Chelsea press in for Cornish treat
Journalists and VIPs attending Chelsea Flower Show's
press day on Monday 22 May will able to enjoy a genuine taste
of Cornwall when they visit the Cornish Oasis garden at the
Taste of the West Cornwall will be there on press day with
samples of some of Cornwall's best food and drink –
adding a whole new taste dimension to the Cornish Oasis garden.
"It's impossible to celebrate Cornwall without
acknowledging its fantastic food and drink," says
Angie Coombs of Taste of the West Cornwall, "which
is why we're so pleased to be supporting the Cornish
Oasis garden at Chelsea. Real Cornish treats will help make
the garden a genuine oasis for press and VIP guests, providing
refreshment and sustenance to revitalise their minds and bodies
on what is always a very busy day."
At the Cornish Oasis garden Taste of the West Cornwall will
be serving up fresh apple juice from Cornish Orchards near
Liskeard. Cheese biscuits from Blue Mango Bread, Truro will
be topped off with Cornish yarg and garlic yarg cheese from
Lynher Dairy near Truro. Pasty lovers will be able to indulge
in a Proper Cornish pasty from Bodmin, while those in search
of a Cornish cream tea will enjoy clotted cream from Trewithan
Dairy, Lostwithiel and strawberry jam from Boddington's,
Mevagissey, plus traditional fruit cake made with local Cornish
ingredients from the Incredible Fruit Cake Company, Callington.
The Cornish Oasis garden has been created by the South West
Garden Designers Group. Its design encapsulates Cornwall as
a contemporary oasis – a natural woodland glade in which
to relax and admire the beauty of nature. It will depict the
regeneration of Cornwall from a past steeped in myth and fable
to a modern and inspirational place to live and work.
