Waterfall Bay February 2008

We are very excited to announce that Brad Farmerie will be our guest chef for the 2008 February Dining Series at Waterfall Bay. Brad is the chef behind the celebrated PUBLIC restaurant in New York and serves a style of cuisine described by Peter Gordon as “the magpie approach to food, a free spirited fusion of international flavours”.

Brad moved to the UK in 1996 to work under some of the most influential chefs shaping the culinary revolution taking place in Britain. He obtained the 'Grande Diplome' at Le Cordon Bleu and then worked at such acclaimed restaurants as Coast, Chez Nico and Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons. Most influential to his own style was his experience working with Peter Gordon at The Providores and Tapa Room. Brad has travelled extensively throughout the Middle East, Northern Africa and Southeast Asia resulting in his creative, global style of cuisine that New York magazine has described as "free spirited fusion" and a menu that the New York Times raves "swings for the fences with each and every dish".

The dining series coincides with the Marlborough Wine and Food Festival. Dinners will be held on Friday 8th, Saturday 9th, Sunday 10th and Monday 11th February with lunches on Sunday 10th and Monday 11th.

Tickets are $265 per person (incl. GST) including return boat travel from Picton, and a five course wine and dinner match. For reservations contact Jan Whillans:, (03) 572 9408
