Celebrating Local with our Local Long Artisan Lunch

Allely Estate

🍽️✨ Join us at Allely Estate for an unforgettable celebration of our local community and cuisine at the “Celebrating Local with our Local Long Artisan Food” event! Last year, our community spirit soared high as we raised over $70,000 for Muriwai in a fundraiser fuelled by our love for all things local.  Let’s now enjoy a long lunch together.

🌳 This year, Allely Estate’s visionary owners, Peter and Catherine, teamed up with the renowned local businessman, Andy Cummings of River Valley Meats & Kumeu Meat Processors, to turn a dream into reality. Together, they bring you a long lunch extravaganza that showcases the best of our local flavours.

👨‍🍳 Head Chef Kevin, in collaboration with an array of local businesses (see below), has curated a mouth-watering menu that perfectly complements the richness of our community. From 12:30 to 5:30 pm, indulge in a culinary journey featuring a cheese appreciation talk by Dan from The Artisan Group, covering all things cheese and wine pairings.

🍷 Elevate your experience with an exquisite selection of wines from Kumeu Valley Wines and Cooper Creek, or savour the craftsmanship of local brews from Hallertau all in one place.

🎶 Immerse yourself in the ambience of the afternoon with the soulful tunes of local musician and songwriter Jaz Paterson. It’s an opportunity to connect with neighbours, friends, and family while savouring the diverse and delectable foods our community has to offer.

Save the date, bring your appetite, and let’s celebrate the richness of local flavours, community spirit, and the joy of coming together over a long, leisurely lunch.
