2021 Chef Lineup announced

We are excited to announce our full expert chef lineup for Truro Food Festival.

After the success of a very popular (and very delicious) chef demo stage in 2019, we will return this October with new chefs and new recipes for you all to enjoy. On show visitors will learn about a range of techniques, cooking seafood, meat and vegetables for you to take home and try yourself. St Austell will be sponsoring the main Chef Theatre over the weekend.

Chef demos take place at the Chefs Theatre on Friday, Saturday and Sunday during Truro Food Festival.
