Making Menus Shine The Chefs’ Forum’s Food and Event Photographers
To show off our latest skill set we dropped in to catch-up with Head Chef Caley Briddick at The Kings Arms in Otterton and completed a full photoshoot of menu highlights.
The result is eye-catching and Caley’s dishes look superb. She is fresh from a stint in London working with Adam Handling and has returned to Devon to open her own place. Accommodation is available immediately and the pub is flourishing. So much so that the kitchen is looking for staff to join this stunning new addition to the Devon dining scene.
The three dishes cooked by Sous Chef Keenan Paver were as follows:
- Pan fried brill, scallop, boulangère potato, leek etuve, nettle variations
- Monkfish Scampi, Pineapple and Sweetcorn salsa, curry emulsion, coriander
- Curried cauliflower velouté, crispy leaves
The Kings Arms in Otterton is close to 3 beaches, lots of local walks and wildlife. It’s located in the heart of East Devon in a countryside Village and there’s lots of local produce for the chefs.
If that wasn’t enough of a treat for one week, we also visited Gidleigh Park, part of the Andrew Brownsword Hotel Group last weekend for a Michelin-starred treat cooked by Chef Chris Eden.
Every aspect of the food and service was exquisite and we captured the wonderful dishes and ambience of this wonderful place on camera.
