After the success of our ‘How to Run a Pop up Restaurant‘ book in 2015, 2016 is going to be the year of pop up restaurants for The Shotgun Chef. I am looking to hold at least two restaurants per month in Epping and many of them will be held on my family’s farm. This first event is on Thursday 3rd of December but we will be open for business on the 11th and 18th of December as well. To book email William@theshotgunchef.co.uk.
My family’s Georgian farmhouse, where we have lived since 1920, is a fantastic setting for a dining event and all our local produce will go into creating some fantastic food.
The restaurant menu for Thursday 3rd December from 6pm-9:30pm at Weald Place Farm, 9 Duck Lane, Thornwood, Epping, CM16 6NE is:
Roast pumpkin soup and homemade bread £6
Potted partridge with sourdough toast and homemade butter £8.50

Griddled spatchcock partridge with rosemary and thyme served with roast potatoes and honey-glazed root vegetables £17.50
