A love of local produce
It’s safe to say our head chef Jason Brown is crazy about food – creating the end dish, sourcing local product and meeting the folk who produce it.
This is why, when he’s not foraging on the Lodge estate and beyond, Jason spends a fair bit of his time outside the kitchen visiting local producers, tasting their wares and dreaming up delicious ways to incorporate new products into his ever-growing retinue of divine dishes for appreciative guests and Lodge restaurant patrons.
Whether just down the road here in Marlborough, located in the top of the South Island, or just over the Cook Strait in Wellington, some of Jason’s favourite local produce suppliers include:
Hellene and Simon, Cranky Goat Ltd
Mike, Meaters of Marlborough
Daniel, Kaikoura Cheese
Terry, Ora King Salmon
Emily, Old Road Estate
Favian & Flavian, Viavio
Martin Bosley, Yellow Brick Road
Melvin, Nuggety Creek Farm
A sample menu for the Lodge
Cranky Goat curd ravioli, pea, chorizo
North Canterbury lamb rump, babba ganoush, courgette, whipped feta
Ora King salmon, sweetcorn, shallot, cavolo nero
Coconut parfait, stem ginger, blueberry, pink pepper
Tallegio, Kalamata olive
