“These events are a great opportunity to introduce people to Bracu. It was fantastic to see so many new faces enjoying the dishes we create – it’s what we love to do.

“I enjoy working with the team at Beef + Lamb New Zealand, as I am able to get out into the industry to share ideas and energy with other people, it’s not something I get to do at Bracu very often which is rewarding,” says Mikey.

Mikey is renowned for taking inspiration from his environment at Bracu and reflecting that in the style of dish he produces through incorporating the seasonal offerings from the Estate’s gardens and passionate local producers.

“Our aim tonight was to express what goes on around us, the ‘terrior’ of Bracu on the plate,” says Mikey.
