Michael Smith, executive chef at Porthminster Beach Café, will be unveiling his publication – ‘Porthminster Beach Café – The Cookbook’ at a special party at the restaurant on May 17, to coincide with the start of the St Ives Food and Drink Festival.

He said: “I’ve wanted to produce this book for a while. The time feels right and I have the people around me to make it happen.

“I have included some of the most popular dishes enjoyed at Porthminster Beach Café, simplified so that they will be achievable for anyone interested in food – so the book should have a wide appeal.”


  1. Brilliant news, thoroughly enjoyed our ‘foraging day’ with ‘fat hen’ and michael. We have enjoyed many lunches at Porthminster, very interested to see the cook book.
