Thanksgiving isn’t a holiday New Zealanders typically celebrate…but we think it should be!  Especially now we’ve tried Chef Steve’s Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie mousse!

Steve whipped up this wee treat to say thanks to our amazing suppliers, partners and team for all their support over the past 21 months of border closures. We have missed our International friends enormously, and are always thankful to be surrounded by the incredible locals we work with.
