Food and the outdoors are Jane and Myles Lamberth's great passions. Myles learnt his cookery skills in some unique locations around the world: he's cooked on campfires in Africa while river guiding, been a chef at exclusive chalets in the French Alps, and working for a top on-site catering company in the US where he cooked for musicians like The Gypsy Kings and Snoop Dogg. Closer to home, he spent several seasons working as a chef in prestigious beach hotels like the 5-star Headland Hotel in Cornwall. Jane, meanwhile, began her career in marketing but her love of travel soon took her away from the city to destinations that offered surf or snow. The couple met in Cornwall and spent the next five years working and travelling together, doing seasonal work in the UK and France. In 2010 they opened Shells Cafe at Strandhill on the beautiful Atlantic coast of northwest Ireland. Shells quickly developed a name as a flourishing eatery serving delicious wholesome foods, and Jane and Myles went on to write several books about their experiences, filled with fabulous recipes. The Surf Cafe Cookbook (also published by Orca Publications) has since been a runaway success, receiving glowing reviews from cookery mags and blogs around the world. Their other titles include Surf Cafe Living and Good Vibes Cookbook.
Myles Lamberth is head chef at Shells Cafe in Strandhill, Ireland. He's the co-author (with wife Jane) of the highly successful Surf Cafe Cookbook.
