It’s hard to believe, but March 24 is our last lunch with The Golden Dawn. We’ve done seafood, we’ve done vegetarian and last month, we went slightly overboard with a meaty feast that had everybody raving, even visitors from Wellington.

So while we’re sad to say this is the end of the series – for this year, at least – this one is a cracker. It’s an end-of-the-season feast – celebrating everything that is good about this time of the year, the last of summer warmth, the best of the harvest, even a little game and, of course, apple pie. As always, much of it will be cooked out of doors over a charcoal fire – chef Bex is a genius and we can’t wait.

Roasted figs w/ goats curd & honeycomb

Smoked eel, pickled beetroot & horseradish
Air-dried smoked pork w/ parsley broadbeans

Coal-roasted Cadrona merino lamb w/ herb oil & preserved lemon

Spiced pumpkin, toasted hazelnuts & quince jam

The important stuff: tickets are $56 a head and available from Under The Radar.
