Cornwall Food Festival 2010 Preview

A month today I'll have a purse full of money, an empty cupboard and a blog ready to be written as it's just a month to go until the Cornwall Food and Drink Festival 2010.

My favourite chef Chris Eden from The Driftwood at Portscatho will be cooking there. (Mental note: must book birthday meal there). Again I could go on and on about how much I love the place...but you can read it again here.

And the lovely Ben Tunnicliffe formerly of The Abbey in Penzance now of The Scarlet Hotel at Mawgan Porth. Two years ago he did an amazing beetroot and blue cheese salad. It was incredible.

Exhibitors include some of my favourites Roddas, Roskillys, Healeys Cider Farm, Deli Farm Charcuterie and the Cornish Sea Salt Company.

I'll also be visiting The Cheese Shop stall to stop up on some non cows milk cheeses to keep me going. While the other half enjoys indulging in as much brie as he likes!

Crispy Cornish Brie with Sweet Chilli Sauce (serves 2).....

1 small Cornish brie (about 125g/5oz)

1 egg
1 handful of breadcrumbs
3 tbsp plain flour
1 pint of vegetable/groundnut oil
4 tbsp sweet chilli sauce (I must blog the recipe for this one...)

Pour the oil into a heavy based based and heat for a minute of two. Cut the brie into six triangles. On 3 plates put the beaten egg, flour and breadcrumbs.

Roll each chunk in the egg, then the flour, then the egg again, then the breadcrumbs. Test the oil is hot enough by putting a small chunk of bread in. If it fiercely sizzles it's ready. Carefully put the brie pieces in two at a time until golden brown. When all six after cooked split between two plates and serve with the sweet chilli sauce.
