DAY 3 FIRE: DARIUSH LOLAIY OF CAZADOR AT CREATIVE MATAKANA

Dariush Lolaiy, Metro Magazine’s Chef of the Year came from his restaurant Cazador in Dominion Road, Auckland to create a fabulous feast at the Sawmill Brewery Matakana. Dariush demonstrated how to deal with a duck, and presented all his courses matched to the Sawmill’s fabulous boutique beers, ably assisted by his wife Rebecca Smidt. Other local artisans were present, talking about sausages, bacon and buffalo milk. It was a fabulously casual and friendly lunch event with some of the tastiest food ever.
