Maddison’s Paddock to Plate celebrates Canterbury’s best food

Paddock to Plate 2

Maddison’s Restaurant’s inaugural seasonal Paddock to Plate dinner on July 14th is set to be a very special occasion for Christchurch foodies. The seven-course dinner showcases Canterbury's best produce, as well as offering palate cleansers and wine-matching from Pegasus Bay Wines, and is set to be an outstanding showcase for both the Maddison’s team and Canterbury’s fantastic produce, with every ingredient sourced as locally as possible.

A representative from Pegasus Bay Winery will talk guests through the wine and why it’s so perfectly matched with the food, and chef Simo Abbari will also elaborate on the special dishes on offer during the evening.

Take a look at this menu and get excited in a mouth-watering way:
