Nathan Outlaw On Cornwall’s Foodie Finds


Nathan Outlaw chats Cornish culinary favourites…

Favourite Cornish chef?
Any of mine! Chris Simpson, Head Chef at Restaurant Nathan Outlaw, isn’t Cornish but he cooks in Cornwall so I hope that counts. He’s been with me for over 10 years.

Best place to shop for local produce?
Restharrow Farm Shop near Daymer Bay, owned by farmer Richard Hoare.

The working farm at Nancarrow near Truro, Cornwall.

Favourite producers?
Richard Hoare for veg, St Enodoc asparagus, Williams Dairy at Wadebridge and River Amble Creamery for Cornish Jack cheese.

Must-try Cornish dish?
See above, plus the fish – especially mackerel! To drink, Pinot Noir Brut Rose and Darnibole Bacchus from the Camel Valley vineyard.

Favourite smart restaurant and what you’d eat?
Turbot Hollandaise at The Seafood Restaurant, Padstow, where I started my seafood journey as a 19-year-old chef.


Favourite gastropub?
The Cornish Arms in Tavistock (just over the border in Devon, I know!) where John Hooker is doing great things. And St. Kew Inn never disappoints.

Best place for locally-made ice-cream?
Moomaid of Zennor. I love their strawberry ice-cream.

Hidden foodie gem?
Fresh From The Sea in Port Isaac. Owners Calum and Tracey Greenhalgh serve the best crab sandwiches in the world.
