The Nutters in question are not only chef-about-town Andrew, but also Rodney and Jean, who keep the books in check at their son’s comfortable restaurant overlooking Rochdale. Housed in an 18th-century manor surrounded by six acres of “fabulous” grounds, it offers a plethora of delights from “lovely” afternoon tea to Sunday lunch and a ‘gourmet’ offer. Andrew’s cooking reflects his frequent travels, but he’s also keen on local ingredients – witness a signature dish of crispy Bury black pudding wontons with ‘confetti of vegetables’.
