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.

#MyScilly Tim Hicks, Dairy Farmer

I come from a very long line of Hicks on Scilly.  I grew up on a flower farm in the centre of St. Agnes. My brother and nephew still farm it.

When I was at primary school on St. Agnes, there were just 8 children in total. I then had to leave the islands at 11 to go to boarding School in Truro. It was a bit of a shock coming from a tiny
