This book describes 30 traditional Cornish festivals and recent revivals, linking them imaginatively with traditional dishes and modern feasts using local ingredients. Each festival is illustrated with a quirky, fun illustration and accompanying recipe, old or new. For each recipe there is a photo of the finished dish. The book provides a lively, sometimes idiosyncratic, look at Cornish history, folklore, food and customs. It guides you around the county and enables you to cook your own Cornish feast.

Review:

'As always with books in this series, the design is clean and sumptuous, with, in this title, not only the usual high standard of photography but also fun illustrations of festival sights by West Cornwall-based Freya Laughton. A departure from the usual more topographical concerns of the Pocket Cornwall series so far, the only question for the bibliophile is not whether to purchase it - but where to shelve it: alongside other Cornish works, or in the kitchen, so those recipes are near to hand?' (Cornish Guardian, 25.04.13) 'An unusual and highly individual take on our feasts and festivals ... recipes ... splendid photographs ... quirky, eye-catching and very amusing illustrations by ... Freya Laughton ... slices of Cornish history and folklore as well as food ... A banquet of a book, as delightful as it is delicious and excellent value.' (The Cornishman, 09.05.13) 'Cooking up a proper feast of Cornish festivals old and new' (Western Morning News, 14.05.13) 'The latest title in the series proves a tasty treat... truly captures the flavour of the place' (Tavistock Times Gazette, 30.05.13) 'a pleasingly designed book of folk celebrations and associated recipes tied to particular places in Cornwall... the colored pictures contribute to its desirability as an object to put on your shelf. (Perceptive Travel, August 2013) 'This lovely little book... a lively look at Cornish history, folklore, food and customs... with Freya Laughton's quirky illustrations adding to the overall picture.' (myCornwall, vol. 2, issue 19, August/September 2013) 'Cornish Feasts and Festivals... lovers of both will find much to enjoy and digest' (Evergreen, Autumn 2013) 'Another little gem in the "Pocket Cornwall" series, this is a well-produced and very colourful light-hearted publication. ... an imaginative little book all round.' (Old Cornwall, vol. XIV, no. 9, Autumn 2013)

About the Author:

Liz Woods trained as a lawyer, but spent most of her career as a college lecturer and manager. She has lived in Cornwall since the late 1990s. Her interest in history, food and folklore inspired her to begin writing her popular Feasts and Festivals blog in 2010. Cornish Feasts and Festivals builds on the success of that, and on the resurgence of interest in local food and cuisine in Cornwall. Liz's poetry has been anthologized by Grey Hen Press. Freya Laughton is a versatile artist, living and working in west Cornwall. Her wide range of work includes cards, drawings and textiles.
