Good Neighbour Degustation Dinner

Written by Stephanie on September 25th, 2015.      0 comments

Last night we shouted my parents out for dinner to thank them for all the things they do to help us out.  They help us pack honey, paint bee boxes, harvest honey, etc.  We would be lost without them! 

Anyway, we went to our local, Good Neighbour, for a 5 course degustation dinner matched with Good George Beer and Mills Reef Wine.  A beer and a wine were paired with each course and we had to rate whether the beer (grain) or wine (grape) matched best with the food.  For each course the brewer and wine maker got up to talk about the food and how their product would match it.  It was very entertaining to say the least!  It was a lot of fun!  The wine only just won!

I was so busy enjoying the delicious food that I didn't get any photos!  Apart from the menu below.  I highly recommend the food at Good Neighbour the chefs Matt, Alice and the team did a fantastic job!  Do check out the beers and wines on the menu, there were some very yummy flavours coming through!

Featured in the meal was our Kirikiriroa honey along with Meyer Cheese.  As you see below it was a smoked Cambridge duck, Meyer Gouda gougere, Sweetree Honey glaze, chilli lollipop, walnut, smoke aroma.  It was so yummy!
