Hidden Hut Feasts
03 May 2016
It was such a joy to be asked back to The Hidden Hut to photograph another season of their legendary feast nights. I love everything from the staggering views up the Roseland coastline, the walk down over the cliff to the hut itself, and then spending the evening with a great bunch of people, photographing the goings on there. Pretty much everything is done out in the open, with the chefs adjusting the cooking times according to which way the wind is blowing or whether there is a threat of rain in the forecast.
The newest addition to the equipment down there this year is a gigantic custom-built rotisserie which is powered by an old Stannah stairlift motor. It’s a mesmerising sight to see this in action, both chefs and customers seemed to gather around it to stare in awe at the sight of 150 chickens spinning over the hot coals.
Things are moving and changing constantly down there as the sun dips down and the feast service kicks into action like clockwork. I love this element of photographing these feast nights, it keeps you on your toes and no two nights are the ever same.
Here are a few shots from the early part of the 2016 feasts:
