Join MC TV3's Mike McRoberts, as he takes you through a culinary mission of epic proportions!
Celebrate the innaugural NZ IceFest with fine cuisine from renowned Christchurch chefs Richard Till, Jonny Schwass, Andrew Brown and Tina Duncan. Join them on a culinary mission to capture our 100 year relationship with Antarctica.
Experience a four course Antarctic menu starting with cuisine inspired by the heroic explorers of "The Ice" through to 'science on a plate". All capped off with an extraordinary taste of MacKinlay’s Rare Old Highland Malt – the replica edition of Shackleton’s whisky found preserved in ice for almost 100 years under Shackleton’s cabin.
The whisky will be presented by none other than NZ’s finest dram-storyteller - Michael Fraser Milne and the superb menu will be presented by Christchurch favourite - White Tie Catering.
Come for the food, the Antarctic yarns and the unique setting of the UC Geo Dome at the Hagley Park Ice Station.
A taste experience not to be missed!
