Chef's Bio

Nathan Outlaw

Chef of Restaurant Nathan Outlaw, UK

Nathan Outlaw is a Cornwall based chef who has gradually become a familiar personality across the UK, renowned for his focus on the simple delights of British seafood cookery. He now runs his flagship ‘Restaurant Nathan Outlaw’ in Port Isaac, Cornwall, alongside two other restaurants and one pub.

Nathan’s passion and respect for seafood cookery began with Rick Stein at The Seafood Restaurant in Padstow. Employed as a chef de partie, he worked his way up to a sous position alongside Head Chef Paul Ripley. Nathan’s entire first year at The Seafood Restaurant was spent prepping fish, and he recalls preparing almost every variety of fish caught off the South West coast! His second year saw him begin to master the fine art of cooking fish under the pressure of a busy kitchen. It was at The Seafood Restaurant that Nathan met his future wife, Rachel, a local girl who was working front of house. Together they decided it was time to move on and experience the world of fine dining.
