Cooking up a storm at G7


Celebrated Cornwall-based Chef Paul Ainsworth is attending and cooking at the Cornwall House exhibition this week in association with the G7.

Guests of the event will enjoy signatures from Ainsworth’s restaurants including Michelin-starred No6, Caffè Rojano and The Mariners Public House in Rock.

The aim of the Cornwall House exhibition at Falmouth University is to provide a showcase for the best Cornwall has to offer, shining a light on Cornwall as a vibrant region with a rich mining, farming and fishing heritage, innovative green energy, food and drink, and space and aerospace technology.

Ainsworth commented: “The G7 Summit is a huge opportunity to showcase some of the exciting things happening within the county – including the food and drink sector – and I’m thrilled to be involved and championing our brilliant local producers.”

Organised by the Cornwall Development Company, a wholly-owned Cornwall Council company, Cornwall House has been developed as a partnership between Cornwall Council, Falmouth University, Cornwall Trade and Investment, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership, Cornwall Chamber of Commerce and business partnerships and exhibitors.

Cornwall Trade and Investment has, meanwhile, launched a short film diving into the local stories behind Cornwall’s award-winning food and drink industry.

Narrated by and starring Paul Ainsworth, the film showcases some of the incredible ingredients, suppliers and produce that the region is now famous for.
