Bringing a few more sacrificial lambs from the home collection his morning. Feel bad dropping them off to a short hard life of constant wear, finger prints and being marinaded in spilt orange wine. We've got Mingus, speed glue and shinki and some Congolese psychedelic rumba.

21 . Aug . 17

Stir fried cockles with fragrant lemongrass tops which are grown in Cornwall for us by @goodearthgrowers . We're open 1pm - 8pm straight through today and we have some more fantastic red mullet on the menu. Thanks to @insta_alb for the photograph

17 . Aug . 17

Jungle Curry of guinea fowl from Phetchaburi. This dish originates from an old trading city south west of Bangkok. First you get the aroma from kaffir lime, then pungency of fermented shrimp paste and finally the heat from the birds eye chilli. The guinea fowl are slow over charcoal before being fried with the curry paste and the each portion of curry is then built and seasoned in the woks over a low heat Tao barbecue.

15 . Aug . 17

Some fantastic plaice being grilled whole this evening. Always stunning fish from @kernowsashimi

12 . Aug . 17

A few more Cornish native lobsters with curried egg on for lunch today

11 . Aug . 17

And here's the rest of today's lunch menu. My approach would be spiny lobster and red mullet with a glass of Grosset Polish Hill, then the guinea fowl curry with shobbrook Clariot and some stir fried Cornish greens. (And I'd probably arrive at 2.15 so I didn't have to wait).

10 . Aug . 17

... and when the mullet are gone we'll grill these small John Dory and serve with a green chilli dipping sauce.

9 . Aug . 17

Stiff striped mullet, stuffed with a aromatic and herbal paste made with their roe and slow grilled on this evening until we run out...

9 . Aug . 17

The lowly grey mullet, thanks to @kernowsashimi these are sparkling fresh. They have a slightly muddy flavour which means they don't make the grade in a lot of European places but we love to eat them the way Thais prize freshwater catfish and perch for their earthy flavours alongside bitter herbs and very spicy green chillies.

8 . Aug . 17

Sour Turmeric Curry of Cod Cheeks, from Northern Thailand. The fresh Green Lemongrass from @goodearthgrowers in Cornwall is infused into the curry through simmering, giving it a bright citrus aroma.

5 month Tamworths at Fred Price's beautiful farm in Somerset. Really interesting progressive farming using as much of the mixed arable land he has to keep them on a high protein natural outdoor diet as long as possible.

22 . May . 17

Salt crust grilled pollock, stuffed with lemongrass and galangal from @kernowsashimi on for lunch today.

22 . May . 17

Slow grilling perfect striped mullet from @hendersonseafood . The cavity is stuffed with a fragrant, turmeric curry paste. Suck out the head meat like a prawn, it's the best bit. Never happier than when gently grilling extremely fresh native fish.

Stir Fried Aged Duck. We've started taking Peking Aylesbury cross ducks from warrens farmers. They're hung for 3/4 weeks much longer than normal for a deep flavour. Then we stir fry them with a southern Thai dry chilli galangal and fermented shrimp paste alongside betel leaves and snake beans.

10 . May . 17

These fresh shiitake mushrooms are grown for us by @goodearthgrowers in Cornwall. They place spores inside decaying tree logs and then harvest them which is a weird thing to see. But very fresh mushrooms have a remarkably lighter, brighter flavour than older ones.

10 . May . 17

Slow grilled Striped Red Mullet stuffed with a fragrant curry paste over charcoal. We suggest eating the flesh and roe then suck the head meat like a prawn. These are on this evening, priced by weight. They were in the sea this time yesterday.

New dish today. Five Spice Duck & White Soy Claypot Noodles. Based on a yarowat road Thai x Chinese hybrid@lukiefarrell took us too last time we were in Bangkok. We simmer a five spice broth with all the good parts of the ducks innards along a wonderful aged white soy, so you have a fragrant gravy. Then roast in the claypot with greens for sweetness. We then use a very fine Japanese brown vinegar and ginger for fragrance. Been trailing it for a while now but finally got it right for this weekend.

Our Aged Lamb & Cumin Skewer. High definition centre fold money shot by @allthingsmeaty

17 . Mar . 17

An Isaan style grilled beef nam tok. We get warrens farmers to select chuck eye from their native breeds for us then we heavily age it. The result is deeply flavourful beef with enough texture to work in a nam dtok along side the rural paddy field flavours of fermented freshwater fish, little mouse shit chillies and bitter herbs. We make ours with a mix of lime and lemon juice, as we noticed the little key likes they use in eastern Thailand kinda taste like lemons. Thanks to @themeatcheat for the action shot.

This is what a month or so worth of Tamworth pigs for Kiln looks like at warrens in Cornwall. These are bred and finished to our spec which means we can start the best quality best animals. Then our in house butcher makes sure we're using every bit of every animal, so we're able to pass that value on to the people who come an eat with us.

5 . Feb . 17

Pla Thu - Horse Mackerel, a fish used widely in traditional Thai cuisine. On this evening, served with our jungle curry.

1 . Feb . 17

And a mind blowing meal of catfish Laap, maeng daa nam prik, fish roasted in banana leaf with lemongrass and chilli and dancing shrimp. Brilliant end to a day in Isaan with @fah_skybang lovely family

28 . Jan . 17

And this is the catch: dancing shrimp for laap salads, catfish for grilling, smaller perch like fish for pla raa (a freshwater type of fish sauce) and mud crabs also to be fermented and pounded through salads. Astonishing how all these characteristic flavours of Isaan cooking are derived from the microcosm of life which surrounds a muddy pond. Awesome to have @fah_skybang showing us how they make all work, @lukiefarrell 's teachings on Thai plants, @benjaminmcmahon snapping pics and now our sous chef @ianwoody85 is gonna cook.

Awesome review in @telegraph on Sunday written by Keith Miller. "It's absolutely coherent and true to itself. Dishes are two or three flavours, European tastes (notably lashings of lemon balm) work perfectly alongside the sour-sweet-salty-spicy flavours of south-east asia"

Outrageously perfect red mullet, in this morning. They can be a little prawny when not super fresh, but these are still in rigour and the flavour is beautiful. To be severed with a light Turmeric curry this evening. We also have equally exciting brill and wild bass to be served steamed with soy and kaffir.

Beautiful, firm, bright and perfect Mackerel in yesterday morning from Cornwall. We served these as a Khua Kling a southern Thai type of dry red curry, cooked in our charcoal woks, with Chinese chive, fresh kaffir and three types of chilli. Really simple food, really beautiful fresh ingredients to cook with.

Cockles & Fermented Shrimp with lemongrass grown by Sean O'neil for us on Keveral Farm, Cornwall. The lemongrass is really fragrant when this fresh, we're really enjoying practicing dishes with Sean's produce this week.

Aged Lamb & Cumin Skewers. Thanks to the special work the guys at Warrens Farmers in Cornwall do, we can take whole Hogget which has been heavily fattened and then can be aged for 5 weeks or more. The extra fat cover protects the flesh during aging and keeps the texture soft on deeper flavour meat. There's nothing else like aged lamb fat.
