Join the fabulous culinary adventurer extraordinaire, Peta Mathias, for a small-group cooking demo, tasting, and reading from her new book, "Eat Your Heart Out: Love Stories From Around The World."
Peta will regale us with witty, sometimes wicked, stories from the book which includes a recipe for an orgasmic flourless chocolate and almond torte, and a story about rose petals that made quail taste so good it led to fornication on galloping horses!
After her reading, Peta will teach three recipes inspired by the French, Indian and Italian stories from the book: Saussoun, Rajasthani White Chicken Curry, and Fig & Mascarpone Flat Tarts. You'll make your own tart and taste all three dishes served with fresh organic vegetables from the organiser's Wellington garden.(Chef Wendy Nolan Joyce of www.savour.org.nz).
Enjoy a glass of fine French Champagne sponsored from the multi-award-winning champagne house Fallet Dart and merlot from Craggy Range.
Peta will also be selling and signing copies of her book.
Spaces are limited! This will be Peta's only Wellington appearance so get in quick!
