Tickets being sold in aid of Project Promise
Renowned international pastry chef Natasha MacAller will demonstrate some of her skills and recipes during a public evening at flourflower in Kerikeri on Thursday 7 November.
Tickets for the event cost $20 each and are being sold at Paper Plus in Kerikeri. The event is being organised by the Rotary Club of Kerikeri and all proceeds will go to Project Promise, the drive to raise funds for the construction of Northland’s Jim Carney Cancer Treatment Centre in Whangarei.
MacAller, who works in London and New York and lives for much of the year in Kerikeri, is launching a cookbook called Vanilla Table. The ticket price will include a cocktail from the book and a cookery demonstration using some of the recipes.
Her ‘less is more’ approach to cooking and pastry has made her stand out among her peers and continues to catch the attention of the Los Angeles Times, Bon Appetit, Food & Wine and NZ’s Life and Leisure and Dish magazines.
Natasha, or Tash as she’s called, is a former ballerina and known internationally as the Dancing Chef.
“These careers may seem worlds apart,” she said. “But they’re both performance arts. Creative disciplines that demand dedication and hours of painstaking practice.
“They both offer a fleeting experience, whether it’s a whirl across the stage or the taste of something special.”
