Hungry? Bored of the same old flavour-favourite combinations and expensive side order of skin on fries, please? Are you looking for something new? Perhaps you’re after—and may even miss—The Walled Garden, Manchester’s newest clandestine fine dining pop up.
Award winning chef Eddie Shepherd conjures up extensive plant based tasting menus from his home-kitchen somewhere below M16. Inviting 8 diners to his table, with homemade cordials ready to be poured, Shepherd breaks down the barrier between patron and practitioner.
The team at Turtle and Hare recently visited Shepherd at his home ahead of an upcoming project. He talked us through a handful of ideas about reimagining the restaurant experience, certain dishes and their curious provenance, as well as the techniques and processes behind the menu.
When passion and creativity fuse together, push the boundary of what’s possible in the independent food industry, Turtle and Hare are never far from the story. We’re very excited about exploring more stories and secrets in our upcoming chef series, so be sure to follow us on our journey.
