Find Out What's On The Inventive Tea-Inspired Menu At The Upcoming Viva Sessions

The elegant three-course lunch will whet your appetite ahead of a fashion show, music performance and a fabulous auction

For the upcoming Viva Sessions, the head chefs in charge of lunch found inspiration at the bottom of a teacup.

Over three courses, Dilmah loose leaf tea will be used to elevate seasonal spring dishes in a number of inventive pairings.

Think confit Akaroa salmon with a ginger tea and kombu crumb, Earl Grey-soaked raisins and pistachio rolled chicken, and lemon tart served with tangerine, rose and grapefruit tea-spiked ice cream. Dilmah tea-infused cocktails and wine will be served alongside.

Following a sell-out Viva Sessions in March, next month’s event at Shed 10 on Auckland’s Waterfront will also include a live music performance by Moses Mackay from Sol3 Mio, a fashion show debuting top labels from Smith and Caughey’s new season, and a fabulous silent auction. 

Not to mention a generous goodie bag valued at over $200 to take home. Put the kettle on and secure your tickets now.
