On this Cornwall inspired course our very own Cornish chef George Pascoe will take you through an exciting cookery experience of all things truly Cornish, from dressing a crab to making the quintessential Cornish pasty (to granny's own recipe).
After completing the Cornwall in a Day course you will be truly equipped to recreate some "proper" Cornish delicacies for friends and family in your own home.
