This February, the Idle Rock’s Head Chef Guy Owen takes inspiration from a commonly used, highly nutritious, but often underrated vegetable- the humble cabbage.
We have four vegetarian dishes a day on our à la carte menu, one of which is entirely dedicated to The Lost Gardens of Heligan and their current crop and is simply called, ‘Heligan’s Garden.’ On request, you can also have the tasting menu, based solely on vegetables.
With recent scientific research indicating that five portions of fruit and veg a day are good for you, but ten is even better and could even prevent up to 7.8 million premature deaths worldwide every year; the need to showcase the mighty vegetable is even more significant than before.
“Our focus on vegetarian food is to show the versatility and beauty of nature, working with Heligan Gardens gives us direct access to vegetables at their best. Not only are we showing how delicious vegetarian food can be, but also working hard on sustainability within Cornwall,” comments Guy.
On the menu at The Idle Rocks this month is, barbequed January King, stuffed with feta. Celeriac, Cavolo Nero, raw pear and pickled linseed.
