Hanami Blossom Gala Dinner

presented by the Lepperton Café

Celebrate spring with a five-course degustation evening starring Japanese-style dishes made with  
a Kiwi twist. 

With over 20 years’ restaurant experience, owner and chef Alex Dickie took over the Lepperton Café in May 2021 aiming to provide great food and coffee using fresh, local ingredients.  

Prepared by head chef Craig Taylor, the gala dinner will feature the best produce available, so expect Mokau whitebait, Taranaki-sourced beef, herbs, vegetables, citrus and seafood.  

All dishes will be wine matched. 

Get ready for an evening of delicacies, great company and background stories for both the dishes and wine.
