Ponderings and musings on the topics of eating, drinking and sharing

Art Deco picnic in style

Art Deco Weekend is on this weekend in Napier. It’s our annual excuse to dress up and eat with the nice china.  And we all know nothing goes nicer with Art Deco than a picnic hamper full of goodies.  The Great Gatsby Picnic is a highlight of the Weekend so do it in style!  It’s Sunday 21 Feb from 1-5! This year, add a contemporary twist to your annual Art Deco outing with a box of yummies from The Picnic.  It’s up to you what to include but here’s what sounds good to us (for two): 2 tomato and mozzarella galettes, 2 ham and cheese croissants, 2 verrines, 2 small salad boxes, some chocolates and a bag of bite-sized cookies, all packed inside a pretty picnic box ready to go!  Come in to The Picnic or call us on 06 651 0194.

Milo and Mitzy say Hi!

Thanks to our friends at Milo and Mitzy for the beautiful write up of what we’re doing here at Eat Drink Share.  Here’s a taster, read more (and enjoy the terrific photos) here.

On a personal note, what attracts me to Eat Drink Share HB is the way that Jennifer strives to new levels in each of her four eateries. Every one of them are different in their own way. They each bring something distinctive to the table.

Happy Valentine’s

Love is in the air thanks to Valentine’s Day this coming weekend. It can be a bit of a saccharine event ol’Valentines when it’s done with a box of Roses or a rose wrapped in cellophane.

When you love someone, or even just like someone a whole lot, it’s nice to use VDay as an excuse to introduce them to something new, or share something you enjoy with them, or treat them to an experience that’s not ‘everyday’.

We’re giving you two ways to make this happen. At The Picnic we’re creating some very special chocolate work. Flavour combinations are adventurous and each piece is hand created so that ticks the Something New box.

At Smiths we’re hosting a Valentines dinner on Saturday 13th Feb. This is a 6-course meal with three dessert courses. That’s Something Special done and dusted.

And if this Valentines sees you popping the question, keep us in mind for your Big Day. We love weddings! We can provide the cake, the favours and the dessert bar to top off your celebrations.

Love is sweet, enjoy it with us.

Bareknuckle BBQ Friday Night Pop-Ups

Auckland escapee Jimmy Macken is ‘popping up’ at Smiths on Fridays, starting 18 Dec and cruising on through the summer. Jimmy is Mister BBQ, Texas style. He’s a master of the art with a big-rig ‘pit’ he uses to authentically ‘bbq’ ribs, brisket and pulled pork. It’s a style of cooking Kiwis flirt with but it takes time to get right, not just cooking time but years of practice, time to tweak technique and perfect secret recipes.

Smiths is stoked to have Jimmy in the house, he’s big on energy, with big flavours to match. Come down and try ‘em: Friday 18 Dec, then 3rd, 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th January. It’s a Friday night cook-out with craft beer, picnic treats, ice creams on sticks, brownie with dairy whip, caramel corn.

Book a big table and round up a posse!
