  1. Horopito lamb loin with smoky kumura mash and wilted watercress

    Horopito lamb loin with smoky kumura mash and wilted watercress

    Our Matariki inspired lamb dish takes some beautiful NZ lamb from ovation and spices it up with native horopito.  Kumara, a Kiwi staple is given a smoky flavour, reminiscent of a hangi.  Finally a very traditional green, watercress, is wilted and served on the side.  Matariki is a harvest celebration, a time to give thanks and share a meal with loved ones.  In the spirit of preserving and treasuring everything we even made kumara crisps out of the peel.

  8. Lasagne

    Lasagne

    Lasagne is an ultimate comfort food for me and always a crowd pleaser!  This recipe is the no holds barred version with a light fluffy white sauce from the ricotta and added egg. The deep rich meat sauce slowly bubbles away for an hour to enrich all the flavours.  So this is perhaps not the quick mid-week meal, but trust us the extra time and effort is well worth it.
