The Pleasure of Cornish Brown Crab in St Ives, Cornwall UK






























It got me thinking on how does one simply blog about crab.

It is excellent crab.  Delicious.  Decadent.  Rich.  Heavy!

And there goes my limited vocabulary to describe just how good these Cornish Crab is.

But I do know that they are known are Brown or Pasty Crab in Cornwall. The pasty shaped shell houses soft and flavoursome brown meat and the legs and claws are packed with the more delicate flavourite white meat. 

The roe however, packs a big punch!  Buttery, rich and flavourful infact a spoonful is more than enough to make you feel that your waistline just expanded. 






























I´ve had the pleasure of having these size ´S´crab all to myself.  It was hugeee, almost 35cm wide and more than a kilo heavy!  Good that I was not too greedy and asked for ´M´or ´L´!

After a good 1 1/2 hour with sides of salad and sampire ...

A long walk was needed.

Thankfully, this part of the world was blessed with sunny sky.
