Last Sunday we were delighted to have a stall at the Boscastle Food, Art and Craft Festival. We were late in applying this year and had resigned ourselves to trying again next year when we received an email on Saturday night saying a space had become available. We gave up on the idea of a lazy evening spent watching a film in our pyjamas and hastily made preparations for Sundays event. There’s nothing quite like making chocolate at 9pm (sorry to our neighbours!!).
Boscastle Festival was set up as an effort to boost the economy following the devastating floods of 2004. Since then it has gained momentum and now boasts an impressive line up; drawing in chefs, food producers and artists from all over Boscastle and the surrounding areas, including coverage from BBC Radio Cornwall. Last year saw an astounding 3000 visitors over the 2 day-long event and next year promises to be even better!
We had the pleasure of being next to The Brownie Baker who make delicious chocolate brownies in a variety of flavours, and on our other side were The Cornish Seaweed Company who sustainably source seaweed from Cornish shores and create a variety of dried seaweed products and cooking inclusions- I can’t wait to try out their Seaweed Salt. We also had a chat with the Cornish Seasalt Co. and plan to use their salt flakes in a new sea salt chocolate bar so keep an eye on our website for new treats available to buy soon.
