Taste of Scilly

Every September, the Isles of Scilly celebrates the very best of island food and drink. The month-long Taste of Scilly festival goes to the very heart of our local island-based producers who, for such a tiny population, grow and produce a magnificent range of delicious products, most of which is served up right here across the archipelago in our local restaurants and cafes. 

What we have is unique! So come and discover the low-food miles, slow-food culture of our famously unspoilt archipelago and saviour a fresh foodie experience every day: from lobster feasts and taster menus to Scillonian produce markets, from beach barbecues to pasty-making workshops, from evening supper boats to Taste of Scilly cocktails and cream teas.

Meet our local bakers, brewers, chefs, farmers, fishermen and food and drink producers who love to share their stories, passions and creativity. There are tours of small working farms, with farmers and their families revealing what it takes to build a successful artisan food business on the islands, and there are chef's and fishermen's demos - all keen to show off their skills in the kitchen - from baking the perfect scone and crimping pasties to preserving herbs, fishing for razor clams and creating mouthwatering ales and ciders.

Why not find out more about Scilly's local producers here and look out for the programme in early July 2018.
