After a twenty year career spent working with culinary luminaries such as Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons and Bill Granger at his eponymous Sydney restaurant, Nigel has brought his well-honed skills and food flair to the beautiful Cornish setting of Carlyon Bay, Cornwall.
His commitment to using the freshest ingredients in their most flavoursome combinations shows in everything he cooks. Dedicated to creating menus that appeal to all ages and appetites, they are united in being generous, fresh and unfussy.
Edie's is a true family venture, Nigel is joined by his wife Kelly. Bringing her warm, welcoming nature and a wealth of hospitality experience (she has been general manager of many high profile restaurants including Blanc's) she is dedicated to creating a relaxed atmosphere and truly efficient service.
Edie's Kitchen (pronounced 'EE-DEES', not 'EDDIES') is named after Nigel and Kelly's first daughter Edie, with the 'I' picked out in green as a nod to their new baby, Iris. The family live locally and were excited about becoming a part of the community that they serve, with Edie's Kitchen welcoming both locals and visitors alike
Nigel says, "I've always dreamt of coming back to Cornwall and opening my own restaurant. I'm really excited about using locally sourced produce, delivered to us daily to create an ever-evolving menu. Kelly and I are passionate about making Edie's Kitchen become the place to visit for fresh, delicious food and a great atmosphere."
