Project Description

Emily Scott

Restaurant Owner, Chef – Watergate Bay

Emily trained in London and France and her classical training forms the backbone of her cooking style. At 23 she moved to Cornwall where she successfully ran the Harbour Restaurant in Port Isaac. I was named best chef in the South West by Food magazine and been listed in the top 100 most influential women in the hospitality industry for the second year running. I have been recognised by Michelin since 2016 and I appeared on Great British Menu representing the South West on BBC 2 in 2019 during the competition I made sure that my ethos of pared down, seasonal cooking came across in her menu.

My new restaurant opens at Watergate Bay on May 18th.  My ethos being No faffing, no fussing, just beautiful food. The collaboration continues with the fine folk from Watergate Bay Hotel our love of hospitality and bringing people together.

My debut cookbook Sea & Shore Recipes & Stories from a cook and her kitchen is published on June 10th with Hardie Grant.
