Gastronomia e bevande

Stuzzicate il palato! 

Dall’eccellente gelato di produzione locale al tenero manzo dell’isola; da prelibati granchi e aragoste appena pescati a soffici torte fatte in casa; dalle verdure coltivate sul posto ai vini e le birre dell’isola: la cucina delle Scilly vi delizierà il palato. La gastronomia è una passione delle isole, celebrata in ogni momento ma soprattutto durante l’appuntamento annuale del Tresco & Bryher Food Festival. 

Nel loro insieme le isole vantano un’ottima selezione di locali gastronomici in cui assaggiare i prodotti del posto... Se trascorrete qui una settimana o due, non sarà necessario andare nello stesso ristorante due volte, a meno che non lo vogliate voi! 

Ristoranti panoramici, pub dall’atmosfera accogliente, aperitivi sulla spiaggia, prelibatezze gustate all’aperto o uno snack al volo - troverete di sicuro il posto che fa per voi. Inoltre, i più avventurosi potranno procacciarsi la cena andando a pescare o alla ricerca di cibo sulla spiaggia. 

Nei negozi agricoli spesso visibili a bordo strada è possibile acquistare prodotti del posto come frutta e verdura fresche, marmellate, conserve, il tipico “fudge” fatto in casa, uova e molto altro. Non dimenticate i contanti perché nella maggior parte dei casi si lascia una donazione a discrezione dell’acquirente. Anche St. Mary’s ospita regolarmente mercati con prodotti locali durante tutta la stagione, di solito nel palazzo del municipio.

Troytown dairy cows

Troytown Farm Shop

St. Agnes

Troytown Farm is the only dairy farm in Scilly. Milking 9 dairy cows, it might also be the smallest in the country. Farming on a small scale works for us, as we process the milk in our little dairy and make very special ice cream, clotted cream, butter and yogurt to sell direct to our customers from our farm shop.
