Top Wellington chef Martin Bosley says he grew up cooking: the men in his family have always cooked. Maybe this explains his ease in a kitchen, flipping readily between cutting edge fine dining, contemporary brasserie cuisine and family meals in his Listener column. He is passionate about Wellington, setting up the weekly City Market for artisan producers. Martin practices his food philosophies daily ... eat what’s in season, eat what’s local, eat what’s fresh. He believes food should please the eye as well as the palate, and dining is a social event, not just a culinary one. Martin will take a retrospective look at favourite dishes from home and restaurants like Brasserie Flipp; food that is special to him. He might push the odd culinary boundary, help you look at ingredients differently and almost certainly inspire you to new presentation heights. A rare opportunity to share the culinary heart of a local food hero.
