Join Celebrity Chef Pete Evans for two food & wine weekends

Award-winning Australian chef, author, and TV personality (My Kitchen RulesPete Evans joins with his mate chef Gavin Baker for two fabulous weekends of love, laughter, food and wine at Matakauri Lodge (April 11-13) and The Farm at Cape Kidnappers (April 18-20).

Pete Evans‘ relaxed, elegant cooking style, along with his blue eyes, healthy tan and charming personality have made him one of TV’s favourite chefs. The My Kitchen Rules star has many loyal fans. His philosophy: Cook with Love + Laughter!

To kick things off, Pete Evans goes Spanish in the South Island at Matakauri Lodge for one big weekend April 11-13. At this fun-filled food and wine weekend, Pete and Gavin promise a fast-paced variety of flavours and creative combinations from tapas to racions (larger plates), inspired by Pete’s travels in Spain and fond memories of San Sebastian!

A welcome wine tasting with Duncan Forsyth from Mount Edward Wines will launch the weekend festivities on Friday evening, followed by dinner prepared by Matakauri Lodge Chef Jonathan Rogers in the stunning dining setting overlooking Lake Wakatipu. Saturday morning will have Pete and Gavin sharing their enthusiasm for Spain at an “up close and personal” cooking demonstration, where they will chat to guests and impart some cooking secrets. Saturday evening is the weekend highlight, a tribute to the great dishes of Spain dinner prepared by Pete and Gavin, with Mount Edward wine matches.

The following weekend, April 18-20 (Easter weekend), the fun moves to Hawke’s Bay in the North Island for the Pete Evans weekend at The Farm at Cape Kidnappers. While the theme here is healthy, and Pete is a great ambassador for that, he swears that looking great and feeling great does not mean sacrificing flavour and fun!

Pete and Gavin promise a fabulous weekend at the Cape, culminating in a Saturday night dinner with dishes from Pete’ s soon to be released book, “Pete Evans Healthy Everyday”. Pete and Gavin will be joined by charismatic winemaker Tim Turvey from Clearview Estate who will co-host the dinner and match the wines to each dish.

The weekend at Cape Kidnappers kicks off on the Friday night with welcome drinks and dinner prepared by Lodge chef James Honore. On Saturday morning, Pete and Gavin will entertain at a casual cooking demo where they will showcase dishes from the book and some insider tips from Pete on how he maintains balance in life and manages to look trim, taunt and terrific despite a relentless pace.

The afternoon is free to relax and enjoy all the great things about The Farm at Cape Kidnappers – golf, spa, farm walks, etc., before the weekend highlight – the Saturday night dinner where Pete serves a dinner guaranteed to change the way you think about healthy eating forever, along with Clearview Estate matched wines.
