A Mid-Year's Day Feast

To celebrate the launch of theringmaker.co.nz, the team and I had a Mid-Year's Day Feast!

In the Middle Earth calendar, Mid-Year's Day is a day of festivities, and also Aragorn and Arwen's wedding anniversary - so just the right day for a celebration.

The three-course meal was sponsored by local suppliers, including:
Philippe Butchery and Deli - beautiful baked ham and bacon
L'Artisan - traditional handmade breads - they supplied a ciabatta that made normal humans look like hobbits, the biggest loaf we'd ever seen!
Founders Organic Brewery - pints of Long Black
Middle Earth Wine - bottles of pinot noir
Addmore - Elderflower beverages - Elderflower juice
Pete's Natural - lemonade
 
It was a feast fit for a hobbit - here's the proof!
