Delicious Cornish Food and Drink Ideas for a Regal Coronation Celebration
If you’re planning a party to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III next weekend, then you’ll love this week’s blog! We’ve hand-selected some of the best Cornish food and drink from our fine county – all of exceptionally high quality and befitting of a royal occasion! And whether you’re hosting a do at home or contributing to a community street party, these Cornish party essentials are certain to delight the taste buds!
A decadent Cornish cream tea
It wouldn’t be a party without a quintessentially Cornish cream tea with lashings of indulgent clotted cream! Cornish Cream has this sorted with their mouth-watering packs of freshly baked scones, jam, and generous portions of Roddas Clotted Cream – all delivered to your doorstep in an insulated cool box.
For that extra touch, add a bottle or two of something alcoholic, like quaffable Cornish Sunset strawberry bubbly or West Country favourite, Tribute Ale – both perfect for an afternoon toast to the king!
A royal brew
His Majesty is known to appreciate a fine cup of tea, with Darjeeling being his favourite! In honour of our new monarch, and in true British tradition, keep the tea flowing with quality teas from Cornish producer, Cornico.
We love Cornico’s Earl Grey Loose Leaf Tea – a sophisticated, strong black tea with a distinctive aroma and a refreshing infusion of Darjeeling, Keemun, Ceylon and Assam.
We’re also fans of Cornico’s Peppermint Loose Leaf Tea – a refreshing herbal infusion that makes a wonderful caffeine-free alternative for any time of day.
Both teas are available in an attractive 500g glass display jar that can be refilled with convenient 250g or 500g bags.
A splendid cup of coffee
Having received multiple rave reviews, this coffee is something out of the ordinary, and whether you buy it as whole bean, or in your preferred choice of grind, this is a coffee to serve proudly to friends.
Spoil party guests with rounds of moreish crab sandwiches – a Cornish favourite that’s worthy of this special occasion!
For the freshest crab caught off Cornwall, Fresh Cornish Fish sells Pure White Crab Meat, Dressed Crab, Whole Cooked Crab, Brown Crab Meat, and 50/50 Pots – hand-picked in Newlyn, straight from the daily catch, and couriered to your home!
Simple yet scrumptious
For an effortless way to feed hungry partygoers, stock up on Chunky Hog Roast & Caramelised Onion Sausage Rolls from award-winning producer, Phat Pasty! Made with British Farm Assured Pork, pulled pork and caramelised onions in a golden puff pastry casing, these savoury delights make a scrummy bite to eat!
Phat Pasty also make a tasty plant-based option – check out their Chunky Vegan Sausage Rolls, lovingly made from wheat protein and vegan-friendly flavourings. Place your order online via Phat @ Home for handy home delivery.
In patriotic red, white, and blue, this cheese duo consists of World Cheese Award Champion, Cornish Blue, which has a deliciously gentle sweetness, and best-selling Cornish Brie with a heavenly mild and creamy flavour.
We think this bundle is a fun addition to a Coronation party cheeseboard – just make sure you don’t leave it too late, as cheese this good doesn’t hang around for long!
Soft and chewy on the inside and crisp on the outside, these Italian-style treats are available in an array of gorgeous flavours – think pistachio & white chocolate, red velvet, and mocha, filled with the tastiest buttercream, ganache, conserve, or crème patisserie.
Hire of the macaron stand is included with your order, so that’s the dessert table centre piece organised!
The taste of spring
Master Cornish gin distillery, Tarquin’s Gin, brings us their special limited-edition Cucumber & Mint Gin – a light and fresh, small-batch gin that makes a wonderful spring-summer drink. Inspired by Cornish kitchen gardens, this glorious gin has crisp floral cues and a subtle sweetness.
Serve paired with a Mediterranean tonic over ice and garnished with fresh mint and a cucumber ribbon. How delightfully refreshing is that!
