Curried Lobster Soup and Lobster Thermidor with Skinny Fries

From £90.00 Per Meal for Two

Lobster as you’ve never known it. The sweetness of our Cornish pot-caught lobster meat balances beautifully with artfully blended rich and subtle Madras spice, and served with a chunky tomato, roasted pepper, coriander leaf and lobster oil dressing for a bit of bite and freshness.

To follow, an FFT classic! Our mouthwatering Lobster Thermidor served with crispy Skinny Cornish Fries and a green salad. Continuing a commitment to champion local farmers and fantastic local produce, we did not have to look very far to find some wonderful Cornish spuds from which to create our skinny fries - about 6 miles to be precise. The Dustow family have been growing award-winning potatoes at Colwith farm for five generations, recently garnering the prestigious British Farming Family Business of the year in 2019. They also boast Cornwall's only plough-to-Bottle distillery on the farm, producing an varied range of Vodka's and Gins. When we asked them for a few sacks of their finest spuds, they kindly even offered to peel and chip them for us - what a fabulous service. We recommend cooking the fries in the oven, but if you have a deep fat fryer why not go for it? After all, nothing tastes like a perfectly fried crispy chip.

Wine & Seafood Pairing with Fiona Beckett
We’ve also teamed up with food and wine pairing expert and journalist Fiona Beckett, who has created three extra special wine pairings to complement our Easter Seafood Collection. Each main course has been given its perfect partner in wine, selected to enhance the beautiful flavours of the dish and elevate the whole dining event. Add one to your order and dive into Fiona’s wonderfully accessible tasting notes (no pretension here) for an especially enjoyable and enlightening seafood experience.

“Finding the best wine to go with a dish is like finding the perfect side. Just think of those occasions on holiday when you've enjoyed a plate of seafood with the local wine and how those occasions have stuck in your memory. It just raises the whole eating experience to another level.”

The perfect wine for this exceptional lobster dish is Domaine Gérard Thomas Saint-Aubin 2016 – why not add a bottle to your order? Available on our Easter Collection page, where you can also read Fiona’s tasting notes.

Sustainability & Provenance

We are really proud of the provenance and quality of our Cornish lobster. We have close relationships with a small number of fishermen and many of them land directly to us. Not only that we provide them with bait for their pots in the form of our fish frames and waste. This is a real win win as it eliminates the need for us to dispose of our waste and provides our fishermen with free bait. Read more

The Best Lobsters

As ever, everything arrived OK thanks and we’ve just eaten the lobsters (a Valentine’s treat for my wife – oh all right, for me too!). The substitution of Turbot in place of the Brill I ordered, which was unavailable, was fine and much appreciated. Thanks for that. Finally, as I’ve said before, your new packaging is a huge improvement and makes the whole process much easier at the receiving end. I keep mentioning FFT to family and friends so I hope you get some more sales from them.

Our perfect meal

Thank you very much for the really wonderful lobsters that I found outside my door on Saturday morning.  They were delicious and a great hit with my guests in the evening!  I have never seen such big claws! We had some fun getting the hammer out to break into them.... Thank you for a perfect meal with special friends and the chance to celebrate in great, messy, style! Thank you for the freshness of the lobsters and for the very efficient delivery just on the day they were needed! Congratulations on a very good job, well delivered and well done.

Wedding Anniversary Celebrations!

just thought I'd drop you a quick email to let you know our order arrived on Saturday morning. I opened the box and it smelled like Cornwall, the sea. The mussels were superb in the mariniere sauce and the lobster thermidor was fantastic! We were treating ourselves as it is our 26th wedding anniversary tomorrow and to be honest, we prefer to buy the very best ingredients and cook ourselves than go to a restaurant and be disappointed. We were delighted with the quality of the fish, as always.
