A new private catering service has been launched by Emily Scott, chef and owner of The Harbour Restaurant in Port Isaac, North Cornwall.
The Harbour Kitchen offers bespoke outside catering for weddings, canapé parties and other private functions.
For those feeling a little more indulgent, The Harbour Kitchen also offer a private chef to cater for in-house dinner parties or home-cooked delivery meals from the kitchen of The Harbour Restaurant.
The new venture is in part thanks to the arrival of sous chef Megan Brigstocke, who joins the team at the celebrated Cornish restaurant, which is located in a beautiful 15th century building on the water’s edge.
Emily says: “It is great to have Megan on board. She has cooked all over the world which has given her fantastic knowledge and skills.
“Megan’s arrival gives us the capacity to diversify and to offer these additional services. We will be bringing the same quality and flavours that you can find at The Harbour to the rest of Cornwall, catering for weddings, private dinner parties, special occasions and corporate functions.”
Megan, originally from Hampshire, has trained at the Tante Marie School of Cookery and has always loved Cornwall since first visiting as a child.
Megan said: “Getting the opportunity to move to Cornwall has been brilliant. I love cooking with all the fresh local ingredients and meeting Emily has been such an inspiration. I am feeling just as passionate about cooking now as I did when I first started.”
Megan joins patisserie chef Bianca Weyergrafin The Harbour’s all-girl kitchen. Bianca used to work in education and has been trained from scratch by Emily over the last year in the art of puddings and desserts.
The inspiration behind the new venture comes from Emily’s past experience in private catering, providing food for events such as at Windsor Castle and weddings.
Emily creates menus that are individually crafted to reflect the occasion, the season and the ingredients available.
The Harbour Kitchen’s delivery meals can be ordered via the website and are designed to be reheated when ever you need them.
