We were already huge fans of Cornwall’s Michelin-Star-waving chef Nathan Outlaw, and now he’s backing sustainable fishing along with Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen at Watergate Bay and a whole host of other businesses in the South West – hurray!
The seafood extraordinaire is the latest celebrity chef to join the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide, which Cornwall Wildlife Trust and the Cornish fishing industry worked together to create to help fish consumers choose the most sustainable fish of the season.
So what's it all about? The Cornwall Good Seafood Guide makes it easy for those of us who love our seafood to find out what’s in season, how its caught and what to choose if we want to do our bit for sustainable fishing. It even includes handy recipes to help us impress the family with something a little bit different now and then.
There’s a directory of places to point us in the right direction when it comes to buying our fish, and the ‘meet the fishermen’ videos mean we can see just how much work going into putting that seafood on our plates all year round.
Nathan Outlaw’s restaurants have joined the many that have put their name to the project to support the cause and make it easier for seafood consumers to make informed choices, and all three of his Cornwall restaurants serve seafood sourced by local fishermen who work closely with the restaurant.
