Catch of the day…

The ultimate seafood platter..

A new addition to the best kept secrets archive this week, with a recommendation for a fresh seafood selection to die for.  The Seafood Platter, Beer is a quaint pub with access to the finest, freshly caught seafood.  A really relaxed ‘pub grub’ atmosphere is blown totally out of the water by the special sea food menu.

Beer is a superb little seaside fishing village, well worth visiting for the wonderful coastal walks and beautiful cove.

The pictured ultimate platter needs to be ordered when booking a table to ensure you do not miss out all of the elements, including tiger prawns, crab, mussels, scallops, oysters and cockles.  Stunning and served simply with lemon, bread, butter and aioli.

Sometimes you have to look into the unexpected to find incredible food.

The journey begins…

Over the cliff tops of Branscome towards my Sunday lunch

Over the cliff tops of Branscome towards my Sunday lunch

My fondest childhood memories seem to be consistent with a love of fresh food. Whether it was the anticipation of a hearty beach side Sunday lunch, earned by completing a gruelling but liberating 3 mile cliff top walk, or the fragrant scent of Thai Green Curry emanating from the family kitchen; I always did kick the trend of settling for the usual kids’ fayre of Turkey Dinosaurs, Chips and Peas.

Inspired by my father’s cooking, my experiences of fine to far from fine dining, and my own developing culinary expertise; I hope to take my readers on a journey through the very best restaurants, recipes and best kept secrets across the South of England and beyond. It won’t be all plain sailing…my critique pulls no punches and drives straight to the heart of what we all look for from that first bite…’Wow’.

Simplicity is best. I’ll be looking for the greatest examples of how a simple and fresh set of ingredients can be transformed into a culinary masterpiece.
