welly on a plate

Congratulations to Tracey who wants to be burgered senseless but will also be enjoying a good time at the General Practitioner as well. This week, to celebrate Wellington on a Plate, thanks to the lovely Positively Wellington Tourism, we have a $100 voucher to Sojourn Cafe in the James Cook Grand Chancellor to give away.

It’s true that hotel cafes might not be the first place that springs to mind when you’re thinking about where to eat, but maybe it’s time to reconsider. Sojourn’s lunch special during Wellington on a Plate sounds delicious: 

Lunch Offer – $25 set menu

Choose any two courses plus a glass of Wellington regional wine, and a cup of tea or coffee

Smoked salmon timbale, filled horseradish, cream cheese, olives and artichokes or

Mozzarella wrapped in zucchini over aubergine galette with a vino cotto reduction

Chargrilled lamb rump over potato gratin infused by rosemary, served with chicory and radicchio or

Poached thresher shark laid over a Chardonnay risotto infused by lemon pepper and rustic tomato sauce

Strawberry and mint martini harmonised with 42 Below vodka and a lemon and lime sorbet or

Blueberry mousse cake with plum coulis and a chocolate garnish

Lunch wine:
Te Kairanga Estate Pinot Noir

Of course they also have a regular menu as well, and offer a grand High Tea every day as well between 10am-5pm. Jolly good!

So, in order to win the $100 voucher, we want to know: what have you initally overlooked in Wellington that turned out to be great? Leave us a comment before 5pm next Wednesday to be in to win when we’ll draw one person at random.
