Watch BBC2 at 8.30pm on Thursday (2 Dec) and you’ll see chef and local food hero, Rick Stein, sliding round the ice rink at the Eden Project.
In the first of the two-part series, Rick Stein’s Cornish Christmas, the chef explores the festive traditions of his adopted county. As well as skating at Eden, he tries out wassailing (singing to promote a good harvest), listens to Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends sing, and prepares a Christmas banquet.
The programme was, of course, filmed before our ice rink was closed due to flood damage. We’re repairing the rink right now and we’ll keep you updated on when it opens again on this blog, and on our website, Facebook page and Twitter feed.
