Authentic Asian
Otahuna Lodge
28th Aug 2014

Ever wanted to take the stress out of hosting a dinner party? Building upon the great popularity of Otahuna’s past cooking lessons, the 2014 series will focus on how students can plan the ultimate soirées for their guests with each lesson featuring different styles of cuisine. Expect to master easy recipes meant to impress and learn tips that will best allow you to prepare before the event so that you can concentrate instead on hosting your guests.

These lessons - limited to a maximum of only ten guests each - will offer participants the chance to learn first-hand cooking secrets and practical techniques from Executive Chef Jimmy McIntyre, who has been profiled in Cuisine, Dish, Delicious, Gourmet Traveller and many other publications. Jimmy’s "potager to plate" philosophy utilises the freshest local ingredients, drawing upon the year-round selection from Otahuna's organic potager garden.

Tariffs are $220 per person and include: a welcome coffee and brief tour of the house, 90-minute cooking demonstration lesson, meal with wine, recipes from all dishes prepared during the lesson, weather-permitting tour of the potager garden and orchard and GST. To reserve space, please phone the Lodge on 03 329 6333 or email:

Authentic Asian

Saturday, 30 August: 10am - 3pm

The melting pot of cuisines represented by the nations of South and Southeast Asia offer colours, textures and flavours which can't be found in any other part of the world. Jimmy's passion for Asian food has been developed through his own travels. These unique classes will culminate in a banquet showcasing a diverse menu of aromatic curries, popular street foods, and a range of dishes found in Malaysian, Sri Lankan, Thai and Vietnamese cuisines.


Otahuna will also offer private dining at the Lodge this winter for groups of 6 to 14 people. Private dining offers non-resident guests the opportunity to sample exquisite fresh seasonal cuisine in Otahuna’s opulent formal dining with its extraordinary, original Victorian wallpaper and ornately carved fireplace.
