Between Friday’s farmers’ market and today’s trip to the St. Ives Food and Drink Festival, this has been an extremely food-ful weekend. Not that I’m complaining, mind you.
It was great to see St. Ives buzzing and full of people.
And the weather couldn’t have been better.
We really only went to the food producers’ market along the pier, but that was enough to keep me dipping into my purse every minute or so.
There was local fruit and veg:
… delicious cheeses:
… smoked haddock chowder (which was scrumptious) and giant pans of paella:
…lots to wash it down with:
(The husband will report back with his verdict on the Boilers Cornish Ale later on, and I can already vouch for the yummy-ness of Polgoon’s Aval, which you can order online. It’s one of my very favourite tipples.)
…and plenty of sweet treats for afters:
I opted for Jaffa Cake which was homemade dark chocolate ice cream and orange ice cream swirled together with an orange reduction syrup type thing, and with chunks of Jaffa Cake mixed in. Heaven.
A splendid day. Shame we didn’t leave many crumbs for this fellow and his friends:
