TWO OFA KIND
KELLI BRETT REFLECTS ON A VERY SPECIAL LUNCH THAT BROUGHT TOGETHER TWO OF NEW ZEALAND’S BEST CHEFS.
TO MARK 10 YEARS of his inspiring, standardsetting restaurant, Michael Meredith and his talented team have welcomed a star-studded line-up of friends into the Merediths kitchen in Auckland over the past months, including Peter Gunn (Ides), Aaron Turner (Igni), Jeremy Rameka (Pacifica) and Ben Shewry (Attica). The Cuisine team was privileged to co-host an exclusive Sunday lunch with Meredith and Shewry on September 24 at Merediths. As the cleverly curated menu unfolded, highlighting so many ingredients that are the essence of New Zealand food, there was a bittersweet flavour in the air. Meredith recently announced he will close the doors of Merediths in December to pursue new culinary adventures. Thank you for the lessons, the inspiration and for taking us to the world. We can’t wait to taste what Michael does next.
