The tradition of the Cornish 'Hevva' cake originates from the pilchard fishing communities. When the fisherman were out at sea, a watchman, known as a 'Huer' would stand on the edge of the cliffs to look out for the pilchard shoals. When he spotted a shoal he would call out 'Hevva! Hevva!' to help the fishermen locate the fish. When the wives at home heard the Huer's cries they knew their husbands would be home shortly. The wives would then make a quick cake full of currants and scored with a criss-cross design to resemble a fishing net full of fish, which would feed the fishermen on their return.

Oak (solid wood)
