It may be a food truck but Nara pushes new boundaries of what seems possible to come out of a small kitchen on wheels and this summer it will be housed at Palliser Estate in Martinborough.
The menu is anything but the classic deep fried menu on wheels. Lucy Mutch and Dan Dew take their inspiration from Ottolenghi and freshly grown seasonal ingredients.
“Fresh produce is close to our hearts. We make our own bread for the chicken sliders, pick our own olives, make our own humous and pick fresh ingredients locally wherever possible to create freshly prepared food which is served on proper plates,” says Dew.
The name Nara means close and nourish in Swedish. This captures the spirit of collaboration, community and locally grown food that Mutch and Dew have grown a following for over the past year in Martinborough.
This week they cemented a summer plan with Palliser to operate there for three days a week with their opening date planned for Friday 5 November.
Level 2 restrictions mean that Nara at Palliser will operate with table service and bookings essential.
“We are excited to have the Nara food truck here this summer and in these times it feels right to be keeping it local. We have extended our outdoor dining area so there is more room to enjoy a glass of wine in the park like surroundings with a plate of fresh, tasty Nara fare,” says Pip Goodwin, chief executive of Palliser.
- Nara at Palliser will be open for three days a week from Friday to Sunday from 5 November and for five days a week from Thursday to Monday from 18 November.
