Caroline's great Cornish breakfast at Surf Haven in Bude

Local ingredients for a great Cornish breakfast

Many of the guests that come to stay at Surf Haven comment on our great Cornish breakfast.  We’re absolutely passionate about making sure our guests get the best possible start to every day.  That’s why we not only insist that you order breakfast on the morning – that’s when you’ll know what you want – but we also cook everything to order using the best local ingredients.

Wherever possible, we source the best quality produce from local suppliers – and by “local” we mean local Cornish suppliers, of course!

So, to give you a flavour of what’s in store for you at the breakfast table each morning, here are just a few of the great ingredients Caroline uses when whipping up a yummy Full ‘Cornish’.

First up, our most local supplier is Pennymill Eggs.  Their hens run free in fields right on the Devon/Cornwall border at Week St. Mary.  We’re assured the eggs laid on the Devon side go to customers in Devon, whilst the Cornish laid eggs come to us!

Also on your plate, you’ll find delicious sausages – an essential ingredient for any great Cornish breakfast.  These come courtesy of Tamblyns, in Pillaton.  On your plate you will find (or can ask for) some of our favourites from their range. They include the fabulous Beef & Tribute Ale sausages and their Breakfast Sausages.  For those that would prefer them, we also keep a stock of their incredible Gluten Free Sausages.

A particular highlight for many guests is the lip-smacking Hog’s Pudding from Kittow’s in St. Austell. You truly need to be taste how good it is! Kittow’s butchers are renowned – a real Cornish family supplying great local produce.

And, last but by no means least, those with a sweet tooth can enjoy our jams and marmalades. Homemade by our friend Judy on her farm in Threemilestone. All the proceeds go to the local Cub and Scout group, so as you tuck into your fresh toast every morning, you can feel even better about the contribution you’re making to the Cornish economy.

So, there you have it. The secret ingredients for a great Cornish breakfast.
