Pioneering restaurateur Fleur Sullivan of Fleurs Place is heading north to Wairoa, and bringing her immensely talented, up-and-coming chef Lyall Minhinnick with her.
Join Fleur and Lyall at Kaiuku Marae in Mahia as they prepare for you the freshest kai from the land, sea and rivers.
Minhinnick, who was recently one of three finalists nationwide in the Beef and Lamb’s young ambassador competition, leans on his Māori and Pacific heritage for food ideas every day and uses the historical te reo names of herbs, plants and vegetables in his menus.
And while he is used to foraging around Moeraki for his ingredients, expect to get a true taste of Mahia with dishes including beef and crayfish.
Fleur and Lyall will also demonstrate how to use a Pōhā (bull kelp bag) for cooking.
This will be a truly special event with one of New Zealand’s most iconic culinary personalities and a gifted young chef, all set in stunning Mahia Peninsula.
Ticket price includes: four courses with matching wines and a demonstration on how to use a Pōhā (bull kelp bag) for cooking.
There are 100 tickets available for this event.
