One of the highlights of the year, the annual Fowey Royal Regatta festival runs from Sunday 14th to Sunday the 20th August. The event calendar is bustling with a carnival, contests and firework displays, accompanying one of Britain’s top sailing events which guests can enjoy for free. The Regatta has a history of attracting rather famous faces to the event over the years, including Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and Queen Elizabeth the second, hence the name, ‘Royal’.
Our head chef, Richard Massey has put together a simple recipe for his delicious white chocolate mousse, an easy dessert option for your dinner party.

However, these can be substituted with any fruit or nut of your choice, as the mousse is a fantastically versatile addition to any dessert.

Ben Bass’s Potted Smoked Salmon with Lemon Purée and Poppy Seed Bread
This is the perfect dish if you are entertaining or wanting to chill out on Boxing Day in front of the TV. I would recommend making it well in advance, or at least a few hours before you plan to serve it so it can reach the right temperature and consistency. You could also substitute the hot salmon with crab meat or smoked mackerel.
Fowey is a town steeped in history, bearing associations with the literary world due to its once-residing novelist, Daphne Du Maurier. Daphne spent many childhood holidays near Fowey, and in her adult life relocated to the beautiful town from London, continuing to write and gaining inspiration from Fowey and its surrounding area.
We know England isn’t exactly renowned for its hot, sunny days, but here in Cornwall there’s a multitude of things to do when the weather isn’t so great. Here are some great spots nearby to keep you busy, that don’t rely on sunshine and warm weather to enjoy yourself.
