is seriously delicious. It's inspiring.
In my previous post I blathered on about how hospitable they were towards @harrycornwall
and I. To the cynic they might say "well they are in hospitality, the key is in the title". This is very true. They have a business to run & guests are the business. Bipedal bags of skin and cash, hoovering up food, happiest if an extension of the arm brining beverage to mouth, is the main exertion. Yelping gleeful at the sight of bathrobe and slippers. Fumbling mini toiletries into suitcases like drunken scallywags groping feverishly at shiny doubloons. That's not how I felt at here. Greeted at the car by a 'fresh from an accountancy meeting' @tom_m_adams
during one of the sunniest days of the year (glamours life of a chef eh). And given a whistle stop tour of the farmhouse, while chatting to another guest, it felt more like a mates house than one of the top places to eat/stay in the country. I challenge the most hardened hospitality cynic not to feel enamoured by this place. This isn't a skill, it's a confidence in the environment he, @aprilbloomfield
& the rest of the team have created. The food of course, is nothing short of absolutely fucking delicious. We're talking food-meters, not miles. Delicate touches with classical techniques that will satisfy the most serious eater. All the while you can enjoy it wearing you favourite shorts and T-shirt. Because why the hell not? Oh and the gnocchi fritto with pork belly? I want to be buried in a cask full of them. Or indeed placed inside a giant one, a beautiful taste revelation. #delicious #foodlover #foodwriting #microblogging #photography #foodphotography #resturant #hotel #cornwall #coombsheadfarm #delicious
