WOOD is a restaurant that combines seasonal, deliciously authentic flavours with a true passion for good food and cooking.
Headed up by Simon Wood, the menu showcases the character of the Head Chef who won Masterchef back in 2015.
For April, the restaurant is offering a very special deal for anyone dining on a Wednesday. You can grab 50% off their dinner tasting menu, a spectacular journey through outstanding British produce and a flair for creativity that sees Simon pay homage to his Manchester roots.
‘Some Beef, It’s Bones and Whey Soured Onion’ harks back to Simon’s childhood growing up in Oldham, tucking into bread and dripping.
Developed over the course of many months, the dish consists of several elements, including a “rich cut of British Beef… with a texture like butter“, sat atop bone marrow-fried bread, topped with bone marrow, cured ox heart and tongue and served in a dish of liquid bone marrow seasoned with beef sauce and chive oil.
The dish also features Simon’s take on the traditional Rag Pudding, an Oldham delicacy that consists of minced meat and onions wrapped in suet pastry.
Other dishes on the tasting menu include ‘Owd Yonner and Onions‘, ‘Hen’s Egg with Truffled Chips and Ham‘, ‘The Best Bit of Chicken‘ and ‘Exton Rose Strawberry, Marigold and Cereal Milk‘.
Simon, in describing his Tasting Menu explains:
“The finest suppliers in the country provide seasonal, high welfare, foraged exceptional produce. Which will be treated with the utmost respect.
“Salt, milk, butter, vinegars, wines, oils, herbs and spices must be of the highest quality throughout the restaurant.”
“Amazing produce treated correctly, as in the end, any dish is only as good as the products you are using.”
WOOD also offer up Seasonal (£60) and Classic (£90) Wine Flights which can be added on the day to pair with the Tasting Menu.
