Traditionally, the barn has been the place where natural products have been kept at Estonian farmsteads. At the barn of Tammuri farm, food is rather feasted on than stored. Actually, there is no real need for storing it as the means of modern logistics allow bringing three times a week everything that Erki, master of the farm needs for preparing meals for his guests to the hillocks of Otepää.
The main raw materials are largely of foreign origin. This is almost like a modern version of peasant obstinacy. Foie gras is not just for the manor born but it tastes even better in a barn. Nonetheless, Tammuri is not a place for being obstinate. Every raw material can be given a local taste by herbs from one’s own garden or items from one’s own forest.
The word ‘restaurant’ sounds so refined in Estonian that many more unassuming places would not dare to call themselves so. In this regard, Tammuri is more of a restaurant than many elitist eating places. White table-cloths in a rustic barn setting. The menu is all about client’s wishes (in the chef’s mind, not on paper). The service is always personal – only one company of people is hosted at a time.
And last, but not least: Tammuri is the only one-man restaurant in Estonia!
