All this is followed by Ugo Massabo’s award-winning artisan tiramisu – choose from original, chocolate or rum. Served in handy and environmentally-friendly glass jars, these little pots of joy are the ultimate hassle-free dessert!

For a Valentine’s meal guaranteed to impress…

Two of our fabulous market producers have teamed up again this year to offer Cornwall’s most desirable Valentine’s Day meal kit. La Pineta Italian and Treway Farm have pulled out all the stops to design a feast of date-night favourites.

Available for pre-order via the Treway Farm website from the 1st Feb for collection at market on Saturday 12th February, the meal kits features an Italian antipasti platter (mixed charcuterie, cheese, breadsticks and olives) to start with.

La Pineta and Treway Farm have joined forces, and the results are alluring!

Moving on to the main event, choose your favourite cut of steak; we’re talking grass-fed beef, impeccably aged for real depth of flavour. It’ll come with sides of locally-sourced seasonal veg – Hasselback Potatoes, herby buttered greens, and a peppercorn sauce. Dessert is La Pineta’s famous homemade tiramisu, and also included are local chocolates to enjoy with your digestif. Speaking of which…

For perfect cocktails and post-meal tipples…

Rosemullion Distillery has created the perfect seasonal rum for Valentine’s Day. They’ve taken their award-winning pot-distilled rum and infused it with chocolate, raspberry and mango before aging it to perfection – just in time for Feb the 14th.

Rosemullion Distillery are hitting all the right notes with this chocolate rum

The International Wine & Spirits Competition called it: “A great expression of cacao, with a full spectrum of rich chocolate notes running throughout. Delicate aromas of molasses pave the way to a palate with rum, raisin and dark cherry flavours.” But we’ll just tell you that it’s ‘ansum!

We look forward to seeing you at market over the next few weeks.
