Midsummer Feast Night | Al Fresco Dining in Cornwall

By 3 August 2022 No Comments
Cornwall Midsummer Feast Night

We had such a wonderful evening hosting our first Treseren Feast Night in July. The afternoon Cornish mizzle cleared just in time for guests to gather in the gardens to enjoy canapés and live music from guitar and vocal duo Scenic Route, setting the scene for an evening of great food and drink in a relaxed atmosphere. Our signature elderflower, raspberry and gin ‘Garden Sparkler’ cocktail was the perfect welcome drink, and a bespoke wine list accompanied dinner. 


Once seated at our banqueting tables it was time for the feasting to really commence, as chefs Sarah and Zoe delighted everyone with platters of lovingly prepared locally sourced dishes.


To Start –

A selection of canapés

Homemade bread, olive oil and balsamic reduction, whipped Cornish butter

Main Feast

Eight-hour slow roasted shoulder of pork marinated in Treseren herbs and spices


Smoked tofu and sesame steak marinated in harissa, lemon and maple syrup

To Accompany

Leeks and runner beans with lemon and capers
Fennel and orange salad with candied walnuts
Rosemary and garlic roasted hassleback potatoes
Heritage carrots with maple syrup and cumin

To End

Lemon tart with raspberry coulis
Marshmallows for toasting


It was such a privilege to welcome guests to Treseren to experience the special atmosphere of this historic Mine Captain’s House and gardens. Is there anything better than bringing people together to share good food in good company? We of course have to thank the wonderful Cornish suppliers that helped put this magical evening together –

Don’t forget to join the Treseren Events Club for future updates – we are a small and intimate venue, so tickets will always be limited, but our club members will always be the first to hear about upcoming events.
