Top luxury British retreat The Idle Rocks is poised to host the international, award winning Knightsbridge restaurant ZUMA for a two night culinary experience, set within the hotel’s seaside restaurant. On the evenings of the 21st and 22nd of August 2015, ZUMA will be serving a specially created menu at The Idle Rocks. Authentic but not traditional, the modern Japanese menu will reflect ZUMA’s ‘izakaya’ style of dining, using local Cornish produce. Staying true to Co-founder and Creator Rainer Becker’s sharing concept, the menu will feature iconic ZUMA dishes, showcasing the best of Cornwall’s seafood, paired with matching wines and sakes. For example, sliced yellowtail with green chilli relish, ponzu and pickled garlic; marinated black cod wrapped in hoba leaf and roasted Cornish lobster with green chilli, garlic and hojiso butter will be available. The hotel’s restaurant and outdoor terrace overlooking the picturesque St Mawes harbour and out towards the sea, are the perfect location for ZUMA at The Idle Rocks.
David Richards comments: “We are delighted to welcome ZUMA to The Idle Rocks for an exciting marriage between traditional coastal culture and contemporary Japanese cuisine. This is the first time ever that ZUMA has collaborated with a hotel in the UK reinforcing Cornwall’s culinary credentials. We are excited for the local community and our guests to sample the Chef’s unique creations.”
