At the Stamford Plaza Auckland
Jake and Elle Harrison Australia’s culinary siblings are packing up their cake mixer this September and heading to the Stamford Plaza Auckland. The brother and sister team both still in their early twenties, wowed viewers on Australia and New Zealand’s highest rating television series My Kitchen Rules. At the Stamford Plaza they will be treating guests to a high tea inspired by the colours and flavours of spring. Renowned for their adventurous style, this is High Tea as only Jake and Elle can do it.
“Welcoming Jake and Elle to the Stamford Plaza is fantastic for the Hotel” says General Manager Paul Evans “They are both so vivacious and cheeky and their food speaks for itself. Our High Tea is really popular but we like to keep it current and fresh, so we are delighted that Jake and Elle are behind this new High Tea experience”.
The Stamford Plaza is growing a reputation for pushing the boundaries when it comes to the ‘traditional high tea’ award winning chef Michael Meredith has had his high tea menu in the hotel for the past four months. Meredith’s menu has attracted thousands of guests where they have dined in the elegant lobby of the hotel since early May.
“The menu is a true collaboration of our cooking styles” says Elle, “Jake tends to be more laid back and enjoys entertaining guests as much as the actual cooking”.
“Elle is definitely more straight down the line than me” says Jake “Her dishes are presented beautifully, with real detail given to the colour and the composition of what’s on the plate” “Jake can be a little more controversial than me, but he always pulls out show stopping dishes” adds Elle.
Launching on Sept 14th and 15th at just $39 per head guests will have the chance to have their food prepared by and meet Jake and Elle on this weekend only.
Reservations are essential and can be made by booking at www.knightsonalbert.co.nz.
