You are hosted in the home of Fiona & Chris Read, located between the soaring peaks of the Kaikōura mountains and the wild Pacific coast of Aotearoa New Zealand, for a culinary adventure that celebrates the season.

The dining table seats ten guests and while you’re savouring the flavours of Kaikoura, you’ll hear stories about how Hapuku Kitchen grow the food, how they forage from the mountains to the sea and the people behind locally sourced ingredients.

Claim your voucher for this experience now to book your spot & meet other people interested in good food and great company.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

While we haven’t yet had a chance to experience Hapuku Kitchen first-hand, we were so inspired hearing the story of Fiona & Chris & their passion for using locally sourced, seasonally fresh ingredients in all of their experiences, we knew we had to get them on board for our customers for experience themselves. The Chuffed team are arguing over who gets to go and ‘quality control’ this experience first!

Offering travellers food and refreshments is a kiwi tradition, so why not pair it with a relaxing river cruise to see the Haruru Falls up the Waitangi River

Depart from Paihia Wharf and join Darryl and the crew on board the Ratanui, a custom-built river cruising boat, made for gliding through the water of the calm inland waterways. This 2.5 hour cruise will take you along the Waitangi River, where the bird life is abundant.

The friendly crew are a mine of information and love to share the history of the area. Relax in the comfy leather seating with a glass of your favourite drink, and mingle with the other travellers – you never know who you’ll meet.

There is a cash bar for your convenience.

All food is cooked fresh onboard and served straight off the BBQ. Start with Tiger prawns and Green-Lipped mussels accompanied with bread and dips. Then choose from beef sirloin, lamb or steamed fish for your main. There’s even a little kiwi marshmallow specialty to round off your meal.
