Welcoming Mariana

Drum roll please as we welcome a new face to the Fifteen Cornwall kitchen this summer! Introducing Mariana Chaves, born and raised in Rio de Janeiro and joining us from the Jamie Oliver family, straight out of Fifteen London.

Mariana was taught by her father to cook Brazilian and Portuguese cuisine at his restaurant, Baviera before adding to her learned skills with professional training at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in London. Once qualified she went on to work with Nuno Mendes within his collection of restaurants, Viajante, The Corner Room and The Loft Project, after which she joined the Jamie Oliver family as head pastry chef at Fifteen London.

Mariana joins us as Pastry Chef, bringing with her a passion for exciting new flavour combinations and stunning desserts.

Mariana loves foraging from her surroundings to create seasonal dishes which experiment with texture and flavour. She likes to find ways of combining herbs and vegetables and incorporating them into her desserts, such as beetroot sorbet, jellies and cakes. Mariana says: “My favourite desserts are anything with lemon, chocolate or herbs and vegetables, but I love to experiment with different combinations. I recently made a ganache with seaweed.”

One of the new desserts appearing on our menus now that that Mariana has arrived is this beautiful chocolate dish shown below. The dish consists of amedei dark chocolate mousse with whey caramel, topped with crystallised dark chocolate crumble, caramelised pecan nuts, shaved tonka bean, chocolate tuile and Italian cherries. It’s a delicious combination of rich chocolate, nutty flavours coming from the tonka bean and a fresh burst of fruity juices from the wonderful cherries.

Visit us soon to savour some of these delicious new desserts and other seasonal specials from the Fifteen Cornwall kitchen.
