One of Seasalt’s olympic rowers, Helen Glover, became a gold medallist at the London 2012 games. We caught up with her after her homecoming bus tour of her home town of Penzance and she told us how it felt to become an Olympic Champion…
With the bank holiday weekend and the Newlyn Fish Festival coming up we thought we’d share this quick and easy fishy BBQ recipe with you. Plus, if you fancy getting your hands on £100 worth of ethically sourced Cornish seafood vouchers from our good friends Fish For Thought, make sure you enter our competition.
We were given this gorgeous scallop recipe and it’s so tasty we thought we’d share it with you. Plus, if you fancy getting your hands on £100 worth of ethically sourced Cornish seafood vouchers from our good friends Fish For Thought, make sure you enter our competition.
Last week, the town of Falmouth celebrated perhaps its biggest week in the annual calendar – Falmouth Week. The annual regatta is filled with competitive racing on the water, from traditional working boats to dinghies and dragon boats, coupled with an exciting entertainments programme of music, aerobatic display, dance and fireworks.
The girls from our Falmouth shop just couldn’t resist getting into the party mood and spent the week dressed as sailors – quite possibly the most attractive bunch of seafarers we’ve ever seen! Nice work ladies!
Thousands of people lined the streets of Penzance and Newlyn yesterday to welcome home Olympic gold medallist Helen Glover and of course Seasalt were there to cheer her on!
Mark Fuszard at the finish line of the Namib Desert Challenge
A few months ago we were approached by Mark Fuszard to help him raise money for Cornwall Air Ambulance. He is a paramedic on the air ambulance and was taking part in the Namib Desert Challenge – a bit of a bonkers 220km multi day endurance footrace through the desert, it is basically 5 marathons in 5 days in 40 degree heat! Of course we gave Mark a bag full of Seasalt goodies to auction off at his fundraising evening earlier this year and he has sent us a little report on what it was actually like to run 220km in the baking heat of the Namib desert…
At Seasalt HQ we all have a bit of a chocolate and cake addiction so we thought we’d mix the two together and share with you a delicious recipe for chocolate brownies that have a little twist of Cornish sea salt to make them a little different and extra tasty – plus it goes with our name so we couldn’t resist a little baking session! Highly recommended served warm with a big dollop of Cornish clotted cream….
