Gourmet gossip Autumn 2018

We catch up with all the latest news from some of our favourite chefs, eateries, hotels and pubs.

Welcome to the Cornish Pizza Company

Based in the vibrant village of St Agnes on Cornwall’s dramatic north coast you’ll find the award-winning Cornish Pizza Company, offering a mouth-watering selection of authentic thin crust pizzas packed full of fresh, locally sourced ingredients. More than your typical pizza takeaway, Tim and Fiona also provide a tempting selection of really good quality Cornish craft beers, cider and Polgoon and Camel Valley wines. Pizza names are dedicated to the area’s colourful mining history and include a burst of flavour combinations that will suit any palette. Here at Cornwall Living we like the sound of the Wheal Coates, with melting lumps of soft, spicy Cornish nduja salami scattered over the classic tomato sauce and mozzarella base, topped with a sprinkle of Grana Padano and finished with fresh rocket…

Variety is the spice of life

A question that crops up time and time again. This is very much true at the Alverne Restaurant in Penzance, which you’ll quickly realise when you look at the menu.

With a range of tapas options that include, but are certainly not limited to, pan fried tiger prawns with lime, ginger and coriander; Catalan almonds, sauvignon dressing and curried artichoke veloute; confit of chicken and wings with a barbeque glaze and Asian salad; as well as a sumptuous selection of mains, from the delicious Panko chicken burger to the Mediterranean risotto with almonds, you’re guaranteed to find something to tickle your fancy at this fantastic, family run restaurant.

There’s also a delectable selection of light bites to choose from while you await your main and if, after all that, you still have room for something sweet, you certainly won’t be left disappointed. But don’t just take our word for it!

Warm the cockles this autumn at the Lemon Arms, Mylor

Autumn is one of our favourite times of the year to get out there and explore Cornwall. It’s quieter now that the kids have gone back to school, and there’s something magical about the landscape as the greens of summer turn auburn and fallen leaves begin to crunch underfoot.

Mylor is the perfect place to spend an afternoon. Wander around the creek and fill your lungs with the salty sea air while you watch the world on the water bob by. Then, to rest your weary feet and warm your cockles, retreat to the Lemon Arms, with its roaring fire, hearty menu full of local produce and a well-stocked bar filled with Cornish tipples.

For a taste of the ocean, you’ll be tempted by the daily specials menu, which features the catch of the day – always different, depending on what the local fishermen have brought home!

More than just a stunning view

Opposite the ferry stop in Rock, you needn’t walk much further than No. 1 Rock Road, where visitors and furry friends can find a warm, friendly welcome.

Breakfast is served from 10.30am, followed by lunch, cream teas, dinner and even a roast on Sundays, with food and wine specials, both reflecting the seasons and championing the area’s rich produce.

Indeed, whether you fancy supping on a cocktail while drinking in one of the best views in Rock, or getting the whole gang or office together for Christmas, this is the place.

It lends itself perfectly to celebrating the New Year too, so why not bring it in whilst watching the fantastic firework display over Padstow?
