Welcome from Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth

A warm welcome from Paul Ainsworth

Padstow Christmas Festival is a wonderful way to kick off the Christmas season. It’s an excuse to celebrate food, artisan producers and local Cornish ingredients. It’s a time when our little Cornish fishing town is full of food lovers, festive shoppers and buzzing with Christmas spirit!

A warm welcome from Rick Stein

I am very excited about the Padstow Christmas Festival. We’re delighted to have so many exceptional chefs and food writers joining us and we’re all really looking forward to getting together, catching up and celebrating all things festive and culinary in wonderful Padstow. I always really enjoy the food forums, it’s remarkable how interesting they are, not just the panels talking about such things as service charges, the price of fish, and how much we love hospitality, but the contribution from the audience too.

I look forward to seeing you all there.
