A new pop-up restaurant is launching at Watergate Bay next week, at the former venue of Fifteen Cornwall.
The new temporary venture – Emily Scott Food – is being run by chef Emily Scott, who has built an impressive reputation heading the kitchen at St Tudy Inn, along with partner, Bordeaux winemaker Mark Hellyar.
She said: “My own story began with warm memories of a childhood in Provence with my grandfather, Papa, collecting strawberries from the fields to the hum of crickets in the hot sun.
“It then slowly winds its way through Cornish country lanes to its beautiful golden sandy beaches. I translate this experience through turning locally-sourced ingredients into delicious, rustic dishes that are so deceptively simple you can even recreate them at home. No faff, no fuss.
“Just beautiful seasonal food, people coming together round the table, and a summertime we’ll never forget – for all the right reasons.”
The restaurant will be open throughout the summer on Tuesdays to Saturdays, for lunch and supper.
After the summer, there are plans to transform the building into accommodation, which is expected to be ready for the 2021 season.
