Dine MasterChef style at Stratosfare Rotorua

Posted on Wednesday, 28 January 2015

Have you heard? New Zealand MasterChef winners Kasey and Karena Bird will be hosting a live cooking demonstration at Stratosfare Rotorua, where they'll launch a new dish designed especially for our menu!

The live demo will be held on Thursday, February 5 at Skyline Rotorua's Stratosfare Restaurant & Bar. The sisters will cook a new Mediterranean-inspired chorizo and tomato mussels recipe, featuring mussels from the restaurant’s tidal mussel tank.

Guests who would like to meet Kasey and Karena and sample their new Stratosfare dish are invited to arrive from 5.30pm. The live cooking demonstration will take place between 6pm and 8pm, with full dinner buffet and tastings included.

Karena and Kasey say the new dish features their own Kiwi spin on classic flavours used in Spanish cuisine.

"We love cooking at Stratosfare Restaurant & Bar because of the fantastic location – it has the best views in Rotorua – and we also love the wonderful team," the MasterChef winners said.

"People can come and catch up with us and have a chat, and also sample some of our cooking, which will be a regular feature on the Stratosfare menu."

Ticket price includes dinner and return gondola ride. The cost for the package is $64 per adult, $29 per child (5-10 years) and $39 per child (11-14 years). For gondola annual pass holders, tickets are $49 per adult, $18 per child (5-10 years) and $25 per child (11-14 years).

Book online or by calling 07 347 0027.
