Blumenthal chef takes on Truro's Trennick Mill
After a three and a half year stint working for arguably the world's wackiest gourmet, Heston Blumenthal, chef Ged Calland is about work his own magic at the Trennick Mill restaurant at Boscawen Park in Truro (formerly Citron in the Park.)
Ged, whose 20 years in the industry includes experience working at Heston's Michelin Star Hinds Head restaurant in Berkshire, the award-winning Hambleton Hall restaurant in Rutland and the Tresanton Hotel in St Mawes, will be head chef at the restaurant.
Ged said: "It's been a long time coming. I've worked in great restaurants but always for other people. I know how to cook and it's about time I did it on my own."
But Ged won't be completely on his own as the restaurant is very much a family affair. The restaurant's new owners are in fact his brother and sister-in-law John and Hannah Calland, who run the Old Quay Inn at Devoran.

The couple, who will continue to run the Old Quay Inn, plan to create 'something special but affordable' at their Truro business.
They're opening the restaurant this week serving lunches, afternoon teas, and evening meals, with a more official opening in mid-April.
They're starting by reverting back to the restaurant's original name. Hannah said: "Everyone refers to this place as Trennick Mill, so we're going back to that. This is an amazing location and we want the front of house and food to match up to that."
