Enjoy a fabulous three course lunch overlooking the beach – Italian style

Wild Cornwall

The weather may be a bit lively in January but the idea of wrapping up and hiking out across a windswept beach is still appealing – especially after the indoor excesses of the festive season.

And if you add a great value and delicious three course meal at a stylish and laid back South West restaurant that’s situated right on said beach, wouldn’t you be just a little tempted to jump in the car and head off?

Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall has a Wild Cornwall lunchtime menu running throughout the month – the latest in its series of seasonal offers and a great way to enjoy three fabulous courses for a set price of £24 per person.

As you’d expect from Fifteen, all the dishes are Italian inspired and use the best Cornish ingredients available to the chefs at that time of year. It’s also a menu designed to appeal to everyone in January – and no, we don’t mean diet fads and calorie cutting. Think instead of dishes like pappa al pomodoro, a heart-warming Tuscan tomato and bread soup; or fillet of hake with crushed herby potatoes, winter greens and aioli. Then how about pinolata della nonna, which translates as grandma’s pine nut and custard tart for dessert?

Eating here also means that all profits go back to the restaurant’s charity, Cornwall Food Foundation, which runs the award winning Fifteen Cornwall Apprentice Programme. It’s feel-good food all round.

The Wild Cornwall offer is available six days a week (Monday to Saturday) from January 4 to February 12, excluding January 11-22 when the restaurant is closed.
