APPLETON’S AT THE VINEYARD
A brand new feature added to the hugely popular Cornwall Macmillan Christmas Fair tombola this year is the Christmas Stocking. For a £5 stake you will have the chance to win some genuinely fantastic prizes generously donated by supporters of the Macmillan cause. Appleton’s Bar & Restaurant have kindly donated a £50 voucher towards a truly memorable dining experience. In Lyndsey’s own words “We are happy to support Macmillan in Cornwall as it is a charity that means a lot to us on a personal level and both have family members that have benefited from support from Macmillan in the past. The work they do is crucial and makes all the difference to individuals and also their immediate family in times of true trauma caused by that horrid dreadful disease.”
Established in March 2016 by Andy Appleton and his partner Lyndsey, Appleton’s At The Vineyard is situated in a modern building within an operational vineyard and winery, Trevibban Mill, on the way to Padstow, Cornwall.
Andy is a self taught chef, learning most of his skills from many amazing chefs he has had the pleasure to work with through out his career, and gaining most of his passion from travelling the world (Italy particularly). For Andy, food is about more than the recipes – it’s a whole attitude and lifestyle that makes great food the focus of every day. It’s about sourcing the best seasonal ingredients at their peak, and letting them do the talking without unnecessary clutter and complexity. Taking rustic, Italian dishes and adding a contemporary twist, Andy creates unique menus that bring the best of Italy and Cornwall together on a plate. Andy uses some specialist exciting ingredients from Italy but primarily the best of the west and using many local producers to support the local economy, the Vineyard has its own herb and vegetable kitchen garden and rears its own lamb for him to use, taking the sourcing ethos of using produce on his doorstep, very literally!
