Get a fine dining experience from the comfort of home

Have you ever dreamed of being able to give your guests a fabulous fine dining experience from the comfort of your home, but don’t have the confidence, time, or skills to do it all yourself?

Enter Wild Roots Culinary Concepts. Michelin-trained chef Nikki Pennefather, who has worldwide experience in restaurants, lodges, and mega-yachts, is out to change the way we entertain. Whether it’s dinner with friends, business entertaining or intimate weddings, chef Nikki will help you deliver a wow-factor fine dining event.

Once you’ve discussed your needs together, Wild Roots will work with you to create a bespoke menu your guests will love. Wild Roots use fresh, seasonal produce, working with local ethical producers, and even source some ingredients from their lifestyle property in Taupō. If you select the private chef option, you’ll receive a full private chef experience where everything is taken care of, down to the prepping, cooking, plating, serving, and cleaning up.

If a private chef isn’t your thing, opt for the Food Box, a professionally designed, five-course meal that’s already 90% complete. Using techniques like curing, sous-vide and slow-roasting, everything arrives perfectly prepared for you to finish off (and take all the credit). Wild Roots meals all come with easy instructions on how to finish off, plate and serve your own creations – perfect for those wanting to add their own flair to a flavoursome meal.

Turn your next dinner party into a night to remember with Wild Roots Culinary Concepts.
