EPISODE 10 | JUST ADD BEER THE PODCAST

2 Michelin Star Chef, James Knappett, has worked in some of the best restaurants in the world. He shares his influences, passion for cooking and some of his simple pleasures in life, which includes a pickled egg and packet of crisps. 

Serving meticulously sourced ingredients in an exclusive dining venue in London, James Knappett, has long been an ambassador of Cornish produce and the Cornish lifestyle. James’ early cheffing days were spent alongside Rick Stein at The Seafood Restaurant, and the pair are close friends with John Walton at Number 6. After a visit to Sharp’s Secret Bar at the Padstow Christmas Festival, they quickly realised that beers can have same complexity as fine wines and can be perfectly matched with dishes in a Michelin Star restaurant such as his.
