Lost Generation Lunch

Why was the Jazz age just so jazzy after all? At Mangapapa Hotel we are going to pay tribute to the lost generation of American artists who during the 1920s found their voice again in Paris and created a new style and way of thinking that would give birth to modernism in America. Your afternoon will start with a glass of French bubbles and canapés on the lawn while you listen to music of the era. You will then be taken through a 3 course 1920s French inspired lunch done with a modern twist. Lunch will be paired with French wines and café or thé with your dessert while you are taken back into the world of Hemmingway and Fitzgerald.

Bus Transfer $17 pp return. Buses depart at 12.30pm from the County Hotel, Browning Street. Return Buses from 3.00pm onwards. Limited availability.

$90 per ticket. To purchase a ticket please visit: https://www.iticket.co.nz/events/2021/jul/wd21-lost-lunch

Our team of talented Chefs, created a customised, tea inspired menu, complete with traditional Sri Lanka love cake, tea inspired sorbets and dainty china cups brimming with yummy tea.
