Rick Stein’s SeaFood Restaurant

An extremely special and memorable restaurant we visited was located in Padstow, Cornwall.

The entire trip was focused on this particular meal as I am such a fan of the owner, tv chef Rick Stein who’s speciality is the wonderful delight of seafood.


The meal was nothing short of incredible, I chose a whole Dover soul, the Rolls Royce of the sea, it was filleted at the table for me, served with a simple parsley butter, padrone peppers and baby new potatoes. The fish was cooked to absolute perfection, it fell apart as it entered my mouth and can honestly say the best fish dish i have ever sampled. It took balls not to order the obvious Lobster or the magnificent Fruits de mer, fruits of the sea to you and me.

I would say to any fan of shellfish and seafood to make this a future must visit, a special occasion never to be forgotten. I was also told by my fiancee who’s a massive fan of fish and chips that it was the best cod and chips that had ever touched her lips, cooked the old fashioned way when people worked off their dinner with hard graft, cooked in beef dripping, the unbeatable.

I was diagnosed with terminal HCC Liver Cancer October 2012 since then i have found much more time to experiment in the kitchen and develop my knowledge. Making cookery my number one release and hobby. On a lighter note, I have been in love with food since when I couldn't possibly remember, the story of me in my youth asking Father Christmas for cucumber sandwiches doesn't surprise anyone in the slightest. I enjoy cooking, eating out, entertaining, putting smiles on peoples faces when they take their first mouthful of my dish/force feeding them and talking about food, generally basing life around the next meal. I tend to get on tremendously well immediately with anyone who has a passion for food and life in general. In my blog i will add new tried and tested restaurants, recipes and much more. Aimed at anyone even if they have hardly ever picked up a skillet. I believe great things can be achieved using minimal ingredients, hence why my favourite food to cook and eat is Italian. Hoping to meet other food enthusiast bloggers and share my recipes with fellow foodies. Every little helps when it comes to cooking and choosing between a vast amount of eateries. Let's avoid the mediocre ones and promote the unpretentious hidden gems where the true greatness lies. I hope you find this page useful and any feedback would be fantastic. Enjoy!

    1. It was excellent lived up to every expectation of mine. You were certainly missed but the food spoke a thousand words in your absence so not to worry, maybe one day we can share the same philosophies and outlooks on food and life. Stay cool.
