Welcome from Rick Stein, Paul Ainsworth and Nathan Outlaw

A warm welcome from Paul Ainsworth

Padstow Christmas Festival has become a favourite fixture in our diary at The Ainsworth Collection, and one that the team and I really look forward to. It’s the perfect time for food lovers to gather, meet some of their favourite chefs, and watch amazing cooking techniques.

Padstow itself is decorated with Christmas lights and the whole place feels really festive. I’m delighted the festival is coming back this year, and I hope everyone supports it.

A warm welcome from Nathan Outlaw

What a strange couple of years we’ve had! Very little good news and not much to look forward to either – but that’s all about to change! Padstow Christmas Festival is back, bigger and better than ever!

I’m really excited about returning to the festival to see old friends and meet new ones. It will be wonderful to see (and taste) what our artisan producers have been doing since we’ve been away.

I’ve said before that the festival marks the beginning of the Christmas season for me and it really wasn’t the same without it, so I hope you’ll be coming along to enjoy everything on offer.

A warm welcome from Rick Stein

Very excited that the Padstow Christmas Festival is returning after two years. All the chefs and food writers that we’ve invited are coming and are really looking forward to it, it should be a good one. Personally what I love are the food forums and we’re already thinking of some ideas for some cracking topics to discuss.
