    Is he still cooking Cornish curries, bastardised from the original recipes?

    He’s the wine critic, no?

    Correct – he’s not the wine critic.

    I like Rick Steen and love Indian food but the combination doesn’t work for me. There are some top Indian chefs in the UK with Michelin starred restaurants, why not one of them?

    I look at the local Indian doing the cooking not the celebrity … 😆

    Happily, TVs can be turned off.

    I really like his programmes actually. He’s clearly passionate about the food and the style of cooking and really seeks out some of the most authentic kitchens that are knocking out superb grub using nothing but fresh ingredients. His shows are amongst the few that really captivate me and really make me wish I were there with a spoon to try them. Plus I like the way the program shows him ‘warts and all’ even when he’s being slightly petulant or grumpy. It’s refreshing to see a program that isn’t over staged or produced to death. I believe he works with the same guy that used to try and keep Floyd in check and this series reminds me of some of the old Keith Floyd series.

    +1 totally agree with what luffy105 said.

    I’m Indian and its good to see some real authentic recipes on TV. It’s also nice to learn a bit more about the different styles of cooking from all over India.

    I kinda think its a shame that we can’t have programmes about regional cooking [ or any other aspect of other cultures ] without a Jamie or Rick or a Nigella cooking them their own dishes and getting all the plaudits.I know its just telly and yes I do turn it off, but to be its just naff.

    Can’t stand the fella – not that he’ll lose any sleep over it I’m sure.

    He’s helped to ruin Padstow, his pub is a rip-off (£8.50 for a large glass of wine).

    good on you theblackmount

    turning a statement into a slightly patronizing question by putting ‘no?’ at the end of it really grinds my gears, its up there with pictures of cats for ruining the internet

    And the Deli, Rick’s Fish & Chip Shop, the cafe, the gift shop, 3 different restaurant’s.

    The Cornish Arms is in St.Merryn, couple of miles outside Padstow, £8.50 for a glass of wine is a rip-off IMO.

    I like his programmes though I always suspect that in real life, he may well be a bit of a grumpy git. Not really sure why though.

    Only a rip off if you’re paying for it. If it pisses you off, don’t go. There’s lots of restaurants that I think are shite, I just don’t go to them, you should try it!.

    It’s hardly a rip off if youv’e got some choice in the matter!

    How dare he be a successful businessman, bringing trade and employment to the area.

    There are even other restaurants in Padstow: this one is terrific.

    http://www.number6inpadstow.co.uk/Paul Ainsworth’s place is great and good value to boot. Across the estuary in Rock, Nathan Outlaw is well worth a visit…knocks The Seafood Restaurant for six. Fancy something a bit more cheap ‘n’ cheerful, Margot’s bistro (back in Padstow now), though you’ll probably need to book in advance.

    This is a thread about Padstow eateries, right?

    It seemed to be more about slagging off someone who is good at what he does.

    I really liked the Seafood Restaurant actually, but you got the impression that the clientele were there because they wanted to be seen, rather than because they really enjoyed the food.

    They the celebrity chefs just want others’ secret recipe … 😆

    I bet if you ask him (the celebrity) personally he/they will tell you to sort off.

    I like his programme so long as the camera is focusing on the local and not the celebrity.

    Aye, that Paul Ainsworth place is cracking value not sure if its less so with a Michelin star. Had that trip to the fairground for dessert last we visited, simply awesome. His Italian restaurant was really good value too. The stein chipper was OK but was surprised to see all the chips were prepared frozen so was left feeling a bit meh. Stein does dominate ‘Padstein’ however if it means an otherwise (once) small fishing community can benefit from all the foodies flocking there it had to be a good thing.
