Beach Retreats hosts Food Tube

16th March 2015

As an ambassador for Jamie Oliver’s Food Foundation charity, Danny McCubbin is spreading the love of cooking and eating good food. We’ve picked some of our favourite video recipes from him, one of which was recently filmed in our Watergate Bay ‘Village’ properties.

Danny McCubbin has worked for Jamie Oliver for more than 10 years – four of them as his personal assistant. Unsurprisingly, it seems that cheeky Aussie Danny has absorbed Jamie’s enthusiasm and passion for food.

It’s something that’s become extremely important in Danny’s new role as an ambassador for Jamie’s Food Foundation. The charity is committed to shaping the health and wellbeing of current and future generations, by providing better access to food education for everyone.

As part of his work, Danny regularly travels the worlds and uploads video recipes of him cooking with various high-profile foodies to Jamie’s Food Tube channel – one of the largest food channels on You Tube.

As part of the FoodTube family, his travels recently took him to Watergate Bay and Fifteen Cornwall’s Spring Fayre. In between checking out the stalls and food demonstrations, he managed to squeeze in a new recipe filming at his home for the night, Buryan– one of our spectacular properties overlooking the beach.

Easy Mint Sauce

This is such a simple recipe, perfect for Sunday roasts – especially some gorgeous lamb for Easter Sunday. Spot the lovely kitchen backdrop?


Kale salad with anchovy and lemon dressing

Danny teams up with organic fruit and veg box supplier Abel & Cole for this simple, tasty and healthy salad.


Soda Bread

One of Danny’s all-time favourite Ministry of Food recipes. If he can bake it, anyone can!
