Crab, Stock & 2 Smoking Lobsters

This year at Living Heritage Food Festivals you will have the opportunity to dine in the Crabstock Festivals® Ltd “Seafood & Shellfish” Pop Up Restaurant, called “Crab, Stock & 2 Smoking Lobsters” where a fantastic “Tastes of the Sea” Platter will be served up. You may also know this lovely dish as “Fruits de Mer”.

You will be served whole crab, lobster, mussels, oysters, clams, whelks and prawns (all subject to availability as everything is freshly caught and not frozen).

All the shellfish & seafood that we will be serving are caught using sustainable fishing methods, the Edible Brown Crab are caught in South Devon from local boats in Dartmouth who fish within the 6 mile limit, Lobster will be caught in Cornwall and again within the 6 mile limit, the Scallops are from South Devon and are purified over 48hours, the Mussels and Oyster are from the River Teign in Teignmouth, and are hand harvested by a Father & Son team, we will also be serving local Samphire from South Devon, North Atlantic prawns, South Coast Whelks and Clams from Dartmouth.
All the seafood & shellfish will be lovingly prepared by the Crabstock team on the day, and you will be supplied Bibs and Crab Picking Tools, Adrian Bartlett will be giving a talk about his life on the seas and showing you all how to pick your own crabs.
There may even be a few surprise visitors.
Here are some comments from previous diners:

“Have just come back from a Fruits de Mer evening in Northampton and we all thought the seafood was absolutely first class. Huge amounts of the freshest of sea foods – beat Rick Stein’s Padstow restaurant hands down! Superb value for money!”  Rita Ayers
