The Farm at Cape Kidnappers will celebrate five great years of New Zealand hospitality, with chef Peter Gordon cooking at special food and wine weekend on September 1, also featuring one of the country’s top wineries, Neudorf.
Peter is one of New Zealand’s most successful exports. The Whanganui-born chef has three award-winning restaurants in London (The Providores, Tapa Room, and most recently, Kopapa, in the vibrant Seven Dials area of Covent Garden) as well as New Zealand (Bellota tapas and wine bar).
The signature degustation dinner prepared by Peter at The Farm at Cape Kidnappers will be matched with Neudorf Vineyard wines from New Zealand’s Nelson region. Highly-regarded Neudorf winery is a fitting match to Peter’s brand of fusion dishes and Neudorf owners Tim and Judy Finn will present the wines throughout the evening.
For those who arrive Friday, the weekend will kick off on Friday night with a cocktail reception celebrating and welcoming Peter to Cape Kidnappers. On Saturday morning, those guests who have stayed Friday night will have the opportunity to learn from the master, as Peter will conduct a one-hour cooking demonstration and share some culinary tips. Saturday afternoon will provide ample time to enjoy the property or the Hawke’s Bay area, famous for its orchards, Art Deco architecture and wineries.
Tariff includes accommodation in a suite with pre dinner drinks and canapes, gourmet dinner by Peter on Saturday night, full breakfast, complimentary mini-bar (excludes liquor and wine) and use of lodge facilities including your choice of either a day of unlimited green fees or a 50 minute massage.
