Thanks giving

Thanksgiving Potluck Dinner. When we were building the lodge, we suggested to guests, who rented small log cabins taken down since, if they would like to bring their Thanksgiving feasts, put them on the lodge bar and share in a potluck festival at a giant festival table. That first dinner became a tradition. Today it is one of the really popular get togethers for guests at the lodge. Come and celebrate Thanksgiving with us this year.

Argentinian Asado

Ignacio Cespedes was a chef at the lodge and he brought with him specialised knowledge from Argentina, called Asado. Originating when huge herds of wild cattle roamed the interior of Argentina, before settlement of the Pampa, gaucho’s cooked whole animals over open wood fires for hours at a time. Lodge at Pine Cove has a close connection with Argentina and celebrates an Asado feast on the beach each year. Come and savour whole pig, lamb, Texas ribs and other delicious foods, sauces and desserts, from the home of the gaucho.
