BEN’S CORNISH KITCHEN
Located a 15 minute drive from Praa sands, Ben’s Cornish Kitchen is a creative but classy bistro-style restaurant on the main street in Marazion. Sourcing local meat and fish Ben serves up interesting interpretations of classic dishes. As Jay Raynor observes for The Guardian:
‘It takes me a moment to work out that a salad of a whipped gorgonzola mousse with salted caramel walnuts, spherified beads of apple and gin, pickled grapes and celery is a deconstructed Waldorf. This, alongside the occasional outbreak of slates as serving plates, is about as cutting edge as Ben’s gets. But it works. The pleasing old-shoe whiff of the cheese plays catch-up with the sweet-salt of the nuts and the sour of the grapes. It’s a Waldorf in tottering Louboutins’.
This restaurant will take you on a culinary exploration that will leave you both satisfied and excited.
