Local chefs draw the crowds!

Hundreds of people were entertained at the Newlyn Fish Festival on Bank Holiday Monday (25 August) by a fast moving cookery demonstration by local chefs. Ben Tunnicliffe from the Abbey Restaurant in Penzance, Nigel Tabb from Tabbs Restaurant in Portreath and Tracy Page, Chef Lecturer at Cornwall College kept the crowds enthralled as they did 'Ready Steady Cook' with a selection of locally landed fresh fish and seasonal vegetables grown in Penwith District.

Part funding was given to the project by the Objective One Fisheries Programme (£2,880) and supported by Seafish under the promotion of 'Fish Forever'. This is a fishing industry initiative to promote the fish at Cornish events. Plans are underway to host a Newquay Fish Festival on the Harbour 13 and 14 September with cookery demonstrations from local chefs and fun for all the family. More details to follow.
