Congratulations to the Simpson family, Dad Phil scored a hole in one at the Marton Golf Club on 9 November.
In New Zealand we don’t have Michelin Stars – we have Cuisine Magazine’s famous 1, 2 or 3 Chef’s Hats. Proud to say Three of our Coastal Lamb Challenge finalists received awards. Congratulations to Palate and Hippopotamus (2 Hats) and Bellamy’s by Logan Brown for being awarded their first Hat.
A highlight of October for us at Tunnel Hill was hosting Addison, the exec chef at the Waldorf Astoria in Beijing, and his friend John for a couple of nights while they were on a tour of New Zealand. They had a good look around the farm and even helped in the yards. This time it was my turn to cook – though Addison did whip up a superb lamb loin and frekah starter.
