Option G - Oysters Rockefeller followed by Dover Sole Meunière & New Season Asparagus

From £55.00 Per Meal for Two

For your starter, a delicious hot oyster dish that’s so rich and decadent it was named after the richest man in America at the time of its invention! This is our own take, which is a white wine velouté sauce with English mustard and parmesan, finished with chopped spinach and parsley, topped with a parsley parmesan crumb. All made in small batches by our Chefs here in Cornwall. Just glorious.

The oysters will be fresh and live, so make sure you’ve got an oyster knife for shucking. Once open and shucked, all you have to do is add the ready-made Rockefeller sauce and top with the parmesan crumb before popping in the oven to create a delicious starter for 2 people.

The Main Course brings together the spring seas and fields of Cornwall on one uplifting plate. We’ve taken our sustainably fished and, to be frank, stunning Cornish Dover Sole and paired it with a nutty, zesty Meuniere sauce (that’s Buerre Noisette with lemon and parsley for the unfamiliar) that gently brings out the savoury, satisfying flavours of this firm, velvety fish.

The mild, moist climate of Cornwall also means that we always lead the field when it comes to early season crops. First up is our iconic asparagus, grown on Tregassow Farm on the south coast of the county. The family have been growing asparagus here for years and are true experts in farming the green spears that slowly grow in our climate, allowing a deeper flavour to develop than imported alternatives. The season is short though, so make sure you make the most of it! Cornwall is also usually the first county in the UK to produce a new season potato crop. These nutty, dense new potatoes, grown on Colwith Farm a mere 6 miles away from our premises, have a fresh flavour and waxy texture that makes them all the more savoury, and the perfect partner to our Dover Sole and buttery, lemony sauce.

Recipes & Cooking

Dover Sole Meunière Method:

Defrost the Dover Sole.
Lightly dust the Dover Sole with seasoned flour (plain flour, salt and pepper) and shake off the excess.
Preheat a large non-stick pan over a medium-high heat, add enough sunflower oil to thinly cover the base of the pan. Add the Dover Sole carefully and shallow fry for 2 minutes until golden in colour. Reduce heat if necessary, to avoid burning the fish.
Flip over the Dover Sole and continue to cook the other side for a further minute.
Add the Meunière Butter to the pan and cook for a further 2 minutes. The butter will melt and start to foam. Baste the Sole with the foaming butter.
Remove from the pan and onto a plate, pour over some of the butter and serve with Cornish new potatoes and Tregassow Farm asparagus.

Freshness of the Sea

Hi Paul & Team Thank you all so much for the Valentines Hamper Special! It arrived: on time, in perfect condition and filled the kitchen with the freshness of the sea! We enjoyed it all but especially the beautiful impressive lobster - most flavoursome we've ever eaten this side of the Tamar! A real delicious treat and terrific surprise for my husband Alan! All the best to you and hope these storms abate soon and are not causing you too much havoc! Saw pictures of Fore Street, Fowey flooded!

Had two deliveries from FFT both perfect keep up the good work ..Its just not the quality of your fish and shellfish its also the fantastic delivery service from DPD with there 1 hour time slot second to none - great combination

Xmas Buffet Box

Just to say a big thank you to you and the team for the bumper Xmas buffet box, which arrived on time (as always) this morning. Oysters on the menu tonight! The rest has been put to the back of the fridge or frozen for a festive gathering we’re planning with close friends and neighbours on the 28th December. Lucky them, lucky us! Love the tea-towel, too!
