Coromandel Town’s Pepper Tree Restaurant & Bar will showcase some of the region’s best cooking when it hosts the Coromandel Culinary Experience on the 4th of July.
The Coromandel Culinary Experience has replaced the Coromandel Café Crawl and the popular Homegrown Festival, which has been cancelled this year.
Its aim is to provide a dining experience to remember, rather than being a competition between the restaurants of Coromandel Town, Whitianga and Thames, as the Café Crawl was.
Diners will be treated to a special three course meal, with each participating restaurant contributing a signature dish. Complimentary Monteiths beer will be available on arrival.
Each of the venues serve typical Coromandel fare, a distinctive combination of meat, seafood and seasonal vegetables. You can be sure you’re in for a treat!
Having won last year’s Coromandel Café Crawl Pepper Tree Restaurant and Bar was chosen to host the inaugural Coromandel Culinary Experience.
Pepper Tree has a menu that makes great use of wild ingredients such as mushrooms and pork. Sample items from their dinner menu include roasted pork hock with honey and ginger glaze, beef tenderloin and coq au vin.
Success Café, like many Coromandel restaurants, has a reputation for seafood dishes. The mussel chowder is a winner.
Coromandel Mussel Kitchen is unique among restaurants because it actually cultivates and harvests its own mussels as well as cooking and serving them.
So, if you’re hankering for a taste of land and sea, that’s genuine Coromandel cuisine, don’t miss this event. Get in quick as it will sell out!
