Summer Flavours At Dine By Peter Gordon

Summer Flavours At Dine By Peter Gordon

Peter Gordon’s third visit to his self-titled restaurant – dine by Peter Gordon - since it opened in April this year, brings with it seasonal variations to the menu that allow for lighter eating over the warmer summer months ahead.

The New Zealand born international celebrity chef says the new menu which is now on offer at SKYCITY’s signature restaurant (located at the SKYCITY Grand Hotel, 90 Federal St Auckland city), is virtually all new, with a focus on the new seasons’ vegetables and produce as well as premium New Zealand seafood. He says however, a few of the more popular dishes from the previous menu have been retained.

Gordon believes the aim “is to change over half the menu regularly - every few months – to ensure regular visitors are satisfied, keep up with the seasonal variations in produce and to keep the chefs on their toes as well as interested in their work.” Following hot on the heels of the launch of his new book – Salads: The New Main Course - which was released here in New Zealand earlier this month, the new menu at dine by Peter Gordon offers a few tributes to the cook book.

“The ‘Salad of fried Zany Zeus Haloumi’ for example is adapted from the Salads cookbook for dine’s summer menu,” he says. He describes the new summer menu as “lighter, fresher but still deliciously tasty with some new funky ingredients.” As well as the new summer menu, dine by Peter Gordon has also recently introduced its special Xmas menus and a new Express lunch menu – offering two courses for $35 per head.* Gordon continues his involvement in other dining establishments throughout Europe including

The Providores and Tapa Room in London which he co-owns, the Gourmet Burger Kitchen – an award winning group also in London, Changa and Muzedechanga – both in Istanbul, Turkey and he consults regularly to Public in New York. Peter Gordon returns to New Zealand and to dine by Peter Gordon again in January 2006 then again in March to oversee the kitchen and operations of his new and only “homeland” restaurant.

In March, Peter Gordon’s visit will include a presentation at the 2006 WACS congress (World Association of Chefs congress) at which some 800 leading chefs from around the world will be hosted at SKYCITY Auckland Convention Centre. As well as this and his work in the various restaurants he’s involved with, not to mention his ongoing charity support and the development of his new book, Peter has another busy year ahead.

Gordon and his partner, Michael McGrath, have also recently invested in a vineyard in the Waitaki region of New Zealand, which he will be visiting in March 2006 to participate in a food and wine event alongside renowned New Zealand winemaker Michelle Richardson. ‘dine by Peter Gordon’ is Gordon’s only restaurant in New Zealand. It is open daily for lunch and dinner and reservations can be made on 09 363 7030. * menus attached or available upon request.
