Press Release: June Menu News 2016 – 25 May 2016

The perfect time to try our signature 5 & 7 course taster menus and a unique Champagne Tasting Opportunity

For many, our 5 or 7 course Taster menu with wine pairing is the very essence of eating at Fifteen Cornwall.

Taking Jamie’s philosophy of simple Italian dishes and bold flavours, but adding our own Cornish twist – our talented team of chefs putt local produce to delicious & innovative use – matched with show stopping wines by Head Sommelier Elly Owen.

Our front of house team share their expert knowledge of food and wine as they guide you through the Taster menu, from Antipasto, to Insalata, (pictured centre, Octopus carpaccio, agretti & blood orange), Primi, Secondi, and Dolci / Formaggi.

June is the perfect time of year to join us for dinner as the summer evenings are at their lightest and longest and you can enjoy our world class sea views.

Don’t forget our menus change daily as we only work with the freshest ingredients of the highest quality

A unique Champagne tasting opportunity

Our Head Sommelier, Elly Owen, along with the Fifteen Cornwall Wine Team recently spent a day taste testing with Elly’s wine hero Tom Stevenson, regarded as the world’s leading authority on Champagne.

After their battle of the bubbles taste testing and a small workshop led by Tom, he talked the team through how Champagne aged in a Magnum develops and evolves.

With a larger ratio of wine to air in the bottle but the same sized neck as a standard bottle, Magnums develop more slowly and consistently, offering additional complexity and structure.

When you order a glass of Champagne at Fifteen Cornwall we now serve it from a Magnum, a unique tasting opportunity. See a sample wine list

It’s our 10th birthday year

The sun was shining for Fifteen Cornwall’s 10th birthday celebrations on May 16 as the chefs, apprentices and graduates gathered on the beach below the landmark restaurant with our founder, celeb chef and campaigner, Jamie Oliver.

Since opening in 2006, the team has served nearly 750,000 meals, trained 180 young apprentice chefs, produced 112 graduates (some of whom have gone on to head up some of the South West’s finest eateries), and generated £30 million of sales with 100 percent of profits going back into the development of young people and local Cornish suppliers.

Not only has its continued support of vulnerable young people and community producers made Fifteen a unique dining destination, but its team of innovative chefs and creative Italian-Cornish fusion menus has secured its status as one of the front runners in the South West’s booming foodie-scene.

Celebrating the big one-zero with over 50 of the restaurant’s graduates at a reunion breakfast on Monday, Jamie Oliver said:

‘It’s hard to believe it’s already been 10 years since I came down to Watergate Bay and started the Fifteen Cornwall restaurant and Apprentice Programme. It’s been one hell of a ride, but it absolutely remains one of the things I’m most proud of. The team have produced chefs, chefs and more chefs, and are still knocking out incredible food day in, day out, year after year. Thank you to everyone in the Fifteen Cornwall team, as well as all our wonderful friends and supporters who’ve helped us along the way.’

The reunion breakfast kicked off the birthday bash, with Jamie also hosting a lunch at the beach-side restaurant for loyal supporters of Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall, the apprentice scheme and The Cornwall Food Foundation.
