This month we’re celebrating British Food Fortnight at The Alverton.
British Food Fortnight runs from 18th September until 3rd October and is a celebration of all of the ‘delicious and diverse’ food that is produced across our isles.
We’re proud to say that our menus change with the seasons to showcase the very best of the South West. And our cuisine is always prepared in simple, effective ways that let our impressive produce do the talking.
For this year’s British Food Fortnight, we’re celebrating all of the amazing produce that heralds from Cornwall, by highlighting our local food heroes including the farmers, producers, suppliers and chefs who create the exceptional Cornish products that we use across our hotel and at our sister hotel, The Greenbank.
Here at The Alverton, our Executive Chef Nick Hodges takes pride in his local ‘plough to plate’ ethos of The Alverton’s kitchen, which he has been shaping since 2018. Alongside Head Chef Errki Mikk, the taltented duo have great relationships with many Cornish producers – whether it be the fruit and vegetables incorporated into our dishes, the dairy products in our afternoon tea, or even the artisan spirits we use to whip up our cocktails.
