Unique dining experience
At Woodcut, dishes are prepared in wood and charcoal grills, wood ovens and steam kettles. The earthy and sensory cooking methods impart a tangible element of flavour and authenticity to the cooking process. “Every person I know has experienced throughout their life and perhaps their travels, memories that are triggered by the experience of eating food cooked over fire. This rustic and traditional cooking source is so deeply satisfying and good for the soul… I have always been drawn back to this way of eating”.
