Your guide to a

Cornish

Christmas

Hello and welcome! Thank you for picking up our free Guide to a Cornish

Christmas. In this strange and trying year, the importance of shopping

local and supporting independent businesses has never been clearer and

in Cornwall we are certainly a county that loves to love local. Whether

it’s jewellery makers, ceramicists, baby clothing, craft gin, chocolate or

homeware, chances are you can find someone in Cornwall who makes

and/or sells it. In this guide you’ll find a taste of what’s on offer this festive

season, from a range of experiences to treat you and a loved one to, be

it an evening of delicious wining and dining or a virtual Cornish Christmas

fair, to a host of independent retailers and makers where you can discover

stocking fillers and special gifts galore. It’s all here, so get planning and

preparing and make this Christmas full of love, locality and community spirit.

Nadelik Lowen!

Merry Christmas,

Usually holding immensely popular events

in the likes of St Ives or Penryn, this year’s

new Makers Cornwall Christmas Fair will be

entirely virtual, with 50 makers set to show

off their beautiful products in a Facebook

Live event on Saturday 14th November,

11am – 1pm.

Expect plenty of special offers, voucher

codes, demos and one-off handmade gifts

all made by local makers. Simply curl up on

the sofa, cocktail or coffee in hand, pyjamas

on and a passion for shopping local.

And in the spirit of giving back, every maker

taking part in the virtual fair has donated at

least £5 to the Daisy Duke’s CIC to support

homeless people directly in Cornwall. A

donation page will be set up too for those

able to help towards the Christmas appeal.

CURIO SPIRIT COMPANY

From the team behind the

pioneering botanical gin, Wild

Coast, Curio’s penchant for

creating fresh and tantalising

tipples is a year-round

adventure and at Christmas,

you can expect no less when it

comes to sourcing the perfect sip.

Still reeling off last year’s win

for Best Flavoured Gin at the

Great British Food Awards

2019, Curio’s Blueberry Gin

has been a ground breaker

for gin enthusiasts. Sourcing

blueberries from a former

Cornish monastery, this fruity,

smooth gin offers a rich

flavour designed to be sipped

neat or with the ever-present

accompaniment of premium

mixers.

Next up to the Curio range this

year is the Hard Seltzer. Set

for release in December, this

refreshing, high quality drink is

low in calories and packed with

natural flavours.

Finally, it would be impossible

not to mention Curio’s Coyaba

Rum range for Christmas.

Coyaba Banana Rum is certainly

leading the way in spiced rum

flavours and has celebrated a

70% increase in sales this year

alone. This bangin’ rum offers

lip-smacking tastes of banoffee

pie with spicy cinnamon and a

vanilla kick in a homage to the

rums of Jamaica, Barbados and

Trinidad. Blended to perfection

at the Curio distillery, this

revolutionary rum is perfect

for festive fun evenings. Don’t

forget, you can also find

Coyaba Rum in both Tropical

Mango and Salted Caramel

flavours too.

THE CORNWALL

PASTA COMPANY

For some, nothing says ‘winter warmer’ quite like a hearty dish of moreish pasta. Here, one

innovative Cornish chef has taken a love for pasta beyond the typical ‘spag bol’, bringing

together local flavours and authentic methods for some truly delicious results.

Originally from York, once upon a time Nicholas Egan was a professional chef, working

commercially and privately. Taking on roles abroad, Nick found himself found himself

spending time cooking, living and learning in Italy.

Earlier this year, Nick and his other half, former Michelin restaurant manager Priscila Picon,

launched The Cornwall Pasta Company into the world. Based in Falmouth, the launch was

an achievement of years’ worth of planning during which Nick and Priscila hoped to bring a

superior, locally produced pasta to Cornish households. Far from your standard supermarket

bought Penne, Nick’s pastas are bursting with local produce, blended into the pasta to

create rich delicate tastes and brilliantly earthy colours from the Beetroot Lumaconi’s deep

purple to the Cuttlefish Ink’s sultry black. Organic and foraged ingredients feature heavily

in Nick’s pasta and he focuses his foraging sights on a small radius surrounding the family

home. Under the belief that no food should be wasted, he’s constantly looking at what

seasonal ingredient can be incorporated into his pasta creations.

A normal day sees Nick starting at 7am and spending as much as 18 hours a day making

pasta. Nick uses a bronze die for his pasta, making for a considerably noticeable difference

in pasta quality. Its rougher texture allows pasta to cook better and absorb more sauce, a

must for any true authentic pasta dish. After creation, Nick checks each piece for its quality

as well as tasting it to observe its flavour profile before preparing it for the drying process,

Unlike most pasta, Nick also looks to pack as much flavour into each of his pasta ranges to

allow for simple, but perfectly balanced dishes that really lets the pasta shine. Authentically

made and championing flavoursome simplicity, it’s been a welcomed addition into Cornwall’s

foodie producer world and with more innovative creations on the horizon, Nick is just

getting started in turning this simple, versatile food product into a staple Cornish legend at

dinner time.

EXPERIENCE

THE PACKET INN

LAUNCHES NEAR

PRUSSIA COVE

Chef Ben Tunnicliffe and

Head Chef Matt Smith, the

team behind the renowned

Tolcarne Inn in Newlyn,

opened the doors to their

new venture this autumn.

The Packet Inn is an old

coaching inn situated in

Rosudgeon near the iconic

beach of Prussia Cove.

Classing itself as a Cornish

pub for all seasons,

championing country

and coastal produce and

working closely with

local suppliers to create

a colourful, seasonal,

weekly-changing menu

with plenty of vegetarian

and vegan options. From

a tempting array of small

plates to building your

own feasts, no two meals

are intended to be the

same and is a perfect

stop off for a quick

refreshment or a meal for

big appetites.

Having opened on

September 2nd, Ben and

Matt took on the Packet

Inn in the summer of 2020

and despite challenging

circumstances, the two

were determined to see

their new pub come to

fruition. Since its grand

opening, visitors have

raved about the delectable

and reasonably priced

small plate and attentive

staff.

Warm up in Jubilee Pool

For ten years, there were talks of creating a heated pool at Jubilee. The idea was said to have originated

from Charlie Nixon, the brother of former Jubilee Pool Director, Martin Nixon. Following a trip

to New Zealand, where its lively landscapes makes for some of the most incredible geothermal pools

in the world, Charlie suggested the idea in response to a discussion on how some of Jubilee’s visitors

struggled with the brisk waters of the sea pool. A decade and £1.8 million pounds’ worth of funding

later, and the suggestion has finally become a reality.

Of course, the Jubilee team had plenty of help, the £1.8 million invest project owes £540,000 of that

funding to a community of 1,400 as the result of a public share offer, in which 970 of those contributors

are local people. The remaining funds came through a mixture of loans and grants from Power to

Change, the Architectural Heritage Fund and the Cooperative Community Investment Fund. A real

community effort to see this project come to life now means that the pool will be able to open yearround,

offering a better service than ever before. There’s also upgraded changing facilities, showers, a

new café with double the seating capacity and a new multi-purpose community space.

What to Expect

The geothermal pool works by extracting warm water from a 410m deep geothermal well, which is

just ten metres shy of Brown Willy – Cornwall’s highest hill on Bodmin Moor - from sea level, to give

you an idea. Taking the heat from the water withdrawn and using it to heat pumps, distributing it into

the pool via a heat exchanger before re-injecting the cooler water back into the group, means that

the combined system can sustain the temperature of the pool with a very low carbon footprint. In fact,

80% of the new pool’s heat is geothermally sourced; the system is one of the first of its kind in the UK

and is set to act as a pioneering piece of technology for geothermal, low carbon heat supply.

What does all this innovative science lead to? A steamy 35 degrees of saltwater goodness for visitors

to bathe in and soak away the stress of the day in one of Cornwall’s most picturesque settings, offering

a unique alfresco experience within the pre-existing sea pool.

Local Discounts

Now open to the general public, tickets to the pool must be booked online and in advance and in the

true spirit of community, the Jubilee Pool team want to ensure that visiting the pool is affordable for

local people. Two discounts are available, one for Cornwall residents and another for Penzance Town

Council Parish residents, proof of residency is required.

There will be at least five sessions running every day, with morning sessions reserved for adults only.

Additionally, there will be three early evening adult only sessions per week, offering the perfect way to

relax after a hard day’s work.

There’s also hope for more exciting offers and packages for the future, experiences such as ‘geothermal

and fizz’ for sundowners as well as ‘geothermal and dine’ options. Customers will also be able to

combine geothermal sessions with treatments such as facials and massages.

New Year, new adventures

Could 2021 be the year you become your own boss?

Spending months in lockdown has certainly made many people

in the UK start thinking differently about their working lives.

From being furloughed to working longer hours, or even facing

redundancy, this year more than any other has given many of us

cause to question where our careers are headed. For some, it’s

a renewed eagerness to embrace change and start something

amazing of their very own.

Starting your own business can mean doing something you feel

passionate about, building something that’s entirely yours and

having the freedom to work whenever you choose. The first step is

finding that brilliant idea you can turn into a profitable business. It

might be through discovering a skill or talent you didn’t know you

had, developing a hobby you already love or inventing something

completely new that no one’s ever thought of before.

Sophie Tilston, a textile designer based in Falmouth, found that

lockdown gave her the push she needed to start using her talents

and finally get her business off the ground,

“I’ve always experimented with printing my own designs and

products and dreamed of running my own business. For nearly

four years I attended one or two craft fairs a year with some of

my designs, but I was only really testing the waters. Customers’

feedback was always really positive, so when lockdown hit, I

thought ‘I’ve just got to get started properly with this’. The Outset

programme was a really helpful insight into how businesses work. I

found the feedback from the advisors and my group so useful and

the structure of the sessions motivated me to do more each week.”

With an award-winning programme that’s helped over 1,000

individuals start successful businesses across the county in the last

10 years, the right support is something Outset Cornwall has in

spades. Mixing practical online sessions to help start, run and grow

your new business, together with tailored advice from a business

expert, and even an online learning portal, Outset Cornwall is

there to support you on every step of your business journey.

So, if you dream of being your own boss and feel 2021 could be

the year you go for it, contact Outset and start turning your dream

into a reality.

outset.org/cornwall or call 01209 311063.

is traditional British with some

quirky twists, all made on our
