‘… much of the Cornish meat, fish and seafood cropping up on modish menus across London can be traced to one man: Matt Chatfield. For five years, this fiercely proud Cornishman from a long line of farmers has been working with fishermen, butchers and vegetable-growers in the county, selling their wares to some of the capital’s best eateries, and introducing them to chefs.’
‘…”The Cornwall Project is a London-Cornish collective,” he explains. “It’s aimed at driving Cornish produce, creating jobs in Cornwall – which is a huge area of unemployment – and enabling the producers to be better at what they do. As soon as the chefs meet the suppliers, they know they’re perfectionists – and we’re fussy about who we let in: we’re working with only 25 chefs at the moment. They know that to get the best out of the supplier, they’ve got to understand one another. No one’s tied to it – it’s all based on trust and friendship.'”
