies.

There is no better way to warm up after a brisk walk or a brave surf than with a hot drink and a chocolate brownie. Brownie Bakers’ award-winning double chocolate brownie certainly hits the spot.


Autumn Spice.

Use bold Autumn spices to add warmth to your food. Spice up meals with ‘bonfire spice’ from spice merchant Ally Watkins, Nature Kitchen, or homemade curry sauces from Ruby June’s.


Jams and Honey.

As the mornings turn cold, sometimes cereal doesn’t quite cut the mustard. Try locally made jams from Cornish Meadow Preserves and Crellow, as well as honey from Tregothnan Estate, served on warm toast to kick start your day.


Cornish Mead.

Ninemaiden’s traditional Cornish apple mead is made with the best Cornish honey, blended with seasonal spices. Wrap yourself up and serve their spiced mead warm on a cold Autumn evening.



Eerie lanterns and delicious homemade soups – pumpkins certainly hog the limelight in October, but don’t forget less showy seasonal veg such as the Cornish Crown Prince squash, which is just as tasty. Try for local, seasonal veg delivered direct to your door!
