The name ‘Three Hares’ comes from the symbol found throughout the world from English churches, to synagogues and to Buddhist temples. It represents James and Nina’s style of cooking, influenced by James’ upbringing in the local area involved with wild foods and game, and heavily influenced by Nina’s background of growing up in Germany with Japanese parents.

Nina’s baking is influenced by her time at a baker’s in Dusseldorf, where bakeries still have 100 varieties of bread from Dark Rye through to White Sourdough with 200 year old Sourdough Starters. After moving to the UK she worked with several of the ‘New Wave’ bakers in the North of England which has led to a mix of the two cultures in her own baking. This can also be seen in Nina’s cakes and pastries which range from traditional scones, teacakes and Victoria sponges to continental-influenced cinnamon swirls, red wine and chocolate cake and pear and cinnamon.
