Last Thursday, I had a deadline looming, the delivery of 200 plates to Taste of Auckland, for the Corporate Dinner, in the Hospitality Marquee, at the request of Chef Giulio Sturla, Owner of Roots Restaurant, Lyttleton.
Roots Restaurant was Restaurant of the Year 2015, and is the only restaurant outside of Auckland to have Three Hats, the highest rating in New Zealand, presented this year at the Cuisine Awards.
So, some quick decisions, as I had just over three weeks to deliver. I purchased the right gear, and along with a sick infant, a lot of hard work and a couple of late nights, I pulled it off.
Giulio was very pleased and thankful. The news show, Seven Sharp, the show after One News, featured a few chefs, including Giulio, at Taste of Auckland. My plates made it onto prime time television, gorgeously presented with some Koura. Wow.
The future looks bright and very busy. Upcoming, on December 4th, I will be at the Auckland Fair, Shed 10, on Auckland’s Waterfront. See you there!
