Scilly food festival lobster

Calling all foodie aficionados...Come to Scilly this September

There's no better time to come to Scilly if you love sampling local produce, eating and drinking well and enjoy unique experiences such as eating mussels on a seabed!  Taste of Scilly is a month-long, mouth-watering celebration of the very best in local food and drink from the islands. And you're invited!

Programme highlights include totally-chilled pop-up Sunday barbecues on Porthcressa beach, cookery masterclasses, tastings, a hedgerow harvest, local produce tours and markets, dining experiences, cider and ale festivals, an opportunity to fish for your supper off shore and, of course the unique Tresco low-tide experience.

Whet your appetite with our foodie film, and download the full programme here (5mb).  Some you can just turn up to; for others you will need to book - either directly with the business or via the Tourist Information Centre - 01720 424031 or email info@visitislesofscilly.com 

Famous for its relaxed pace and simple pleasures, Scilly's food and drink offer is no different - and represents the ultimate in slow food and low food miles. In fact, on Scilly you not only know where your food has come from, but you can often point to the fisherman or farmer who has provided it!

True to this provenance, the festival features a melting pot of authentic local flavours and truly distinctive foodie experiences as the islands bring together local bakers, brewers, fishermen, foragers and chefs to share their stories, passions and creativity to really get the taste buds tingling.

The event is being facilitated and supported by the Islands' Partnership events team and Coastal Communities Fund.
