For a taste of what you can expect, why not try this delicious recipe from head chef, Adam Cook?

Pappiotte Brill, with Saffron Fondants, Spring Greens, Dill & Crayfish Veloute. Finished with Micro Thai Basil.

Be prepared
Have a good fish stock prepared the day before, by bringing water, fish bones and spare vegetable offcuts (onion, fennel, celery, carrot, bay leaf, thyme, bit of white wine, salt and pepper) to the boil. Take off the heat and leave covered for a couple of hours before sieving.

Start with your fondants
Peel and square up potatoes (maris piper potatoes are great for this). Cut them with ring cutters.
Seal and colour with oil and a little butter, then turn them over.
Add fresh garlic , thyme, vegetable stock (fresh is best), saffron and salt and pepper. Transfer to a suitable and deep enough baking tray, cover with parchment paper and tin foil and bake for aprox 15-20 mins.

Next, make your veloute
To make your veloute, add your fish stock, 1 diced shallot and 50ml of white wine to a pan, add 150ml double cream. When the stock is reduced by half, boil on a high heat for three minutes, add salt and pepper to taste, take off the heat and add fresh dill and crayfish tails (when ready to serve).

Prepare your Bril papiotte
Prepare your Brill papiotte by placing the fillets in a large square of parchment paper. Add a knob of butter, a dash of white wine, fresh samphire (optional), salt and pepper, fresh dill, and a segment of lemon. Tie the paper up at the top, so that it makes an enclosed parcel, and bake for 7-8 minutes. Keep it in the parcel until you are ready to serve.
Adam likes to cook his spring greens (cut fine, but having taken out the middle stem), add in a knob of butter and a dash of water, before seasoning with salt and pepper.

Serve and enjoy!

Where Do We Source Our Fresh Local Fruit & Veg?

It’s a question we are often asked by guests here at Sennen, perhaps after they have enjoyed a dish packed with seasonal greens, or one of our homemade ice creams laced with summer fruit. The answer is that we are very lucky to have great relationships with local growers within a short distance of Sennen Cove, and it’s thanks to these relationships that our menu packs a fresh punch all year round.

One such grower is Bosavern Community Farm, which is located just a few miles away near St Just. This not-for-profit social enterprise is a community initiative to produce and sell local food, and to encourage people to come together to use the land for educational, environmental and social purposes.

The Bosavern polytunnels, fruit cages, bee hives and hens are kept busy supplying a farm shop, a veg box scheme, local markets and businesses like ours. We talk to the team every week to find out what’s in abundance before placing an order, and our fresh veg is picked and transported the next day. It’s the epitome of field-fresh, low food miles sourcing and we love it!

Another fantastic local grower is Alsia Cross Market Garden, which is also just a short drive away in St Buryan. Ben has been working with these guys for many years – first at The Tolcarne and now at Ben Tunnicliffe Sennen Cove, and we really rate the produce and service.

Alsia Cross Market Garden is an organic family farm growing vegetables, salads and herbs. The team supply a shop in St Just as well as a small number of local restaurants – so we count ourselves very lucky!

We have huge respect for the people growing such fabulous produce, and we treat the fruits of their labours with the utmost respect. We are lucky to be able to offer an evolving menu of seasonal specials designed by Ben, which gives our chefs the opportunity to showcase these fresh ingredients as they arrive at the kitchen door – after the short journey from the field.
