Once in a while a project comes along that you simply have to be involved in. 26 Flavours of Cornwall is one of those projects.
A celebration of Cornish food and drink, 26 Flavours will explore familiar and perhaps not-so-familiar flavours, delving deep into their origins to uncover their essence.
There are 26 teams in all, each made up of a writer and a designer. Each pair will focus on a different item of Cornish produce – or ‘flavour’. Our brief is to come up with a piece of artwork that combine words and design in the form of paper table-settings. They’ll be displayed at a special exhibition at Trebah Garden in July (along with posters of the designs).
My design partner, Eleanor Bell and I got lucky with our flavour: wine. Read our first post about our trip to Camel Valley vineyard. Wine tasting, on Bank Holiday Monday in the sunshine – all in the name of research. What could be more perfect than that?
