High Tea by Cordis

Celebrate the festive season in style

Capture the magic of the festive season from 15 November to 31 December with a whimsical selection of sweets and savouries from High Tea by Cordis, handcrafted to delight your senses!


Tempt your palette with locally sourced Farmgate pork rillettes with rhubarb gel and baby chard, or marinated Big Glory Bay salmon roulade served with NZ salmon caviar and Melba toast. Or enjoy the festive flavour of a spiced mulled wine raisin scone.

For sweet tooths, there's a whimsical selection of Christmas treats. Walk in a 'Winter Wonderland' with a chocolate and coconut lamington with cherry mousse, then join Santa on his Summer vacation with a caramelised rum, pineapple and lime curd tart with a mango and passion dome. Linger over a flute of Louis Roederer Champagne and enjoy the festive ambience


On Christmas Day, there are delicious additions including a turkey, cranberry and brie quiche and a little, crispy vegetable pot. Be "Berried in Snow' with vanilla and Champagne cheese cake with blood peach and raspberry mousse. Or help unwrap 'Santa's Present', a delightful blend of strawberry, rhubarb, almond and cream. A glass of sparkling wine accompanies this delectable high tea, creating the perfect Christmas celebration.
