Feast Matarki (The Supper Club at Hapuku Kitchen)
- Duration: 3 Hours (approx.)

- Product code: PGRRHM
The Supper Club at Hapuku Kitchen offers a unique dining experience in our home, inspired by our natural surroundings. Our set menus are a celebration of the seasons and everything the wild, rugged region has to offer.
Our dining table seats ten guests and while you're savouring the flavours of Kaikoura, you'll hear stories about how we grow our food, how we forage from the mountains to the sea and the people behind locally sourced ingredients.
Get a group of friends or family together and book the entire table of ten, or book a seat and meet other people interested in good food and great company.
For thousands of years here in the South Pacific, we’ve been celebrating the winter months (Pipiri) by drawing close and feasting. For Māori it was a time to give thanks for the food of our amazing country Aotearoa/New Zealand. This time was signalled by the rise of the Matariki (Pleadies) constellation and these stars represented the water, earth, ocean, air and the bounty that came from them. It was a time for renewal, the end of one growing year and the promise of a new one ahead.
It’s a moment to reconnect with where our food comes from and to recognise the truly incredible ingredients we grow, catch and make here. It’s also a time to acknowledge the manaakitanga or hospitality that is an intrinsic part of who we are as kiwis.
