... answers from Chris Riddle

Chris Riddle
Chris Riddle

The Secretary of the Royal Cornwall Show Chris Riddle is also a man at the heart of many agricultural initiatives in Cornwall.
He chooses his Cornish "this or that?"
1. Cornish or British?
Cornish of course! Although I am not a believer in independence for Cornwall or anything of that sort, I still feel that we are definitely rather different than the rest of those poor souls the wrong side of the Tamar.
2. Meat or fish?
Meat - preferably a local roast rib of beef cooked fairly rare in an Aga and surrounded by crunchy roast potatoes (Cornish of course!)
3. Coast or country?
Coast - especially in the winter with a gale howling OR on a still May evening eating fish and chips on the dunes at Rock looking across to Padstow.
4. Dogs or cats?
Although we have always had dogs I think that I somehow prefer cats. Much more self-sufficient creatures.
5. St Ives or St Agnes?
It would have to be St Ives - mainly because of the large number of wonderful restaurants. I particularly like the Seafood Café where you choose the fish or shellfish you like the look of and then decide how you want it cooked and what to accompany it. All very casual and welcoming.
6. 'Obby 'Oss or Flora?
Living fairly near Padstow it would have to be 'Obby 'Oss although, much to my disgust, I have never actually been!
7. TV or radio?
TV - particularly a good block-buster movie - real escapism!
8. 'Trelawney' or 'Camborne Hill'?
Trelawney - as sung at the end of the pre-show service of thanksgiving in the main ring at the Royal Cornwall Show on the evening before the show opens. Very moving.
9. Tea or coffee?
Tea, especially when drunk in true Cornish fashion with a pasty!
10. Positive or negative?
Positive - there's plenty of negativity around without adding to it!
