Analiese Gregory joins the Hillside Forage

Go outdoors with Analiese and forage at her favourite Wellington spots, learning about, and picking the food that grows wild. Then Analiese and the Hillside crew will crank up the BBQ and cook up a feed right before your eyes while Analiese regales you with stories from her wildly successful new cookbook How The Wild Things Are, which you will take home to devour after the event.

Sharing is Caring

Come together around the communal table, eat great food, and share the experience.

This is a chance to meet, share stories, and be thankful for one another. This meal will also help others with $20 from each ticket donated to Kaibosh, a charity that helps redistribute potential food waste to those who need it most.

The First Gardens of Wellington

Throughout its history, Wellington has been a food basket. Large swathes of the city were once cultivated as gardens by Maori, the Hutt valley was dominated by market gardens, green belts have provided foraged fair past and present, and back gardens have been producing an ever-changing array of fruits and vegetables.
The Hillside fixed menu this festival is dedicated to telling this story.

Dish Description: Kūmara representing the first gardens of Wellington.
This dish is only available as part of a fixed menu.
