It’s September which means it’s officially food festival season! As lovers of locally sourced and produced grub, we’re a team of shall we say, food enthusiasts here at Luxury Coastal, so we are more than a little delighted that the time of year to indulge our appetites has yet again rolled round so quickly.
Lucky for us too, our stomping ground of Devon and Cornwall host some pretty awesome noshful events throughout September, and now that our swimming costumes have been firmly packed away, we are happily (and unashamedly) circling these in our calendars as ‘not to be missed’. Hopefully we’ll inspire you to come along and tuck in with us. See you there!
