Maybe you’re on holiday and you want something special to cook for dinner. Or you’ve had no luck getting a table at a seaside restaurant. Or perhaps you’re at home and fancy a taste of Cornwall. In these instances, a Cornish food box delivery could be the answer.
Food box deliveries for home cooking became incredibly popular during the pandemic. But they can be enjoyed on holiday too. For many people, a food box delivery may be the easiest way to enjoy the Cornish dining experience, especially this year when local restaurants are either fully booked or short-staffed due to isolation rules.
From freshly caught fish and locally grown vegetables to full meals pre-prepared by top chefs, here’s our pick of the best Cornish food boxes for delivery to your door.
