I'm in the middle of planning a really great event and I had to share some pictures from my last one. The below pictures are from the Sunday Lunch dining series I organised over summer at the Golden Dawn. Clever chef Beckie Pillay prepared (as always) absolutly stunning food. Mostly cooked outdoors over an open fire. Everything was served on large shared platters and guests sat on long communal tables in the Golden Dawn courtyard. Guests came with friends but inevietably made more. There was live music, kids running around and thankfully lovely weather.
We're doing it all again! This time with a really cosy Sunday Supper series over July, August and September. The first is on Sunday 28th July at 5pm. There will be a raw bar in the courtyard so guests can enjoy arrival drinks, music and oysters freshly shucked by the good folks from Mahurangi Oysters. Then we'll move inside where everyone will be seated along one long table. More excellent music and great food......
