Want to know when we're stocked up?

This collaborative box has quickly become one of our most popular products, so we thought why not make it even better with the addition of some fabulous ale to enjoy whilst cooking!

We truly believe that Cornish Lobster is the finest you can buy, so we always had the ‘Surf’ part covered. However, we were understandably nervous about compromising the excellence of the ‘Surf’ with inferior ‘Turf’. When we finally found it, the answer had actually been right under our noses all along, tucked away in a lush green valley on the South Cornish Coast - Traditional Cornish farmer and butcher, James Kittow, rearing his own small herd of Pedigree Red Ruby beef cattle and a herd of Pedigree Dexter cattle on a farm started by his great great grandfather – Prime Cornish 21 day aged Beef of the highest quality and superb provenance.

James is an award-winning butcher and grazier, local food hero, Cornish Farmer of the Year 2019 and producer of the finest sausages west of the Tamar. When we suggested a Surf ‘n’ Turf partnership he was delighted to be part of it and suggested the 6oz rib-eye as bursting with flavour and just the right size. James represents the 5th generation of this famous Cornish family butchers & graziers, and lives, with his wife and children on the farm at Kilhallon, originally established by the Kittow family in 1880, where he grazes his prize pedigree herd of Red Rubies. The farm boasts a fully licenced, export approved butchery, which is also home to Mr. Kittow’s Famous Sausage Co.

Our chefs contributed a classic compound butter named after the Café de Paris restaurant, in Geneva, where it was first popularised as an accompaniment to steaks. Made up of a bewildering list of herbs spices and condiments whipped into Cornish butter, our chefs opined that it would go superbly with both the lobster and the steak. How right they were! The secret, apparently, is enjoying the ‘power bite’ – a mouthful of steak AND lobster AND melted butter, chewed boldly together. Talk about your sensory overload, this could be the ultimate titillating tastebud tango!

To take this box to another level, we have added a cracking couple of beers, courtesy of another brilliant Cornish supplier, the Padstow Brewing Company. Lobster T'ale is a naturally cloudy and extremely light and refreshing style of wheat beer, designed especially for pairing with seafood. It goes really well with salmon, oysters, scallops, mussels, clams, crab and of course...lobster! It was developed with the National Lobster Hatchery in mind, an amazing charity based in Padstow. 10p from each can will be donated to help conserve vulnerable lobster populations. We also support the charity directly with donations from Fish for Thought. Protecting our Cornish lobster populations contributes to safeguarding the future of our seafood industry and the many livelihoods and coastal communities it supports here in Cornwall.

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.
