To put it simply, Emily is passionate about food.
She creates dishes that follow the seasons, gathering the finest ingredients and combining them simply and instinctively. It is in her kitchen where she feels most at home.
She loves nothing more than delighting others through food, bringing friends and family together around a table. Emily has 3 children – Oscar, Finn and Evie who constantly amaze and inspire her.
Emily trained in France and it is her knowledge of the classic techniques that form the backbone to her skills. In 2000 she moved to Cornwall where she then successfully ran the Harbour Restaurant in Port Isaac for more than 6 years.
In 2013, she was named Best Chef South West by Food Magazine and was nominated as a Local Food Hero. In 2014 Emily took over the eponymous St Tudy Inn and was recently awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand.
She said the core of her cooking is fresh, ripe and seasonal ingredients and said the living in Cornwall has given her access to wonderful producers.
Emily admits she gets excited about what produce is available to her and believes her success is down to supporting fishmongers, greengrocers, butchers and farmers markets.
