As part of the Taste of the Spring gourmet break our head chef, Tom Hunter, has created a special five-course tasting menu showcasing the best of local, Cornish spring produce: freshly landed seafood, seasonal fruits and vegetables and locally reared meats. Each course has been paired with a selection of exceptional wines from small artisan producers.
These potatoes are an alternative to dauphinoise, and work particularly well with lamb. The anchovies are not overpowering and are used as a seasoning. This is one of my favourite things to cook and to eat.
Spring is probably the most exciting time of the year for us in the kitchen. We’ve spent months preparing warming winter dishes with root vegetables and game birds and struggling with fish supplies due to the harsh winter weather. Now we’re seeing the spring vegetables turning up at the kitchen door, and the food is naturally becoming lighter to suit the change in the weather and the produce.
