It was wonderful to kick off my first Coastal Cuisine film with a visit to Mersea Island in Essex. I was lucky to arrive just as the ancient road which connects the island to the mainland flooded, cutting the island off.
Welcome to Phil's journey around Britain. Join Phil as he discovers the hidden delights of some of the best seafood in the world.
Conwy - Mussels
The amazing thing about Conwy mussels is just how large they are- so often, the mussels found in restaurants and in supermarkets are tiny.
Oban - Langoustines
The West Coast of Scotland is undoubtedly one of the most astoundingly beautiful places I’ve ever been- so much so, that it was impossible to travel around without stopping every ten minutes just to take in the view!
Padstow - Lobster
Cornwall automatically conjures images of sunshine, seafood restaurants, and sandy beaches – and Padstow is the jewel in the crown of this county’s north coast, as well as being one of the UK’s best places to experience British coastal cuisine.
Jersey - Sustainable Fish
With some of the most breathtakingly beautiful coastline I’ve ever seen, Jersey (Jersey.com) was a terrific place to finish my Coastal Cuisine series.
Aberdeenshire - Haddock
Stonehaven, where Haddock was so popular customers were queuing out of the door. Calum explained that these days, customers were concerned about tracing their fish to a sustainable source, and that’s why it was so important for Calum.
