Jack Stein said, “I am delighted to be hosting this year’s festival. It has given me this unique opportunity to gather friends who I’ve met over the years to connect and celebrate delicious food in my home county. The location is fantastic, overlooking the Camel Estuary and Padstow, and I’m looking forward to introducing everyone to where I grew up, how it inspired my career, while sharing hints and tips on how to best prepare the delicious local produce that Cornwall provides.”

Festival Director Roxy Bater said, “We knew that Jack would do an excellent job at maintaining a Cornish feel to the festival whilst inviting down world-renowned restaurateurs and chefs. Cornwall is the home of so many incredible chefs, producers and creatives. We are excited to share their skills with audiences who love this stretch of coastline as much as we do.”
