Dominic Bailey has been running the pop-up CAST CAFÉ in Helston since the Spring of 2015. After a long spell in restaurant management at The Duke of Cambridge Organic Pub in London and, more recently, at The Gurnard’s Head in Cornwall, he decided to take on a new challenge and get cooking for a living. CAST CAFÉ runs three days a week, taking over a corner of the historic Passmore Edwards building in Helston, currently managed as artists’ studios by arts charity CAST (Cornubian Arts & Science Trust). Wholesome, predominantly vegetarian dishes are the café’s speciality, alongside some serious cakes, and coffee served from the café’s vintage Italian espresso machine. Further to running the pop-up, Dominic provides outside catering for a variety of clients, including Kestle Barton. Here at Kestle, he has also been collaborating regularly with artist Paul Chaney on the Critical Camping series, creating a series of meals thematically linked to Chaney’s work, Lizard Exit Plan, and all prepared in a custom-built open air, wood-fired kitchen.
