MEDIA RELEASE 1 September 2014

Ocean to Table Kapiti Style well & truly served

Visa Wellington on a Plate, Ocean to Table Kapiti Style served up two magnificent days in Kapiti on 23 & 30 August by serving two wonderful seafood immersion experiences.

“What more could you want for a great lunch time event, says Jeanine van Kradenburg of PartyPerfect Catering – two full houses of 60 appreciative diners, sun shining on the banks of the Waikanae River and the bounty of both land and sea from right on Kapiti’s doorstep being served”.

Seafood is fickle by nature so the second lunch could not serve up smoked eel so freshly smoked Kahawai was offered instead – it was moist and beautiful and so easy to prepare using a standard smoker. We also changed the crab dish to a light crab salad (rather than a seafood broth) given the second lunch was a very sunny day so this enhanced the subtle flavour of the Waikanae Paddle crab.

The menu also included Thai-style Mussels, fresh Oysters on ice, New Zealand Scallops, Kaimoana Trifle, Tuatara beer, Ohau Wines, Kapiti Artisan Bakehouse breads and hero of the day, a whole baked Blue Moki for each table. Limoncello Cake with berry compote & Soprano Limoncello, Dancing Goat cold extraction coffee from the Kapiti Coffee Company and Divine KapiTea concluded the day.

Each lunch included demonstrations on how to smoke fish, prepare mussels, the 101 on Kapiti seafood varieties and how to look for freshness, sharpening your knives by BCE Catering Equipment and filleting fish by Starfish Kapiti. Artel Gallery’s rockpool theming also enhanced the venue.

Ocean to Table Kapiti Style pulled a team of talented people together to share their love of the ocean in the form of education and top quality culinary fare. “It was a memorable day out and one that truly showcased what Kapiti is well known for in its fish”, says Helene Judge of Kapiti Business Projects.
