The Cult Project is an all-inclusive supper club with a philosophy of tradition, sharing and low waste. Founded by chefs Carlo Buenaventura and William Cook, the novel way of dining first appeared in 2016 via several pop-ups across Auckland, taking influence from the pair's heritage; Carlo hails from the Philippines while William is from the UK.

For the supper club's next pop-up the pair will take over St Kevin's Arcade eatery Gemmayze St with a festive Filipino feast. Traditionally served on Christmas Eve, Noche Buena — which is Spanish for 'night of goodness' — is a time for extended families or friends to gather together and enjoy an evening of eating. Typical dishes served at Noche Buena include roast pig, goat stew, sisig, fried chicken and macaroni salad.

On 9 December The Cult Project will recreate the Filipino tradition with a modern Kiwi approach. The festive multi-course feast will be matched with wines from Tincan. Tickets are $85 per person.
