The Chef's Table Pop Up Restaurant

May 22, 2017

[vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_column_text]


Snow is in the forecast for this coming week, the town is beginning to fill up with shredders and, to coin a now all-too familiar phrase, winter is coming.

With the change of season now very much on the mind, we are very excited to announce that Rippon is once again teaming up with Chef Sam Metcalfe for a 5-week opening of The Chef?s Table this winter. ?Sam cooked up a storm last winter at The Chef?s Table and we are thrilled to have him back again this year.? says Rippon?s Events Manager Yohann Bourdin. ?We had a wonderful mix of apr?s-skiers, families, locals and winter visitors alike, many of whom returned time and again, and the word seemed to spread like wildfire. ?With such a positive reception from the community, it took very little to convince us all that we should reopen for the coming season?

Other than the finer points of the menu, very little has changed from last year. The roaring fire, the very local drinks list, the communal tables and the sharing plates will be very much in evidence along with live music every Sunday afternoon from 4pm. Remaining too will be the chef?s table itself in the Rippon Hall kitchen, seating up to 10 people where you can watch Sam and his team working their magic. ?One of the great things about cooking for The Chef?s Table,? says Sam, ?was knowing so many of the people enjoying their evenings with us. Wanaka may be growing but The Chef?s Table reinforced what a great and close-knit community we still have here. To be cooking for so many friends and acquaintances added a very informal and special element to the pop-up. The openness of the terrace for apr?s-ski and having the chef?s table itself in the kitchen really added to the enjoyment and allowed far greater interaction with the guests.?

The Chef?s Table opens at The Rippon Hall on Friday June 16th (perfectly timed, Yohann points out, for Cardrona?s opening day) for 5 weeks with the final night of opening Sunday July 23rd . Open 6 days (closed Mondays) from 4pm for apr?s-ski drinks and dinner. Bookings are strongly recommended to avoid disappointment. Larger lunches available where possible with prior bookings. For all enquiries and reservations, please email pop-up@rippon.co.nz or call 021 152 9707.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_gallery el_id="gallery-101953" medias="865,866,877" style_preset="metro" gutter_size="3" screen_lg="1000" screen_md="600" screen_sm="480" single_overlay_opacity="50" single_padding="2"][/vc_column][/vc_row]
