Meatless Monday at Hillside Kitchen and Cellar

From New Zealand Society, 3:20 pm on 23 March 2016

Chef Asher Boote opened Hillside Kitchen and Cellar in Wellington in 2015 with business partner Jules Van Cruysen. It's a tiny place - but Asher has big ideas. He grew up on a farm just one valley away from the Bridge to Nowhere on the Whanganui River - and from there went on to train and work in Fox Glacier, Australia, Queenstown, London, Somerset, Channel Islands, Edinburgh, Auckland… And then Sweden, where he discovered the New Nordic Kitchen Movement, pioneered by Rene Redzepi and his restaurant Noma in Copenhagen.

Amelia Nurse joins Asher as he prepares for the third in his series of Meatless Monday evenings:
