Santa’s sleigh laden with Christmas culinary goodies is on its way to your Christmas dinner table, packed with creativity and fresh tastes.
The ‘northern lights southern style’ combo is attracting huge interest, bringing the best of both hemispheres to your Christmas table. It’s not all about fish, although superb local salmon does make a guest appearance.
Get together a group of friends, and hurry scurry to book your place. Your Christmas guests will love you for it.
In distance, Scandinavia is as far from New Zealand as possible, but there are strong similarities. Both reflect blended culinary influences, cherishing freshness and natural products from untouched environments, and tracing seasonal rhythms.
Excited by fresh possibilities, Ruth has created a menu with European, New Zealand and Scandi connections. Santa will recognise many familiar favourites, and love the relaxed New Zealand summery approach. Best not mention Rudolph, perhaps!
As always, Ruth thinks about the chief cook, favouring advance prep and no last minute drama. The presentation is aimed at satisfying contemporary Christmas celebrations, that may include several generations, blended families, "strangers at the table” and different food preferences and needs.
It will be a delicious little Nordic outpost in Te Horo. Don’t delay.
