Meet Dot: Breakfast at Riverstone Kitchen

24 Sep

$35 (+ service fees) - Includes Breakfast / 9am

Presented as part of the inaugural Waitaki Arts Festival. In association with Riverstone Kitchen.

The Queen of Riverstone Castle

There’s nothing unusual about Dot Smith other than her willingness to work harder, longer and more creatively than almost anyone else you can think of, while holding on to dreams as big as the Waitaki sky.

As a little girl growing up on an impoverished dairy farm north of Auckland, Dot knew absolutely that she would live in a castle one day. And she will too, as soon as she’s finished decorating and furnishing the one she and her husband Neil have been building for the past five years on the edge of the irrigation pond – which is now the moat.

Ask Dot about the ins and outs of building your own castle and enjoy breakfast banquet-style at the award-winning Riverstone Kitchen.
