Porthminster Beach Café has announced that it will be hosting a Festival Dinner as part of the St Ives Food and Drink Festival this May – with dishes by Mitch Tonks, Jack Stein, Jose Pizarro, Gizzi Erskine and Sophie Michell.

The beach-side restaurant will be the setting for a culinary tour-de-force, as five of the country’s top chefs get creative with Cornwall’s unrivalled local produce.

The St Ives Food and Drink Festival runs over the weekend of 13th and 14th May; the annual event sees big-name chefs and award-winning producers descend on the sands of Porthminster Beach – a unique setting for one of the UK’s most spectacular food festivals.

Porthminster Beach Café is a key festival partner, helping to facilitate the event each year.

The dinner will take place on Saturday 13th May; the five-course menu, which will shortly be released, is priced at £60 per person and booking is exclusively via email (pminster@btconnect.com) on a first-come-first-served basis.

Michael Smith, Executive Chef at Porthminster Beach Café, commented: “With so much culinary talent arriving on our doorstep, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to bring some of the chefs together to devise a menu which celebrates the bounty of St Ives Bay. My team is looking forward to working with Mitch, Jack, Jose, Gizzi and Sophie to deliver a truly memorable experience for our guests.”

Porthminster Beach Café, which enjoys commanding views over the beach and bay, has a reputation for serving the freshest local seafood alongside garden-grown produce and ingredients foraged from its coastal surroundings.

A percentage of the profits from the dinner will be donated to Surfers Against Sewage, to help preserve the beauty of Porthminster Beach and others in Cornwall.
