Super delicious tarty lemon thyme tart from @la_fourchette_nz ๐Ÿ‹ The lemon was deliciously sharp, making my mouth tingle with joy ๐Ÿ˜ŒWith every spoonful the pastry would break away freely and easily, just the way I like it โœจ Thanks for taking me @mala_koka ๐Ÿ˜˜Can't wait to go back and try more goodies!

Nothing like some sweetness and a pop of colour to brighten a dreary day ๐Ÿ’›

The experience at @pasture_akl was so special last night ๐Ÿ˜ŒLooove how many of their dishes hero the ingredients in their โ€˜naturalโ€™ form and flavours - without doing too much to the ingredients yet doing plenty at the same time (if that makes sense)! ๐Ÿ˜For example, the โ€˜reconstructedโ€™ artichoke, where the skin was dehydrated(?) and filled with raw and cooked artichoke combined together to reform itself. It was crispy, delicious and texturally so so good! ๐Ÿคค
.
Sitting at the Chefโ€™s Pass surrounded by the open kitchen, we got to enjoy watching the lovely chefs cook, plate up and multitask beautifully. The fire used to cook our dishes burning at the corner of our eye was mesmerising โœจโœจ
.
One of my favourite dishes of many was this agria potato dish and kombu seaweed dish. The potato is dehydrated then rehydrated again creating this AMAZING texture, where it felt like we were eating soft squishy potatoes with this lovely chewy 'skin' topped w creamy sauce from the potato and shavings of black perigold truffle ๐Ÿคค
.
The Tangelo & Yoghurt dessert dish was also DELISH โค๏ธ Loved the contrast of temperatures w the frozen yoghurt and warm base filled w juicy lively segments of tangelo and crispy meringue(?). Topped w fennel flowers that had this gorgeous liquorice like flavour was perfect. So so good! ๐Ÿ˜ญThis is not very descriptive, but you have to go try it yourself! It left us salivating for more!
