Treviskers becomes The Chefs Larder


A popular café just outside Padstow has transformed into a food shop.

Treviskers at Treviskers Garden Centre has been re-named as The Chefs Larder, with the aim of helping out the surrounding area with fresh produce.

Head chef Henk de Villiers Ferreira launched the original café in 2017 where he regularly held guest chef dinners with the likes of Alan Bird (formerly The Ivy, London) and Russel Brown (formerly Sienna, Dorset).

The Chefs Larder now sells home-made soups, sirloin, rib-eye and fillet steaks, cured bacon, pork sausages, lobsters, fish cakes and fish goujons alongside local eggs, flour, butter and milk. It is also selling fresh fish and chips as a takeaway service.

Henk de Villiers Ferreira said: “I turned Treviskers Kitchen into a food shop following the outbreak of the corona virus pandemic. Having had to furlough 20 of my staff I am now a greengrocer, shopkeeper, butcher and fish fryer!”

He hopes to continue with a version of the shop once the world returns to some sense of normality.
