"For this cooking demonstration Rafa and I wanted to show people how simple it can be to make a showstopping centerpiece for any dinner party with a few tricks and chef hacks.  After this masterclass you will confidently be able to put together an amazing feast for your friends and whanau without the stress. This time around we will be giving you our very own recipe and method for the best roasted eye fillet you will ever eat, teaching you how to cook it perfectly without fail. We will also show you a versatile semifreddo dessert you can tweak and make your own. We look forward to seeing you there to enjoy a long lunch together over a couple of drinks in the courtyard at moraine lodge", Chef Tom.

Starting with a cooking demonstration by the Retreat Chefs, then languishing over the resultant cuisine which is healthy, elegant and cooked from scratch from local produce.  Wine match suggestions from our carefully curated wine cellar are presented to you by the Retreat chefs.   After lunch or between courses, stroll around the Lodge environs or try your hand at a friendly game of croquet on the lawn.  Moraine Lodge overlooks the Ben Ohau mountain range and tawny Mackenzie Farmscape.
