Guest Chef Night
Sorry, this event’s been and gone
|Thu 31 May ’12, 6:00pm||
Where: Rata Room Restaurant, NMIT, 322 Hardy St, Nelson
Restrictions: All Ages Licensed
Michael Daly, author of the acclaimed book 'Find it Eat it' will be creating a four course set menu based around what he forages.
Michael Daly is a foraging enthusiast and fully trained chef who has worked as the Executive Chef in major hotels around New Zealand. He left a position in Hamilton to fulfil a lifelong dream, taking to the road with his wife and young family in a housetruck. He has travelled around the country, and still continues to do so, foraging and exploring.
Foraging for wild foods is gaining momentum around the country. People are more and more keen to eat organic, local fresh food and this book makes it apparent that there is plenty available – for free – in our own backyard or local neighbourhood.
Michael promotes the health-giving, nutritional benefits of foraging, using wild ingredients to add flavour and zest to the recipes. From chickweed and potato samosas to wild mock strawberry and passionfruit tartlets, there is plenty of opportunity to experiment with new ways to incorporate wild foods in your everyday cooking – Michael shows just how easy it is.
There will also be a book signing and chance to meet Michael after the dinner.
