Shepherd Souss Chef Taylor Paddle and Head Chef Kyle Camara are preparing to reopen the city’s hospitality scene on Level 2.
Shepherd Elliott, owner and chef of Shepherd Restaurant, said the announcement of the reopening of the festival was “a relief and a little commotion”.
On Tuesday afternoon, Elliott saw a team of five people walking around the city collecting ingredients, and preparing the kitchen. “You’re looking at three days to get the restaurant ready.”

He hoped that the festival would bring people through the doors. “Coming out of the lockdown feels a little different this time. There’s not enough excitement. It’ll be interesting to see the uptake.

Ferguson contacted people whose bookings had been canceled, and places were rapidly filling up. She was “really impressed” with how Wellington picked her up – so much so that the restaurant decided to run the event for three weeks instead of the original two.
