Local chefs tell us what tickles their taste buds on the Isle of Wight…

What is the best thing about the Island’s food culture?
The diversity. When I won The Gurt Cook Off last year I was amazed to see so much local produce available. We are so lucky to have an abundance, from Island smoked salmon to Tipsy Wight vodkas, as well as locally made ales and a great fizz from Adgestone this year. Plus look at our crab, lobster and prawns when they are in season.

What is your favourite local ingredient?
Fresh crab of course. It’s fabulous.

Where would you go for a cuppa and a slice of something nice?
When the sun is out there is no better spot than The Beach Hut in Bembridge sitting watching the waves crash on the beach.

Your favourite place for a special night out?
We like to walk along to The Duck for supper, the food is superb.

What is the one dish on your menu you keep coming back to?
Our fabulous lobster bisque with fresh IW crab. It’s extremely moreish!

What is your favourite local tipple?
Adgestone fizz. It’s simply lovely. I’ve also got quite partial to a Quarr Abbey Ale… it’s light with a sweet honey flavour.
