Goodbye Poldark!

Rena George Cornwall, Fiction, Poldark, Uncategorized 2 Comments

Poldark has come to an end. We left Ross and Demelza sharing a passionate embrace as a spectacular expanse of ocean glinted in the background. These weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster for viewers of the BBC series as our charismatic couple were plunged into one disastrous event after another. And now we must all wait until next year to discover what happens next. The end of the current ten week series reminded me that I have not posted on …

Flying the Flag for Cornwall

Rena George Cornwall, Crime Fiction 2 Comments

If you’ve never been there, or (like me) are a regular visitor and suffering withdrawal symptoms because you’re not actually there at the moment, then here are a few images to wet your appetite. …

Can You Bake a Cornish Pasty? You Can Now…

Rena George Cornwall 4 Comments

  They have a saying in Cornwall that a good diet is having a Cornish pasty in both hands. And when they’re as tasty as the one above then who would disagree? In the interest of research, over many years of visiting Cornwall, I’ve eaten a lot of pasties. Well…you have to, don’t you? Anyway, after all this dedicated tasting business I can report that the bestest EVER pasty comes from Ann’s Pasty Bakehouse (like the one above did)  on …

Poldark Review Episode Eight

Rena George Cornwall, Poldark 2 Comments

Well, Poldark doesn’t do things by halves, does it? With so much gloom, doom and bad news packed into one emotionally pummelled final episode it could have spelled disaster. But it didn’t. The conclusion of this first BBC series was one of the most compelling pieces of drama I’ve ever seen. We had financial ruin, family break up, a disease-racked community, and the loss of a child. And as if that wasn’t enough, there’s a disastrous shipwreck on Napara beach …
