Fairings biscuit recipe has been handed down through generations, using ginger, cinnamon, coriander and pimento to give that warmed, spiced taste – the rest is our little secret!
Protecting what you love is only natural. In 2007, Furniss secured an official trademark to preserve Cornwall’s most famous biscuit. Now Furniss are the only bakery licensed to make Original Cornish Fairings™. If you find yourself eating only one then stopping, please check the pack…they might be imposters.
Cornish through and through, Fairings should be gently spicy, crunchy and very moreish. The name ‘Fairing’ comes from a present bought at the fairs which were held every year at Whitsuntide and Corpus Christi – a little gift for a loved one or a sweetheart consisting of a gingerbread, sugared almonds, cinnamon sticks or macaroons.
