I moved to Ōtautahi Christchurch with my family in 2005 and as a chef, I have been operating small spaces and pop-ups throughout central Christchurch for the last decade. Gatherings Restaurant, where I am the owner-operator, one of many chefs and general all-rounder, is the most recent iteration of my ideas and it is turning six soon!
At Gatherings, we are excited to be a part of the dynamic and ever-evolving food scene here in Aotearoa with relationships dotted all across the motu. One of our proudest achievements with Gatherings was in 2019 (a pre-pandemic world) when we hosted pop-ups at both Rochelle Canteen in London and Cantina in Paris. Truly an unforgettable experience!
We have championed natural wine since day one, with our food focus and offering being about sharing, celebrating the here and now, and showcasing the beauty of our own backyards. Flavour drives everything, as does an understanding and desire to better our earth, through sustainable practices and ideas.
At Gatherings, we have a real focus on minimising waste, empowering and encouraging growth within the local food economy by shopping locally or directly, paying the living wage as the bare minimum, and generating a healthy ecosystem within the hospitality framework.
