The Miele Chef's Table with Leslie Hottiaux

Join French chef Leslie Hottiaux from much-loved food and wine bar Apéro for a night of simple yet deliciously refined cuisine.

Trained in France, Leslie Hottiaux moved to New Zealand six years ago and has worked in some of Auckland’s top restaurants, including The Grove and Baduzzi. In late 2014, she and her partner, Ismo Koski, opened Apéro Food & Wine and it quickly gained a reputation for its simple yet flavoursome menu and beautifully paired wines. Leslie says the aim of Apéro is about creating a welcoming restaurant "based on good food, great wine, and above all else, good times".

In the intimate setting of the Miele Experience Centre, 14 guests will be treated to a cooking demonstration from Leslie, using the innovations and expertise of Miele appliances. You’ll be able to partake of her delicious creations at a sit-down dinner – hosted by Dish Food Editor Claire Aldous and complemented by wines from Opawa Winery and Nautilus Estate ­– where your questions will be answered so you can recreate the magic at home.
