Conor Wiremu-Mertens and Carly Black's pop-up dining series Chimera (pronounced ky-mee-ra) has previously seen just over a dozen diners assemble in a Grey Lynn basement for a feast created with a barbecue. For their next outing the ex-Orphans Kitchen head chef and professional coffee taster will take over the kitchen of Cazador for a one-off weekday lunch.

The long lunch arrives at the Dominion Road wild food restaurant in collaboration with Dan Gillet of Wellington's Wine Diamonds and sustainably minded eatery Gatherings. Led by chef Alex Davies, the Christchurch-based restaurant showcases the flavours of Canterbury using locally gathered and seasonal fare.

At the event on Monday, 15 October, diners will be treated to five courses with paired natural wines. On paper the menu includes mouthwatering items like cauliflower with bull kelp sabayon and sea herbs; salt-baked beetroot with goat curd and walnuts; a whole fish served with grilled cos heart, potato doughnuts and miso butter; plus buffalo milk sorbet with kaffir lime sea salt and finger lime.

Tickets are available by messaging Chimera directly on Instagram.
