Long lazy lunches could have been invented for Springfield, Ruth and Paul Pretty’s Te Horo property.  Sweeping lawns, gracious verandahs, stately trees and colourful flower beds provide a perfect backdrop for a lovely long relaxed group lunch for 10 or more.

Many family celebrations and office groups have enjoyed a bit of hands-on helping to create and then devour delicious pizzas from the wood-fired oven.

 

Ruth’s latest idea continues the “relaxed and tasty” theme   …  as participants load up skewers of marinated meats and veges for the barbecue grill and whip up simple flatbreads to complete a sumptuous Middle-Eastern style feast.  Of course a yummy dessert to follow.  All under the guidance of Ruth’s chefs. Then  …  kick back and enjoy the garden. No dishes.

So talk to us about getting your friends, family or colleagues together to enjoy your own spring or summery gathering.  And you too will be ‘rapt!
