for a novel, but affordable, idea for Christmas presents?
The Duchy Fish Quota Company may have the solution.
In a change from previous years, for this year's annual
calendar the DFQC has kept the naked fishermen under wraps
in order to concentrate on the fishermen's 'raison
d'être' - Fish. This year's calendar features
twelve dramatic new Cornish seafood recipes designed exclusively
for the calendar by some of the county's top chefs, all determined
to show off the variety and quality of Cornish fish and shellfish
available alongside their own ideas for contemporary and tasty
Chefs featured in the calendar include Gareth Eddy (Head
Chef at Pescadou Restaurant, Padstow) who produced a delicious
cassoulet recipe using pollack fillet and dynamic young Tom
Bradbury (The Brasserie, Watergate Bay) who created a scrumptious
recipe using the most famous of Cornish fish – the sardine.
"We wanted to try something different this year.
As more and more people are becoming better informed of the
quality and range of Cornish fish available, a seafood calendar
seemed like a fantastic way of showing what Cornish fish has
to offer," said Nathan de Rozarieux, DFQC director.
