Kitchen tour helps Hos­pice

North Taranaki Midweek - - MEANWHILE, OUTSIDE AUCKLAND -

It’s al­ways fun to see other peo­ple’s kitchens.

Here’s a chance for you to share the plea­sure of an­other woman’s kitchen.

On Sun­day Oc­to­ber 15, 10 pri­vate kitchens in New Ply­mouth and Oakura will be open for view­ing in a fundraiser for Taranaki Hos­pice. Or­gan­ised by Bar­bara Olsen-Hen­der­son of the Bach on Break­wa­ter Cafe´ & Res­tau­rant, the kitchens cho­sen for Kitchen Tour for Hos­pice are di­verse in their de­signs and in­spi­ra­tions. There’s mod­ern rus­tic, French cot­tage, hum­ble farm­house, olde worlde, sleek mod­ern and more. As well as hav­ing their ta­bles set up for a small din­ner party, the own­ers will have dis­plays of the books that have in­flu­enced them in their choices – cook­books and de­sign books.

Af­ter 11 years of hold­ing din­ners as an an­nual fundraiser for Hos­pice, Olsen-Hen­der­son de­cided to try some­thing dif­fer­ent.

‘‘I just thought it was time to have a change. I en­joy house tours my­self and al­ways take a girl­friend or two with me when I get the op­por­tu­nity, so I thought this would ap­peal and raise lots of lovely money for Hos­pice. Ev­ery­one has been so en­thu­si­as­tic and help­ful and I’m feel­ing very ex­cited.’’

Af­ter the Kitchen Tour, which runs from 10am-4pm on the day, there will be an evening func­tion from 5-6.30pm.

Tick­ets to both events cost $35, but if you’d just like to go on the Kitchen Tour that ticket is $20. Kitchen Tour 10am-4pm ticket $20; Bub­bles @ The Bach 5-6.30pm ticket $15. Tick­ets avail­able @ Bach on Break­wa­ter Cafe´ & Res­tau­rant, Hos­pice Shop Westown, Hos­pice Shop Wai­whakaiho. Email Hos­pice Taranaki rose.whi­taker@hos­pic­etaranaki.org.nz
