Great Food & Great Views at the First Ever wesup. Feast Night with ATTA

wesup x atta feast night

This summer saw the first of our collaborative feast nights at our beautiful new Coffeebox site on Pendennis Point. We had such a fantastic evening and hope it will be the beginning of many more to come!

On a balmy evening in July, we gathered on our picnic blankets for an evening of delicious south indian thalis from our friends at ATTA street food.

Brad Snowden – chef and founder of ATTA – is one of our longstanding club wesup. members and it’s always a pleasure to eat his amazing food in the company of good friends. Our wesup. community is just as much about forging friendships and sharing our love of the Cornish lifestyle as it is about the technical side of paddleboarding, and evenings like this one are perfect for doing just that. The weather may have been teasing us with the threat of thunder, but in true wesup. spirit, we’d rather get out there and enjoy our beautiful spot by the sea than hide away indoors.

Inspired by his travels in Southern India and his passion for sustainable plant-based eating, Brad served up one of his best thalis yet:

Mushroom Dal,
Tamarind and Aloo Chana Chaat,
Hill Station Salad,
Star Anise and Clove Spiced Black Rice,
Pineapple Raita,
A Homemade Garlic Chapati,
Radish, Cauliflower and Carrot Pickle,
Garnish of Pomegranate, Toasted seeds and Coriander.

Full of flavour but not overpowering in spice, Brad’s food has been fine tuned to a tee, and we think it gets better every time you go back for more. It’s a shame we can’t share the smell of curries cooking via blog post, because believe me your mouth would be watering!

The threatening humid skies held off just long enough for us to finish our food and enjoy the music and views across the bay until dusk. At a time when so many indoor eating options are really limited due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was such a treat to sit outside in open space and share food with friends. The relaxed outdoor environment was absolutely perfect for getting back into the social swing of things without having to brave the crowded eateries of town.
