Rick Stein x Mr Lyan
Rick and Charlie Stein have teamed up with world-renowned and award-winning mixologist Ryan Chetiyawardana AKA Mr Lyan, to create an innovative new cocktail list for their Barnes and Sandbanks restaurants’ menus. The new Rick Stein Cocktail Menu by Mr Lyan is built around Rick’s; his son, Charlie’s, and Ryan’s shared love of beautiful ingredients. Featuring a mix of new cocktails and refined versions of the classics, the list draws not only inspiration from Cornwall but from all of Rick’s travels, from India to Mexico. ‘There have been a few people I followed growing up and Rick Stein was one of them,’ says Chetiyawardana. ‘His honest, personal and considerate approach to cooking was a joy to watch. It’s been wonderful to meet the man and his family and see what an infectious, genuine love for the industry and the whole world of food and drink they all have. I’m really proud of this collaboration and to work with both Rick and Charlie.’ Mr Lyan has designed the list with the Stein family in mind. Twists on family personal favourites include Jack Stein’s Ribs-e-rita, Charlie’s Campari Fizz and Rick’s Ceylon Negroni. There are also fitting tributes to the restaurants such as the Padstow’s South & Stormy. The seafood’s not bad either... rickstein.com
