Cornish Salmagundi(Summer in a Crab shell)
Summer in Cornwall, brings the best out of the land the sea and the air that is touchedby it. Little is known, and even more little is said about the cuisine and variety of foodthat was rustled up on sun kissed summer days embarking upon or havingembellished a pirate’s job. A recipe that often surfaces out of these dare devil acts of courage under fire, is a Cornish Salmagundy.Food cultures around the world have aunique version each of a cold salad dish that is so simple to put together, yet soappetisingly stomach filling. Be it the American Cobb Salad, Indian Jhal Muri, orJamaican Solomon Gundy end result is rather colourfully satisfying. Here is my Slowversion of a Cornish Pirate’s Salomon Grundy, using the best of Cornish summeringredients. What”s your Salmagundi?
