Te Papa Chef's Showcase

On 13 July 2021 the Foundation held a dinner in celebration of a recently donated artwork.

Served on Versace dinnerware, the beautiful dishes were created by Te Papa's innovative chefs Dinesh Rajamohan, Kyle Warldon, and Arkadi Hakobyan. Their vision was to celebrate New Zealand's world class-ingredients, highlighting the unique flavours and quality.   

Each course was expertly paired with stunning wines from across Aotearoa, see the menu below.
