Hopping good Pils

Keen on hops but not so sold on the bitterness you get with an IPA? How about a pilsner with the hops you know and love, but at a ‘sessionable’ level of 5%? Behemoth Brewing Company has just the answer with Hopped up on Pils, the latest addition to its craft beer collection.

Al Dente by Raffaela Delmonte: Culinary adventures and festive celebrations for companies, families, associations, clubs, and everybody who wants to enjoy the best of Italy in New Zealand. Al Dente was founded in 1997 by Italian chef and author Raffaela Delmonte, to share her love and knowledge of Italian regional cuisine, along with the fun and the simplicity that being Italian means. In her words, “Cooking ….is the subtle thread which unites my diverse family, as well the only proven method of communicating the continuity of our traditions to my daughters by recreating the special atmosphere that is only possible when you are seated around a table with those you love.”

Al Dente has grown to provide a range of services including corporate events and meetings, private functions, music evenings, cooking classes, organic food courses and team building outings. The Delmonte's home, Villa Romantica is a large, rustic Italian house in a peaceful valley of rolling green hills with a view out over the sea to Tiritiri Matangi. The large professional kitchen is perfect for hands-on cooking instruction and down-home fun. A spacious external patio offers generous space for outdoor gatherings around a wood-burning oven. The beautiful venue, just 20 minutes North of Auckland City, is a welcome change from the conference centre format and is now a favoured location for many of Auckland’s leading companies.
