Beginning April 23, Hillside Kitchen will be celebrating the joys of a plant-based menu. Going meatless for their brunch and lunch menus, this is the perfect opportunity to tuck into some gorgeous vegan and vegetarian options. Have a special someone in your life who doesn't eat meat? Treat them to the meatless, five or seven-course tasting menus.
Renowned for being a creative eatery that's out of the Wellington rat race, Hillside Kitchen does things with purpose. Using only the best, locally sourced foods, Root-to-Petal will prove to any sceptics that meatless meals are just as satisfying and delicious as those with meat.
Root-to-Petal Week is a nationwide initiative and conversation that celebrates vegetarian/vegan cooking, organic farming and aims to engage the general public and other restaurants around the joys and environmental impacts of a plant-based diet.
Auckland's Orphans Kitchen first introduced the concept in 2016, dropping meat from its menu for an entire month with the objective of making everything "delicious as fuck". This year the concept will expand to Gatherings (Christchurch), Sherwood (Queenstown), Black Estate (Waipara), Hillside Kitchen (Wellington) and Bistronomy (Hawkes Bay) who will all introduce the concept for the last week of April.
