Spring/Summer Hosted Dinners
(By prior arrangement, Table d'hote)
Our Hosted Dinners are very popular with our guests (see our reviews on TripAdvisor).
We select the very best seasonal produce to showcase our Lodge's, and New Zealand's, fabulous food & wine.
Canapés of the Day are served in the guest lounge or in the Lodge gardens on fine evenings
with your choice of fine NZ wine or a locally brewed craft beer.
The Main Course might be a stunning side of fresh Bluff Salmon, hot-smoked with a Whisky & Manuka Marinade or
locally-grown Beef Eye Fillet or perfectly grilled Hawkes' Bay Lamb Rump served with a Red Wine Jus.
A rich & satisfying Lentil & Quinoa Moussaka with Macadamia Pesto delights our vegetarian/vegan guests.
The main course is accompanied by lodge-grown Agria Potatoes & a fresh garden salad.
A NZ wine to suit the dish, or your palate, will be served.
Desserts are a real highlight for many and include home-made classics such as
Dark Chocolate Semi freddo with fresh Berry Couli & Spiced Shortbread (GF without shortbread)
Lodge-grown Rhubarb Tarts with Orange-Scented Cream (GF available)
Individual Pavlova w fresh fruit & whipped cream
Berry or Lodge-grown Plum Cheesecake with whipped cream
Dessert Cake of the day with Cream or Ice Cream
A NZ dessert wine (sticky!) will be served.
Webster's Organic Tea, Volcanic Roasters Organic Coffee or Hot Chocolate to follow with
Angie's delicious hand-made Chocolate Liqueur Truffles or Petit Fours to finish.
