Our tenth birthday celebrations

What a special day: Jamie Oliver and his mentor, the wonderful Gennaro Contaldo, joined us in Cornwall for our official 10th birthday celebrations this week…

Jamie hosted a reunion breakfast at our restaurant in Watergate Bay, having a posh bacon butty and chatting with over 50 graduates of the Fifteen Cornwall Apprentice Scheme past and present, before heading down to the beach to hang out and have some photos taken.

Jamie was having so much fun, he filmed live on Watergate Bay beach for his Facebook feed…

The Fifteen Cornwall Reunion breakfast was the beginning of a day of celebrations with Jamie who also hosted a lunch for loyal supporters of The Cornwall Food Foundation –  the charity behind our apprentice programme and the restaurant.

In the afternoon Jamie spent time with employees, and this year’s 2016 apprentice scheme graduates as well as the new intake who have just started in the kitchen, passing on lots of much valued motivation and encouragement.
