We love our food at Tiritiri Lodge. Our chef Tiffany Firth is now operating a catering business called Tiritiri Kitchen which includes Private Chef Services, Catering Services as well as a Pop Up Restaurant.
Tiffany believes that fresh, local, seasonal food is always the tastiest and she approaches it with a relaxed and rustic hand to ensure that the fresh produce is always the star. Read about Tiffany in the November 2009 Cuisine Magazine.
If you would like breakfast prepared for you during your stay you can arrange for Tiffany to come and design a breakfast menu that’s right for you. Try Tiffany’s special avocado hollandaise on local free range eggs with Aoraki smoked salmon or ricotta and raspberry hotcakes made with our homegrown raspberries.
Tiffany can also be booked to come in and cook you a special dinner during your stay.

Tiffany will showcase local produce including West Coast whitebait, Bluff oysters, salmon, lamb and venison. Otago is a wonderful fruit and wine growing area and in summer the stone fruit including peaches, cherries, plums, apricots and berries of all kinds are delicious and readily available. In summer go raspberry or cherry picking with the chef and then join her in the kitchen to learn how to make a wonderful raspberry shortcake.

This winter we grew our first crop and it is so delicious. We used a recipe from Stephanie Alexander-Elizabeth Schneider's baked curly kale. Next winter we plan to plant more.
