Helen Perry 271 8036 or firstname.lastname@example.org Tell me abouT iT Dining & Leisure IT TOOK just three ‘cheeky’ moves last Sunday night to secure Kelly Kaihea from The Beach House at Bucklands Beach a Top 10 spot in this year’s Masterchef New Zealand series. In a ‘nose to tail’ pork exercise in which contestants had to bring home the bacon with their culinary treatment of an allocated cut, Kelly was given pig’s cheek to deal with. Some might of thought she was given the raw end of the rind but clever Kelly - who confessed to shaking, and feeling exhausted as she approached the judges – came up with three treatments which earned high praise. Ray McVinnie, pronounced her efforts as “sensational,” and Josh Emett said she delivered an incredible dish; three great, interesting, different techniques which fitted the brief of nose to tail cooking perfectly. Then, Simon Gault summed up by saying, “I don’t know about you guys but I’m often asked, ‘do you still enjoy doing Masterchef?’ And when somebody brings you a dish like that, that’s why I like coming back here because it just AWESOME to get food like that!” And after comments like that, many regular Beach House patrons will be sitting on the edge of their restaurant seats in anticipation of the next few weeks, when they’ll find out if Kelly can stand the heat in the kitchen. I hope so! – H. Perry Kelly turns up the heat! By HELEN PERRY IWONDER how many foodies have discovered La Casserole? Not a winter stew recipe or a fancy lidded cooking pot but rather the relatively new French-influ- enced, culinary jewel somewhat buried in the heart of Highland Park Shopping Centre. Although launched late last year, I only recently managed to visit the venue and, boy, have I been miss- ing out. Calling in at the start of a long weekend, on the off chance that no booking was needed, husband and I arrived around 7pm. With surrounding shops closed, the inner courtyard was quiet. However, the comfy, wicker-style armchairs on the deck were almost totally occupied with patrons enjoying the warm evening air. Inside, only a couple of tables were taken so we opted for one just next to the wide open French doors – perfect. Inspecting the interior I was impressed with the transforma- tion which has seen coffee bars and cafes come and go from this address over the years. Now, the contemporary, mini- malist décor has an air of sophisti- cation. The eastern end features an eye-catching artwork plus a small lounge area in front of a wall- mounted gas fire – very appealing; especially when the weather cools. The other end was more open with French doors letting in plenty of light. The new owners have also clev- erly installed roller blinds to one side of the counter; I’m guessing to conceal a food cabinet. Frankly, the blinds toned so perfectly with the arctic walls, I didn’t even notice them until I’d been there some time. While the new look is most attractive, we were there to test the French-style menu and, on this occasion, we were resolved to order both an entrée and a main. As it turned out we added to that, gar- lic bread and were also presented with a complimentary aperitif, a gesture that warmed us to this establishment. While I was disappointed not to find escargot (snails) on the menu I did note the onion soup; perhaps not for this time of year, but defi- nitely on my ‘must come back for’ list, when winter rolls around. Garlic bread, however, is an anytime event and La Casserole’s take was mouth-wateringly good. It arrived parsley-buttered with a whole bulb of garlic cloves, topped with blue cheese, wrapped in tin- foil and oven-baked. Squeezing the soft, buttery garlic from each clove was a revelation – we piled the almost sweet-tasting garlic atop our bread and munched Ragout of flavours REVITALISED: Comfortable seating on the deck outside La Casserole.
