A chef who spent three and a half years working for arguably the world's wackiest gourmet, Heston Blumenthal, is about to work his own magic in Truro. Ged Calland will soon be cookin up a storm at Trennick Mill restaurant at Boscawen Park, formerly known as Citron in the Park.

Ged, who's 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 says: "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.
The restaurant opens this week serving lunches, afternoon teas, and evening meals, although there will be a more official opening in mid April.
