Taste! with Guest Speaker Peter Gordon
Northcote Point Community Crèche Fundraiser Night, Wednesday 30 July 2014, 7pm
For the past few years, residents of the Northcote Point and Birkenhead communities have had a glamorous highlight in their calendar of local events - the Northcote Point Community Crèche "Wharf Night". Each year an elegant event has been organised to raise funds for the Crèche at stunning local venue The Wharf. Sitting next to the Harbour Bridge and surrounded by the water, The Wharf provides breathtaking views of the city skyline and the twinkling night harbour and is the perfect backdrop for a gorgeous evening of local bonhomie.
This year the chosen theme is 'gastronomical' and celebrates the growing wealth of artisanal and high end producers in the local area. The Crèche is excited this year to have their evening launched by New Zealand's great international chef, Peter Gordon, fresh from a whirlwind schedule of restaurant openings, the launch of his newest book Everyday and an exciting new project completed this month for television. Peter Gordon is one of New Zealand's best known and loved chefs and despite his international reach and being known as 'the godfather of fusion cuisine', he is a true champion of New Zealand cooking and eating.
Peter Gordon will be speaking and signing pre purchased copies of his book, Everyday, then guests will have the chance to wander among tables of delightful food and drink with local connections and meet the talented local people involved in producing it all. The evening promises irresistible foods, some very special wines and craft beer and even a champagne tasting!
To top this wonderful evening off, supper will follow a silent auction, spot prizes and a magnificent big ticket auction of prizes, all generously donated by the Crèche's generous and ever-supportive sponsors.
Tickets are priced at $45 single/$80 double if purchased before 27 June and Peter Gordon's book is available for pre purchase at a reduced price of $45.00.
