Cornish Mussels with Cider

Another dish making the most of Cornish seafood, this subtle omelette is designed to allow the flavour of the white and brown crab meat to take centre stage.
Cornish Bouillabaisse with Mash
Rick has been making his Cornish bouillabaisse for years, using fruits of the Cornish sea to create a rich, hearty bowl of comfort served with a side of creamy mash.
Pork Chops with Savoy Cabbage and Sloes
Inspired by the deeply flavourful free-range meat from a farm Rick visited in Cornwall, these tender pork chops are served with sautéed cabbage and poached sloes. Autumn on a plate.
Butterflied BBQ Lamb with Lemon, Garlic, Rosemary and Thyme
Rick filmed his Cornwall TV series at the height of the pandemic, so plenty of the recipes in the series were cooked outside. This barbecued lamb is a shining example of the al fresco recipes you’ll find both in the series and the book.
Rick gives briam, a Greek dish of roasted vegetables in a tomato sauce, a Cornish slant with locally-grown veg.
If you tuned into Rick’s Cornish TV series, you will have seen him making this apple Charlotte in an orchard at Tresillian House, near Newquay. One of the most popular recipes from the series and handed down to Rick from his mother, it features two different varieties of apple encased in a bread-based pudding and served with custard.
Vodka Lemon Drizzle Pancakes with Blackberry Compote
A celebration of autumn blackberries, Rick’s pancakes are served with a compote spiked with vodka, inspired by a distillery in St Austell he visited for his TV series.
