Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant near Newquay, Cornwall celebrates it’s fifth birthday on Wednesday 18th May. This pioneering social enterprise on the north coast at Watergate Bay is throwing open its doors for a night of food and fun and the general public is invited to come and party. As always, the evening will showcase the very best local food, prepared by the restaurant’s expert and apprentice chefs.

There will be a celebratory drink served on arrival, and the team will be cooking up a very special five-course birthday menu, yet to be revealed, but the kind of dishes you can expect will be:
– Char grilled St Enodoc asparagus wrapped in smoky speck with Clarence court duck egg and Newlina’s wild rocket
– The lightest potato gnocchi ‘primavera’ with peas, broad beans, artichokes asparagus and mascarpone topped with Buttervilla’s pea shoots
– Roast aged Angus beef fillet wrapped in Deli Farm coppa, creamy borlotti beans, Newlina’s Russian kale and salsa di rafano

After the main course, choose from dishes such as Amedei chocolate tasting plate or a selection of English and Cornish cheeses, topped off with a cup of locally roasted Origin coffee. To top it all off, the birthday feast will be followed by a disco by DJ Joe Fabian so you can dance into the night.

In its short lifetime, Fifteen Cornwall has fed over 400,000 diners and more than 100 disadvantaged young people have trained as apprentice chefs. The restaurant is dedicated to investing 100% of its profits back into the training of around twenty apprentice chefs each year. At the end of an intensive 16-month training period, these young people are equipped to become professional chefs and empowered to transform their lives. The programme is as much about developing self-esteem, confidence and discipline as it is about culinary skills.
