Synonymous with fresh New Zealand produce prepared beautifully in a laid-back dining room, Auckland's Depot Eatery has built a reputation on the collaboration between Al Brown and talented executive chef, Kyle Street.
In their recently released cookbook, Depot: Biography of a Restaurant, they share the dishes that have become intrinsic to their iconic status: oysters with tangy vinaigrettes, pillowy fish sliders and light and silky Sugar Pie.
Kyle Street took time out from the busy kitchens of Depot and Federal Street Delicatessen for two nights to host a cooking demonstration at the Miele showrooms in Auckland, where he prepared a menu of signature Depot dishes from the book, with insightful tips on how to get the most from the recipes with Miele appliances.
The 14 guests each evening then got to sit around a table and enjoy the fruits of Kyle's labour, accompanied by Marisco wine.
Look out for our next demonstration with Mikey Newlands of Bracu restaurant - details to come on the Dish website soon.
