Chef Tetsuya Wakuda & Dry River Wines at Cape Kidnappers
This will truly be a wonderful weekend at The Farm at Cape Kidnappers! It has been a long time in the planning. Tetsuya’s story and journey to success has been inspirational to us and we are delighted that we are able to bring celebrated Relais Chateaux Grand Chef Tetsuya Wakuda to Cape Kidnappers in August. Tetsuya is without doubt one of the world’s top chefs and his Sydney restaurant, Tetsuya’s, is a MECCA for food lovers. Tetsuya’s cuisine is unique, based on the Japanese philosophy of using natural seasonal flavours enhanced by classic French technique.
Accolades for Tetsuya are countless – His restaurant featured in Restaurant Magazine (London) World’s 50 Best Restaurants between 2002 and 2010, and this year Tetsuya was voted one of the world’s most influential chefs by the international press at the 2011 Madridfusion summit.
The degustation dinner prepared by Tetsuya will be sublimely matched with Dry River wines. Highly regarded Dry River winery is a fitting match to Tetsuya’s dishes and we are honored to have Winemaker Ant Mackenzie on hand to present the wines throughout the evening.
The weekend will kick off on Friday night with a cocktail reception celebrating and welcoming Tetsuya to Cape Kidnappers Lodge. Kidnapper Cliffs wines will be featured at the welcome reception. Saturday will provide ample time to enjoy the property or the Hawke’s Bay area, with the main event that evening!
