Taste the Topp Twins, see the exhibition
The Topp Twins exhibition at Te Manawa is proving to be a great success.
Copthorne Hotel has established a close relationship with Te Manawa through its ‘‘locals supporting locals’’ mantra and has themed a menu around the many Topp Twins characters so locals can see, hear, smell, taste and enjoy this exhibition to its fullest.
The three-course set menu costs $45 per person, and includes tickets to the exhibition at Te Manawa. It’s a Kiwiana treat that Ken and Ken or Camp Mother and Camp Leader would thoroughly enjoy.
‘‘It’s hot, nutritious winter food cooked to perfection that will satisfy Kiwi diners and especially those who enjoy the Topp Twins’ TV series or stage performances,’’ Carey Lister says.
The menu is a celebration of Kiwi favourites, including a special delectable feijoa crumble dessert.
‘‘In association with Feijoa and Persimmon Growers Council, we are actively promoting the benefits of this wonderful fruit and our Feijoa Fantasy crumble is just one of the many delightful dishes our kitchen team has created to do this,’’ Carey says.
‘‘This is a celebration of the things that have shaped us as a nation and the spirit and values of the things that unite us rather than divide us,’’ Te Manawa Chief Executive Andy Lowe says.
Since Jimmy Cook’s was rebranded three years ago, the Copthorne Hotel has been actively involved in supporting local organisations such as the Palmerston North Golf Club, IHC and Squash Gym to name just a few.
The hotel is also proud to be the major sponsor of the upcoming 2018 National NZ Chess Congress, which will be held here in early January 2018. This is the 125th NZ Congress and the first to be held in the Manawatu for 71 years.
The hotel’s ongoing sponsorship has enabled the local Manawatu Knights chess club to secure this prestigious event, and in doing so, has provided a great example of what can be achieved by small clubs when they have some solid local business support behind them.
