Taste the Topp Twins, see the ex­hi­bi­tion

The Tribune (NZ) - - SAVOUR -

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.
