MEDIA RELEASE 02 July 014

Ocean to Table Kapiti Style Returning by Popular Demand

PartyPerfect Catering & Kapiti Business Projects are delighted with ticket sales so far to attend their Visa Wellington on a Plate event, Ocean to Table Kapiti Style, on Saturday 23 August and Saturday 30 August 2014.

More than half of the 120 available tickets have sold. The Waikanae Boating Club is supporting this event which the Organisers’ are thrilled about. On the day you will hear about Kapiti fish varieties and availability, and see how to fillet and best prepare fresh fish. There will be other demos including knife sharpening by BCE Catering Equipment and fish smoking. Artel Gallery of Waikanae will be sprucing up the venue with a rockpool theme.

Jeanine van Kradenburg of PartyPerfect says “lunch will be good honest fishy treats with local Kapiti fish being the hero of the day”. Helene Judge of Kapiti Business Projects goes on to say that “other locally sourced products will also be included in the menu as Visa Wellington on a Plate is a festival to showcase and celebrate regional food and beverage – we are very lucky to live in Kapiti, historically known as the foodbowl to Wellington, as we have wonderful food choices on our doorstep”.

The iconic Otaihanga Boating Club will be the venue for this fishy lunch (12-3.30pm). To book tickets, go to http://www.wellingtononaplate.com/events/ocean-to-table-kapiti-style/
