BBC Radio Cornwall will be bringing you a taste of Cornish food heaven from the Porthleven Food Festival.

The annual food and music event takes place on Saturday 9 April.

The festival's patron, Anthony Worrall Thompson will be launching the day at 10.15am with a celebrity cookery demonstration.

Cornish chefs like Paul Ainsworth, Jude Kereama, and Paul Ripley will bring local flavours to the cooking stage.

In the evening the marquee becomes an entertainment stage featuring the Cadgwith singers and northern sounds from the 1960s with the band Not The Beatles.

Other highlights throughout the day will include Sweet Flava, Helston School Jazz Orchestra and the Porthleven Youth Silver Band.

There will also be workshops featuring Swamp Circus and the International Schools Theatre Association.

BBC Radio Cornwall's Daphne Skinnard and Tiffany Truscott will also be at the festival.

There will be live coverage from Porthleven during our weekend breakfast and mid morning programmes.

We will have pictures from the festival on the BBC Cornwall website later on Monday 11 April.
