Needless to say, we kicked off September with a bang. Bringing the Taste of New Zealand into Hemingway’s Restaurant & Bar, inviting the best of the best and what, you may ask, is the cherry on top? Glam photos, big laughs, a great night and some wicked shout-outs! That’s what we call “sweet as, Mate” (Kiwi Slang for “really awesome, friend”).
Stunning photos, an eye for the perfect shot and delectable food! The Travelling Foodie took stunning instaphotos and beautiful photography. This Foodie revealed that with all the stunning New Zealand tributes to nature, water and beauty, everything just melded together to create an unforgettable experience. And that was the point! Wanting North Shore Pie Co’s food to melt into mouths and hearts of our guests.
“Mouth-watering gravy, made with herbs, and combined with local cheddar cheese!”
– Travelling Foodie
On that note, Hangry Foodies absolutely nailed it with not only great photography but noting that the pies were flakey and layered with no fillers! Love is in the details and we love how Hangry Foodies called out North Shore Pie Co’s Bonnie for her incredible work. And as if that wasn’t good enough, they collaborated their efforts for a North Shore Pie Co giveaway! That’s definitely satisfaction guaranteed.
