Jamie Porter, former senior sous chef at Rick Stein’s Seafood eating place in Padstow, Cornwall, has been appointed to his first head chef function across the county.
He will be part of the 15-bedroom Old Coastguard lodge in Mousehole at the south coast subsequent month, after spending 4 years as a contract chef and food stylist. He formerly spent 3 and a half of years in Padstow on the Seafood restaurant.
After growing up in Padstow, Porter entered hospitality whilst he secured a chef apprenticeship at Cornwall College whilst working at the Seafood’s sister eating place, St Petroc’s Bistro. He then went directly to work on the 3-Michelin-starred Waterside Inn in Bray, Berkshire, earlier than returning to Cornwall in 2010.
Porter said he “couldn’t be happier” to be provided the location at the Old Coastguard, that’s one among 3 hotels to make up the EatDrinkSleep organization. “I was brought up managing the fish from my Dad’s boat and this brings me complete circle. I’ve discovered so much from my mentor on the Seafood restaurant, Stephane Délourme, in particular approximately the way to prepare dinner actually with fish, and I’m truly confident this sets me up perfectly for running on the Old Coastguard.”
Charles Inkin, founder of Eat drink sleep along with his brother Edmund, delivered: “It is such splendid information to have Jamie becoming a member of us in Mousehole. His history at the Seafood eating place sits so nicely with our preference to make the maximum of our proximity to Newlyn and the fish marketplace.
“Our visitors at the Old Coastguard must be taking part in the very pleasant seafood and we’ve the massive self-belief that Jamie brings just the right competencies to make that occur.”
Porter will update Matt Smith.
EatDrinkSleep operates the Gurnard’s Head in St Ives, Cornwall, and the Felin Fach Griffin pub with room inside the Brecon Beacons, along the Old Coastguard.
Restaurants in Edinburgh are amongst the best inside the UK. I bet there are two elements which surely set the Edinburgh eating place scene apart from the competition…
…The intense sort of global cuisine and the choice of restaurants specializing in Scottish delicacies.
Scottish cuisine you say? What on the planet is that? Hideous helpings of uncooked meat and poo flutes of pig’s blood?
Think again, my expensive buddy. Our cooks are pretty adept at complementing domestically sourced meat produce like Aberdeen Angus or seafood which include salmon with a sortiment of the kingdom’s favorite veggies.
Scottish cheese is also a normal feature on Scottish menus along with fruit sorbets, purees and sauces. Nighttime at a Scottish eating place can have diners looking past the good deal-discussed stereotypes.
