Nancarrow’s 1000 Mouths event returns for 2019, shining a light on the region’s most progressive farmers and producers – in collaboration with a line-up of celebrated guest chefs. 1000 Mouths will raise money for Cool Earth and Cornwall Wildlife Trust.
Michelin star chef Paul Ainsworth will headline the event, and will be joined over the weekend by Tom Griffiths of Flank, London, Ben Tish – who is returning to the farm after much success with his latest book Moorish – and James Whetlor, founder of Cabrito.
Over the course of the weekend, the Nancarrow team and guest chefs will be feeding 1,000 visitors at a series of evening feasts and dinners held in the farm’s beautiful barns and buildings. The menus will provide a true nose-to-tail dining experience, celebrating the finest produce (and producers) from the South West – including The Cornish Mushroom Company, Padstow Kitchen Garden and Curgurrell Farm, alongside organic beef from one of Nancarrow’s Red Devon bullocks.
“We’re so thrilled to be celebrating 20 years of organic farming this year,” says Steve Chamberlain, partner at Nancarrow. “Farming in harmony with nature has never been more important, and we’re delighted to welcome some incredible producers who share this approach for a weekend of feasting.”
Daytime guests can enjoy a range of activities and traditional crafts, from leather making and wool spinning, to wild walks and apple juicing. Steve Lamb of River Cottage will host a series of talks and demos throughout the day, and there will be the opportunity to not only meet some of Cornwall’s newest and most innovative producers, but sample their food and drink too.
Jack Bristow, Nancarrow’s head chef, says: “Our 1000 Mouths event is an extension of our approach to food and farming, and we’re really excited to be welcoming some incredible like-minded chefs to the farm – it’s going to be an amazing weekend.”
Further details and early bird tickets will be released on 14th June, and will be available on the Nancarrow website: www.nancarrowfarm.co.uk
The Nancarrow family farm has been rearing traditional breed cattle and sheep, and rare breed pork, for nearly 250 years. 20 years ago, in 1999, the farm received organic status from the Soil Association, and today Nancarrow’s organic produce is reared, prepared, cured and consumed entirely on the farm where it is enjoyed by guests throughout the year.
