Peel back the fine-dining layer of Mangapapa Hotel, and settle in for an evening where Hawke’s Bay’s scrumptious root vegetables take centre stage. Award-winning Chef Norka will be taking them out of the dark underground, and using her incredible talent to showcase them in the light of a range of creative dishes, using meats sourced from local farms.

Once you’ve arrived at the stunning property, Chef Norka will then take you through a divine evening of canapés, and a four-course menu exploding with innovative flavours. Each course will be paired with a wine that have their ‘roots’ growing right here in the heart of the Bay – Stonecroft, Unison Vineyard, Squawking Magpie, Hawke’s Ridge, Alpha Domus.
