The latest South West foodie events and news for your calendar

Join Mark Hix and friends for supper

Chef Mark Hix is kicking off the new year in style with a series of Meet the Producer evenings at his Dorset dining pub. Mark has invited some of his chums from the indie food and drink scene to The Fox Inn at Corscombe where they’ll join him in throwing one-off feasts celebrating local produce.

The series starts with a Black Cow Vodka Supper on January 19. Mark will serve a bespoke four-course menu paired with Black Cow cocktails from founders Jason Barber and Paul Archard. Tickets £85 per person.

Feast at the farm

A new series of Farm Suppers commences at Nancarrow Farm near Truro in January (pictured top). Set in the Oak Barn with crackling fires and live music, the sociable suppers are a great excuse to get the gang together and feast on local seasonal food.

Also in the pipeline are Sunday roasts. The centrepiece of the two-course lunches will be own-reared organic beef and lamb from the farm, served with just-picked veggies.

Exmoor Food Festival

Get involved in Exmoor Food Fest

Exmoor Food Festival returns in February with a month of feasting events across the moor. It’s a fabulous excuse to explore Exmoor’s unique food and drink culture, with participating restaurants, pubs and foodie venues creating special menus and offers.

The celebrations kick off on January 25 with a special launch dinner at Pyne Arms in East Down, where head chef Ellis Pannell will join forces with other local chefs to craft a multi-course feast.

A seat at the farm table

Just when we thought there was nothing left for the team at Darts Farm to turn their hands to, the foodies have unveiled a new restaurant at the destination farm shop in Topsham, Devon.

Opening early 2022, The Farm Table will showcase the amazing produce grown and reared on the farm, as well as wines from its nearby vineyard, Pebblebed. A line-up of wood-fired sourdough pizzas will sit alongside flame-cooked Ruby Red beef, fresh fish and own-grown vegetables.
