The Interview: Michael Meredith
Michael Meredith is one of New Zealand's truly great chefs, a magician who first sets you at ease with the solicitous attention of the staff at his gently beautiful restaurant, then dazzles you with unexpected feats of flavour and texture. Mr Morris, which opened in the former Cafe Hanoi space at Britomart late last year, has already received a perfect score from Jesse Mulligan at Viva, and rave reviews from guests. Britomart's Melinda Williams caught up with Michael about how he creates his dishes, why giving back to the community through charity dinners is so important to him, and the special delivery that arrived in his home after Christmas.
