St Ives - Christmas Food

Digey Food Room - Tasting Day


There are two events this weekend in St Ives that are worth checking out if you're looking for some great Christmas food.

Fair Mo at The Guildhall features "everything you need for Christmas under one roof." Festive food, drink and gifts. It is open from 10.00 am to 2.00 pm, a fundraiser for St Ives Parish Church.

The Digey Food Room are hosting their fifth annual Tasting Day. Tables will be filled with samples of the huge range of exciting things the shop has to offer. Anyone not sure which of the dozen or more olive oils and balsamic vinegars is the one for them will have a chance to taste the difference. Or they can compare different chorizo and salami or try a range of Spanish chocolate or Italian biscuits and panettone.

There is also a great selection of Cornish produce - don't miss the cheeses from Sue Proudfoot of Whalesborough Farm or the range of preserves from Crellow, the smoked meats from Tregidda or the mulled cider and apple juice from Cornish Orchards.

The tasting runs from 11.00 am to 4.00 pm - and in case you didn't know they are (not surprisingly) located on The Digey just off Fore Street.

I'll be posting more Christmas events here soon including Santa's arrival in St Ives.
