There's nothing more satisfying than eating a plate of food after having watched it tantalisingly being prepared before your hungry eyes. The eating is made so much more glorious, which on Tuesday meant each mouthful of Kyle Street's already exquisite cuisine was taken to new heights as 20 guests enjoyed it around a long table at Parnell's Kouzina appliances showroom.
Guests were welcomed with a Depot classic on arrival - freshly shucked Tio Point oysters served with Nautilus Cuvée Marlborough NV Brut. The charismatic and ever-charming Kyle Street then took to the stage to demonstrate a series of beautiful late summer dishes that showcased the very finest New Zealand produce, using Gaggenau appliances to bring out their best. Guests then enjoyed the fruits of Kyle and the Depot team's labour around the long table.
