The eleventh annual Padstow Christmas Festival is on the horizon, taking place from Thursday 6th to Sunday 9th December. Paul is joining forces with Rick Stein and Nathan Outlaw to oversee four buzzing days of chef demos and delectable food, with a fairy-lit Padstow harbour setting the scene.

Over at Rojano’s In The Square on Monday 10th December, celebrated London chefs and great friends of ours, Angela Hartnett and Neil Borthwick will be paying us a visit. Paul first met Angela and Neil whilst working under Gordon Ramsay and have continued to be such good friends of ours ever since. Four years after the first event we did with Angela and Neil, we’ll be back again co-hosting and cooking up a six-course storm including pumpkin tortelli and confit beef. Alongside this, Enotria word wine will be sponsoring the event once again, with wine for the evening. We also have BBC Radio Cornwall’s Daphne Skinnard attending, who will be there to introduce the chefs and do a Q&A during the evening.

All the proceeds are going towards Cornwall Air Ambulance’s New Heli Appeal, which is a charity especially close to all of our hearts. It was the London Air Ambulance that arrived when Neil had a serious road accident in 2012 and were able to get him to hospital, aiding his recovery. This new Heli appeal is working to provide a next-generation air ambulance helicopter by April 2020, to enhance Cornwall Air Ambulance’s vital work. With over 800 lifesaving missions taking place in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly every year, we’re thrilled to be supporting this charity.

Get ahead and book with us for the Christmas period here.
