Ben’s New Year Note

It has been another exciting month here with lots of things happening and plans for Christmas and our events for 2018!

All in all 2017 has been a huge year for me, topped off by winning the title of Cornwall Life Magazine Food Hero.

As we move from the colours of autumn to the darkness of winter, 2018 is just around the corner. December is an exciting month kids and adults alike but we are already thinking ahead and into the New Year.

If you need some Twinkling tips for your Christmas then check out my top 12 tips on the website blog.

I’ve been doing some thinking about Christmas and an alternative to a traditional Christmas feast then try our Turbot roasted on the Bone, sprouts, chestnuts, pancetta, roast potatoes, Hollandaise sauce recipe. Perfect for anybody and retains some festive ingredients. It is available on our website.

As we look forward to 2018 join us for a one off opportunity here at Ben Tunnicliffe Sennen Cove. Two Michelin star chefs, one memorable meal. On the 20th January, Xavier Isabal from the Basque country and I will produce a 6-course lunch together – I think it will be something special here at Sennen and is already proving popular with bookings. For more information have a look at the blog post.

Then on 26th January three poets and a musician celebrate birth, death and everything in between. Join Alan Bleakley, Mike Lay, Mike Adams and Frankie Davies on Friday 26th January 2018 from 6.30-10.30pm for a night of poetry and music. For more information see the event blog.

With all that going on, we still taking bookings for Christmas meals and New Year’s Eve. Spend New Year’s Eve by the sea, as we throw a film themed bash. See 2018 in from our fabulous venue, enjoying DJ sets by our brilliant resident DJ Samiad, film quiz, great company and great food. A perfect way to celebrate Christmas and New Year!

Finally, I want to wish you, your family and loved ones a very Merry Christmas from myself, Kinga and the boys and we look forward to seeing you all and another great year in 2018.
