    G7 visits St Ives

    G7 visits St Ives

    And just like that Cornwall went back to normal and it was like it never happened! But for a few days over the weekend things got very surreal around here with cavalcades of giant black cars and security driving through Penzance, exotic helicopters circling in the sky and our beautiful beaches flashing out on news reports across the globe – Boris even revealed himself to be a keen sea swimmer, diving in for a morning dip!

    When it was announced that the G7 was coming to Cornwall my first thought (once I had confirmed it wasn’t April fool’s day!) was that it would be amazing for business. In the end, however, St. Ives was very quiet; all the visitors were hanging out within the ‘ring of steel’ that said I don’t think I’m alone in feeling incredibly proud of Cornwall; our landscape, people and food. We managed to host a peaceful, positive global event in the midst of a pandemic. It’s a weekend we won’t forget in a hurry!

    Use your loaf!

    Use your loaf!

    Is there anyone left who didn’t have a go at making bread of some kind over lockdown?!

    Many of us have come away simply appreciating the skills of bakers more, but there are also those of us who now can’t resist the smell of a fresh loaf in the oven and the joy of knowing we have baked it ourselves.

    As the UK is gradually emerging from lockdown once more and eating outdoors is becoming the new fine dining, putting together a meal can require a bit more planning and a bit more carrying!

    Our bread wraps are perfect for keeping your freshly baked loaf safe, carrying a family load of sandwiches or wrapping round a bowl of something delicious to keep bugs and picky fingers out. With a wipeable, food safe lining and velcro fastening they are super easy to use and keep clean.

    We know the bread makers amongst you will have your favourite recipes, but we’ve found this selection which has a variety of options…

    Poppy’s bread wrap is often used to protect her sharing bowl of potato salad. The recipe is so secret we couldn’t get it out of her, but here are a few alternatives that look pretty delicious...

    We need your survey help (and there are rewards!)

    WE NEED YOUR  HELP

    Roses are red, violets are blue, please fill out our survey and help us to help you!

    Many moons ago, some of you may remember, we did a big survey where we asked you all lots of questions and we used your answers to make our plans and decisions, about how we did things, what we made and where we made them.

    We're asking you now to help us again. We've put together another survey because we understand that the world has changed a lot in the last six years. We're really hoping you won't mind taking 20 minutes out to tell us lots of things about you and what you think of us. It's big, it's nosy but it's super useful for us and hopefully quite interesting for you too.
