CHEF DEMOS

Get inspired to try your hand after watching local chefs demonstrate unusual and exciting seafood combinations,  showcasing the native Fal Oyster.

Experts are on-hand to divulge their tips on choosing, preparing and cooking the great variety of fresh sustainable seafood readily available in Cornwall.

OYSTER BAR

With methods that have changed little in the last 500 years, only vessels powered by sail or oar can operate.  Their catch the native Fal Oyster with its salty liquor and sweet flesh, is generally considered far superior to the Pacific variety.  Les Angell and his team run the Oyster Bar, shucking fresh oysters to order each day – pair yours with Champagne for a perfect match.

SEAFOOD BAR

Hosted by St Michaels Resort, and bringing Cornwall’s abundant larder to your plate, the Seafood Bar’s brassiere style menu includes a tantalising choice of Tregida Smoked Ling Chowder, Spiced Crispy Squid or Oysters as well as delicious Nam Jim Dressed Crab.

 

CHAMPAGNE BAR

Sit, relax and enjoy the atmosphere of the festival whilst sipping on a glass of Champagne from one of the world’s leading houses, Laurent Perrier.
