Ben Tunnicliffe Cooks Fish At Scarlet!
We are excited to announce that we have joined forces with renowned chef and seafood specialist Ben Tunnicliffe to host a fish supper here at Scarlet Wines this February. On Friday 23rd, Ben will cook a four-course feast, featuring fish landed at Newlyn alongside other seasonal ingredients. Meanwhile Jon will carefully pair each dish with the perfect wine from his hand-picked portfolio of over 300 wines. Ben Tunnicliffe is a classically-trained chef and a leading figure in Cornwall’s buoyant food scene; his restaurants, The Tolcarne Inn and Ben Tunnicliffe Sennen Cove, have become known as some of the best places to enjoy fresh Cornish seafood. Ben said: “I can’t wait to cook some of my signature fish dishes at this event, and I’m looking forward to seeing what Jon decides to pair them with. We’ve discussed the menu and I know he is already brimming with ideas – our guests are in for a treat!” Jon is a wine aficionado with a passion for searching out authenticity, originality and value; it is thanks to his knowledge of wine from all over the world that our shelves are packed with eclectic bottles bearing idiosyncratic descriptions. Jon said: “I love Ben’s style of cooking – he doesn’t over-complicate his dishes but lets the quality of the raw ingredients shine through.” He added: “Obviously I’ll be choosing wines to subtly match and enhance the flavours and textures of Ben’s dishes, but I’m also hoping to surprise our guests with some original ideas when it comes to regions and grape varieties.” The four-course meal is £40 per person including matching wines; spaces are limited and can be booked by calling our team on 01736 753696.
