Ora Cultro: A Knife’s Edge

Creating delicious food has always been a passion of mine, but one that was confined to entertaining family and friends, until at the age of 44 I decided to find out once and for all whether a 'foodie' could make it in a professional kitchen. I managed to persuade  Adam Charity, then manager at The Talbot in Oundle, to give a complete novice the chance to work in a professional kitchen. And it was there that it all began.

I quickly moved on to the well-established Olive Branch at Clipsham, and an initiation into the world of high end cooking. Then came the chance to join brand new restaurant the Chubby Castor, while at the same time I came up with the idea to launch my own venture -  a new fine dining experience in Oundle. I hope you enjoy it!

Finally.....the name....after several evenings spent with glass of wine in hand, Ora Cultro was born. A Latin phrase, meaning 'a knife’s edge', it seemed very apt, reflecting both my new tool of the trade and the fact that we are, as we launch our new business, on a knife’s edge!

The crab lasagne was the best I’ve ever had - scrumptious.
