NZ Rigging Director has a very happy NZ Food Birthday

  • Suprise! Bart Thompson and his wife Kim returned home from a massage to a house cleared of toys and daily living. The house instead filled with candlelight, Spanish music and the laughter of his friends. Little did he know that behind the scenes of the last month, Kim had been squirreling away decorations and furtively emailing me, to arrange a tapas party just for him.

    Thanks to my wonderful friend Briar, who handled all the floral decs, aesthetics, floor service, and running around on the night.

    A guest arrived with a noteworthy cheese platter. The platter included a huge hunk of the imported Spanish cheese Manchego and a pottle of Membrillo. Made from ewe’s milk, Manchego is a hard, pale cheese with a particular tang. It was great to be able to serve this with its complimentary Membrillo or quince paste. Sarah, I like your style, thanks.
