The Seahorse Book- the restaurant & its recipes
Mitch and his best friend and chef Mat Prowse at The Seahorse opened the restaurant in 2008, something they had always wanted to do, have a small restaurant specialising in seafood by the sea. They opened little knowing how popular and much lauded their endeavours would become, going on to win many awards including The Observer Food Magazine's best UK restaurant in 2012 and the Good Food Guide's Best UK seafood restaurant in 2013 amongst others. This book will be all about the restaurant and the recipes, many of which have been inspired by their travels to the Mediterranean over the years. Written by Mitch and Mat it is going to be a book to enjoy and savour at length.
Publication will be June 18th 2015
From the publishers:
"The Seahorse… is perfect. Our dinner there was the best meal that I have had all year."
Giles Coren, The Times
The Seahorse on the mouth of the River Dart champions some of the best fish and shellfish in the world from the nearby landing site and is a favourite haunt of the foodie establishment. Co-owned by seafood hero Mitch Tonks and Mat Prowse, the menu is a seafood lover’s tour of Europe’s great fish dishes and cooking over a charcoal fire is the restaurant’s specialty. The food’s simplicity is deceptive as it is refreshing, focusing on the catch of the day rather than fancy presentation. Cherished by critics, foodies and locals, The Seahorse is a rare and beautiful gem in Britain’s sea of restaurants, championed 'Best Seafood Restaurant in the UK 2013' by the Good Food Guide and 'Best UK Restaurant 2012' by Observer Food Monthly.
The Seahorse is a beacon of seafood brilliance – showcasing over 100 delectable dishes served at the shore-side eatery, and capturing pearls of advice from the fish experts themselves.
