Chef's Table and Development Kitchen

Serving as a development kitchen for our restaurants, our team explore new combinations of flavour and technique to create innovative dishes from the very best seasonal ingredients.

Our chef’s table is an exclusive opportunity to gain insight into the creative process of dish development, with the chance to sample new dishes before they reach the menu at Paul Ainsworth at No6.

Sitting just centimetres away from the kitchen, guests can watch our team prepare a tasting menu of modern British gastronomy, crafted from meticulously sourced, seasonal Cornish produce.

The chef’s table is a unique and completely personal experience – you can choose to interact with our chef’s through every step of the cooking process, or slip out onto our private terrace with a cocktail between courses.

Our sommeliers at Paul Ainsworth at No6, personally select the wines in our Padstow cellar, and have created two exclusive wine flights to enhance our dishes. A celebratory glass of fizz is included with your tasting menu, to help you start your evening in style, and our sommeliers are on hand to guide you through our wine list and help you choose something special to take your evening with us to the next level.

Sample Menu
Josh Green - Development chef, Mahé

Josh is instrumental in the development of both the Mahè dining experience and seasonal collections at Paul Ainsworth at Number 6. A fountain of knowledge Josh has travelled extensively having spent a considerable period of time in South East Asia, this has helped shape the terrific cook he is today. A Casamia alumni having spent 10 years with the Sanchez-Iglesias family Josh was heavily involved in the expansion of the group and assisted with new openings Paco Tapas, Pi shop and Decimo. Now settled in Cornwall Josh heads up the Mahè chefs table with his infectious enthusiasm for all things gastronomy,  creating dishes which showcase and celebrate the amazing bounty of ingredients that Cornwall has to offer.

Mahé offers guests the opportunity to see Josh’s craftsmanship and phenomenal flair for contemporary cookery in action and gain a deeper understanding of the culinary progression behind every dish.
