The experience of opening our restaurant has being amazing, from the beginning until today, the people have been the most important part of this project. Everyday we have the opportunity to meet somebody who makes our day better or just share good words with us.
2 weeks have passed since we opened and we are very happy with the functioning of the restaurant. The service is been run by Christy, Patsy, Phoebe, and Juliane, in the kitchen Adrian, Xander, Mikayla and I. Awesome team!
A 10 course menu is prepared every service, with the option to choose from 5, 7 or 10, adjusting it for different dietary requirements. Part of the menu has a selection of starters to prepare our guest for the main event.
As the menu changes depending on what we prepare in the kitchen, what we find in the market and what nature offers from the garden, here is a list of the ingredients we have used in the last 2 weeks:
Asparagus Koura Rhubarb Artichokes Oxtail Elder cordial Eel Courgettes Broad beans Spinach Skate wings Quail eggs Caramel Eggplant Red/green cabbage Honey comb Goat cheeses Beetroot Garlic Salmon A whole lamb Monk fish Agria potatoes Spring onions Yogurt Konini wheat Organic whole milk Cassava flour Olive oil Cultured butter Radish New onions Flounder Carrots Whole wheat Sole Chicken wings Turnips Daikon Double cream Vanilla beans Red onions
Thanks to everyone that came to the Karakia, on our first night and every day after that. It is a precious thing for us to share with all of you what we love to do.
