Tomorrow evening, the 8th of May, we have Falmouth’s very own Cafe Scientifique kicking off with a lecture from Dr Sasha Dall on; “Unintelligent design: understanding the complexities of life”
Dr Sasha is the Snr Lecturer in Mathematical Biology of Exeter’s Tremough campus, and will enlighten us with this broad introduction to the modern study of evolutionary biology, with particular focus on animal behaviour.
Sasha will also be able to give an indication of other areas which his research study group explores; and this may prompt ideas and suggestions for future talks.
Sasha’s talk will start at 8pm, run for 20-30 minutes; and then we will have a brief break for refreshment before the Q&A.
To help manage what might be a sudden rush of orders, you can order food in advance, and you will also be able to pre-order interval drinks on the night.

Quick recipe for you to try when the sun comes back out:
- 1 sml punnet of English Strawberries
- 20 thin slices of cucmber
- handful of fresh mint leaves
- pinch of chilli flakes
- pinch of Cornish Seasalt
- pinch of sugar
- 250g pack of Halloumi
- Slice your strawberries thinly from top to bottom giving you pretty litle heart shapes.
- Arrange them on a flat presentation dish or large dinner plate, alternating between cucumber and strawberry.
- Pull any thick stems of your mint leaves and discard, then sprinkle your salt, sugar and chilli flakes onto your mint leaves and chop away until the mint is very fine.
- Sprinkle your chilli-mint mixture over your strawberry and cucumber display and leave to infuse.
- While your barbecue (or griddle pan) is heating up, slice your halloumi into half cm thick slices.
- Lay the halloumi onto your now hot barbecue and cook for approximately 1 minute on each side.
- Once golden, arrange the halloumi in the centre of your strawberry salad and share…
Tonight’s catwalk of dishes features some of our gorgeous Veg rack newcomers:
We have some very English heritage tomatoes dressed in a slinky little Italian twinset of Organic Calabrian EVO Oil & a matured Organic Balsamic.
We’ll also be debuting the Spaghetti Squash; an up & coming veg, who tonight will be shrouded within a silky free-range frittata, accessorised perfectly with some jewels of Cornish Organic Brie…

Maxwell Golden stars in a fish-out-of-water tale of an MC’s journey from the cliffs of Cornwall to the streets of London on the search for a Hip Hop community. What will he find?
Last October we hosted a very special pre-tour performance of CountryBoys Struggle. We are delighted to be able to invite Maxwell Golden back for another intimate warm-up gig ahead of his short tour of Cornish town halls.
Country Boy’s Struggle tells the endearing story of Michael, a hopeful MC who travels from the wild Cornish cliffs of Bude to the bright lights ofLondonon a mission to find his place in the city’s hip hop scene. His dreams very quickly clash with reality as Michaal faces the challenges of washing dishes, stage fright and eccentric flat mates. Maxwell Golden brings the story to life with a mixture of physical theatre, character driven comedy and an impressive range as an MC.
Fusing hip-hop and theatre, comedy and drama, this one man-show is an unmissable experience for audiences both young and old. The intimate and friendly atmosphere at The Courtyard Deli offers the rare opportunity for a small audience to see a high quality theatre performance i
‘Maxwell Golden delivers a searing beat monologue to music…an excellent piece that does a lot with a little.’ n a unique, intimate environment.
- British Theatre Guide on Everything Must Go
“It is a privilege to watch him find his way, not only in London, but within himself and his community. The struggle is very real, but the message is positive and life-enhancing.”
– Avril Silk, remotegoat.co.uk

Those that will have ventured into the Deli over the Easter holidays will have probably witnessed some of the chaos brought about by our recent refit… I say chaos but considering it was the Easter holidays and we didn’t close or reduce any of our opening hours, the complex timetable of fridge deliveries, collections, building of counters and painting probably couldn’t have been much smoother.
The great changes and developments were all brought about by the impulse buy of our gorgeous new Berkel Flywheel Meat Slicer, which you will find stationed in prime position in the all new layout, sparkling, and just crying out to offer you finely sliced cured meats from around the globe.
The feature of this hand crafted original piece of engineering is the fact that is powered solely by hand. On turning the cast iron flywheel the blade will spin and so too will the carriage glide back and forth gradually edging closer to the sharp disc allowing the slices to be uniform perfection.
The benefit: Flavour. Slicing at this relatively slow speed enhances the flavour tenfold compared to the supermarket product that must be frozen before slicing because the blade spins so fast, and gets so hot that it literally defrosts the meat on contact.
Seeing and then tasting, really is believing though! Pop in and perch on stools around the meat slicer on Thursday to Saturday nights, with a glass of Spanish Cava, a charcuterie board and a few tapas to share. We’ll look forward to having you
Having just updated details of our upcoming events I felt it was about time to review our last evening of entertainment… Helped along by a lovely little note from some of our guests on February 9th.
Mac Dunlop lead an evening of poetry and music made complete with the art of food, presented as a 3 course meal with bites of entertainment between each course. Mac was joined by Rob Barratt, Nick Jarvis, Seamus Carey and Danielle Allen; who all offered their own take on the upcoming Valentine’s Day…
