The Secret Garden Cafe, Truro

Update 21st June...I've just found out that the owners have decided to sell up, so the Secret Garden Cafe is no more! Now I'm really regretting not going back for another one of their salted caramel brownies... I've been suffering from a lingering cold recently which, in addition to sapping me of energy, has left … Continue reading The Secret Garden Cafe, Truro


Redruth Pasty Festival 2015

To my great delight, we discovered last summer that Redruth is home to the International Mining and Pasty Festival, a weekend dedicated to the area's heritage and history and the perfect opportunity to a) learn some interesting stuff about our new hometown and b) eat as many meat and veg filled suet pastries as possible. … Continue reading Redruth Pasty Festival 2015

Secret finds: Mack’s Fish & Steak Bar, Redruth

Shockingly enough, we don't actually eat fish & chips all that often, but save it for very special occasions/emergencies.

Potluck Cornwall @ The Brig, Falmouth

Isn't Twitter great? It's thanks to Twitter that I found out about Potluck Cornwall, a foodie networking group that puts on 'chat and eat' nights, where you can get to know people and eat great food. Sounds good to me! A month or so ago I found my way to Potluck via Barefoot Cornwall's monthly food blog, … Continue reading Potluck Cornwall @ The Brig, Falmouth
