GO FOR A CORNISH
JOIN THE LONDON CHEFS MAKING AN EXODUS TO THE SOUTHWEST
While London has been crowing about its culinary prowess for years, another corner of the country has been quietly turning itself into something of a food mecca, and with dramatic coastal scenery to boot. As well as established talent like Nathan Outlaw, whose restaurant was voted “best in Britain” this year, others have made the pilgrimage, including mega-chef April Bloomfield and Pitt Cue co-founder Tom Adams, who opened Coombeshead Farm last year to great acclaim
(coombesheadfarm.co.uk), and have been joined recently by Tim Spedding, formerly of Clove Club, in the kitchen. Meanwhile, Dan Cox, the erstwhile former executive chef of Simon Rogan’s Fera at Claridge’s, has taken on Crocadon Farm in St Mellion, in which he plans a restaurant, microbrewery, and — true hipster catnip, this — a pottery (crocadon.co.uk).
