Ben's Cornish Kitchen

West End, Marazion, PENZANCE, TR17 0EL

2 rosettes

Seagulls wheel about the thriving little village of Marazion, just outside Penzance, in a coastal scene that may strike a chord with followers of Doc Martin. Behind its shop front fa?ade, the Kitchen extends over two wooded floors furnished with plain tables and raffia chairs, with some local artworks for sale. Contemporary-styled cooking with a classical background features dishes that are perfectly married constructs, with prime ingredients receiving due prominence. In starters, that could mean a dual role for cured and crisp-fried beef with watercress, pungent horseradish and a sourdough cro?ton, or a twice-baked cheese souffl? with soused pear and spiced pecans. Then mains bring on milky-textured cod with crushed root veg, mussels and spinach, or intensely flavoured braised lamb shoulder with frankly stunning pearl barley risotto and crunchy broccoli in salsa verde. Tropical elements add up to an irresistible dessert of coconut pannacotta with dried pineapple, lime-macerated mango, spiced caramel and mint sugar. Cheeses are a sound Anglo-French selection that comes with home-made biscuits and damson jelly. Oh, and don't miss the excellent breads.
