World leaders will be treated to meals cooked by award winning Cornish chefs at the G7 summit – with a menu designed to showcase everything Cornwall has to offer.

Tonight (June 11) chef Emily Scott from Watergate Bay is set to serve a specially designed five course meal, including turbot caught fresh off the coast of Newquay by a local fisherman, with Cornish new potatoes and wild garlic pesto and greens from the local Padstow kitchen gardens.

To finish off the evening, leaders will enjoy uniquely Cornish petit fours of Clotted cream fudge, and a mini clotted cream ice cream cone with chocolate earl grey truffles.

The Saturday night dinner will be cooked by chef Simon Stallard from the Hidden Hut in Portscatho.

In a first for a G7 summit, leaders will enjoy a beach BBQ in Carbis Bay, where they will be served canapes of Curgurrell Crab Claws and Portscatho Mackerel, and a main course of seared and smokey Moorland sirloin with Newlyn lobster and  scorched leeks alongside layered Cornish potato chips, St Just purple sprout broccoli and salt baked beetroot.

Afterwards, they will have baked brie, hot buttered rum and toasted marshmallows around firepits on the beach.

To drink, leaders will choose from Cornish sparkling wine, German Riesling, Australian Shiraz, Cornish beer and hedge row fizz cocktail.
