Here's a few places I know of in Cornwall where gluten free food is actually edible.

 

Mary's Tearoom, Tresillian Garden Centre, nr Truro. If you ring ahead (07549758569) she will make you a pasty, including vegetarian, but cream teas are readily available.

Truro market, Lemon Quay. Gluten free pasties, including vegetarian, available if you get there early enough. Not hot ones unfortunately.

Oggy Oggy Pasty Company, Falmouth. Gluten free pasties, including vegetarian, to eat in or take away. A long wait while they are cooked. There's a shop in Truro but I don't know if they do GF as well.

Marsh Vill Gardens, Par. Cream teas from 2pm. Her GF option was a flapjack but she asked for my scone recipe last year. I've not been back to find out if she's now serving them. Lovely garden anyway, well worth a visit and nice people.

The Eden Project has very expensive but quite good GF cake. I haven't found out if they've replaced their diabolical GF bread with the recipe I gave them yet.

Heligan Gardens cafe staff are quite helpful in suggesting options. They offer GF bread but I've not tried it. 

Never assume anything - except an occasional air of intelligence.

Thanks a lot for those, Ruthie, I'm saving them for when we go down next.  We were actually in Truro market last Wednesday, but I didn't see any GF pasties for sale.....mind you, it was very busy and we could hardly get near some of the stalls.

I adore Heligan, I think it's a magical place.  Haven't been for 4 or 5 years now, high time we went again.

The Marsh Villa gardens look nice, haven't been there before.  I do hope they are serving your scones, Ruthie!

wave  I absolutely adore the gardens at Heligan, Sue.  Had a wonderful day there, as I did too at the Eden Project.  Would love to go back to both.

Has anyone tried cornbread,not particularly clued up on GF but made some for my CDWM last week, and I love it, it has a tiny amount of flour in it, which i assume could easily be replaced with a GF substitute.

I used to make cornbread, from a Betty Crocker recipe.

I'll try that again!

I don't often make cornbread but I do use it as a base for a very tasty stuffing at ... well, you know, the C word. There are a huge number of recipes so it's worth experimenting.

I'll be paying Mary's a visit in a couple of weeks, picking up pasties to take away with us for the day. I've been promised I can order a gluten free vegetarian one. I've always indulged in the gluten free cream tea before, which is lovely. I know they sometimes also have cupcakes that are gluten free. I may have to try one out. smile

 

Oh, and Sue, if you're looking for gluten free pasties in Truro market, get there early. If it's busy they sell out quick. Watch out for the huge chunks of GF cake – not good for the figure! Lovely though.
