Breakfast Series: Orphans X The Tasting Shed, May 19

After the success of the first Orphans Breakfast Series with the legends from Cazador, we’re happy to announce our second instalment with Ganesh and Jo from The Tasting Shed.

This is a ticketed event, where we invite another restaurant or chef to collaborate on a 2-course breakfast at our place on Ponsonby Road.

The Tasting Shed will join us on Friday 19 May. Courses will be accompanied with paired coffee and juice, and tickets cost $45pp. 10% of the proceeds will be donated to the non-for-profit Share The Love Waitakere. These guys feed West Auckland families who would otherwise go hungry.

To book, please email Lou at eat.orphans@gmail.com. You can choose any time between 7.00am and 10.30am. If for whatever reason you need to be picky on time, please email us now. We’d hate for you to miss out.
