We had the pleasure of meeting Prince Charles at The Food Fair on the Green at Exeter Cathedral on Tuesday 19th July. It was a Taste of the West event to celebrate the prize winners on the occasion of Taste of the West’s 25th Anniversary. A hamper was presented to the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall after the Fair, which included Hugo’s Granola, Hugo’s Birchermüesli and Blueberry and Apple Porridge. The whole event was bathed in hot sunshine and was a huge success.

I know people think of mueslis and granolas as ’good-for-you’ cardboard-tasting sawdust, but Hugo’s award winning breakfast cereals are produced for taste AND just so happen to be good for you as well!
Well-crafted, slow-baked granolas, mueslis full of fruit, nuts, seeds and flavour, and low in sugar. Not mass produced but handmade, using Cornish and British products where possible, natural and healthy, no added salt, colouring or preservatives.
We believe these are the best in breakfast cereals, for the most important meal of the day. Our cereals are created, mixed and packed in our purpose built production kitchen in Cornwall.
To serve; soak the mueslis overnight or drench in milk, be it cows or soya, or apple juice for a lovely creamy breakfast in the morning. Sprinkle the granolas over yoghurt, or fresh fruit or a smoothie.
Store in an airtight container to retain the freshness.
Hugo's Breakfast cereals are ‘top of the range’, made with mostly Cornish grown cereals and Cornish honey and apple juice, but above all; they are simply delicious!
Have I said that before?

Hugo's Granola is a Finalist in the Taste of the West ‘Supreme Champion Product’ awards! We attended the awards ceremony held in Exeter Cathedral, in early October. We were one of three finalists in the Sweet Bakery category.
The Great Cornish Food Store in Truro is now open. www.greatcornishfood.co.uk/store/ Opened in June, next to Truro's new Waitrose, this is the new culinary centre of Cornish food. We are proud to be selling there along with lovely meat, fish, bread and vegetables and a high-end cafe run by Michelin stared chef, Paul Ripley.
Hugo's breakfast cereals are now packaged in biodegradable boxes. I have always been aware that land-fill is now full in Cornwall. We have changed to biodegradable bags in card boxes. So even if the boxes are put into land-fill, they will become part of the soil within a year - and not stay as plastic for a thousand years!
Our cereals all have a 'Best Before' date, after this date, the taste will slowly deteriorate but is perfectly edible! This is the time to turn Hugo's cereals into something else. Go to 'Recipes' to use up out-of-date granola or muesli.
We had a great Padstow Christmas Festival - 1st to 4th December 2016. It was surprising how many people made it a mission to visit our little stall to buy some Muesli, Granola or Porridge. We also sold the Christmas Muesli Prune Bar. The recipe is now in the 'Recipes' section on this site. I have also posted the recipes for my Porridge Demo that I presented to well over 150 people on morning 2nd December, in the Sharp's Chefs Marquee.
