Before the age of steam Padstow was a key port, but is now known primarily for tourism and fishing. The town boasts some great restaurants including Paul Ainsworth at No. 6, and Rick Stein's seafood restaurant (and very good fish chip shop for a more modest outlay).
Bubble and squeak usually refers to mashed and fried cabbage, carrot, peas, potato or even Brussels sprouts. Here, the British delicacy is used in the otherwise Italian dish of risotto, topped with a gloriously crispy deep-fried egg - a classic Paul Ainsworth twist.
