Cornish Rhubarb


“We were lucky enough to spend our childhood summers with my grandmother, who lived in Mousehole. Days rolled into weeks and months of Cornish adventures. We played for hours on the beach, and, at other times, turned our backs on the sparkling sea and climbed the steps up and up into the fertile valley behind the village. Our favourite place was ‘the rushing stream’, where a river bounced its way down the hillside and into the harbour. Hours of damming and paddling, with Pooh sticks to die for, all in a moss-laden dingly dell. That childhood memory is rekindled every time I walk there now. In my childhood, the  Gunnera, or Cornish rhubarb, was terrifyingly big, covered in enormous thorns. Today it redeems itself with dramatic flowers, thrown up to mark the end of winter. Cornish Rhubarb on the rushing stream.” – Hilary Stock
