This beautiful dish currently features on the Summer menu at Church Road Winery Restaurant, Taradale, Napier, and was created by our Executive Chef, Jenny Parton.
The Quinoa feta balls are a delightful accompaniment to the dish. The crispiness of the quinoa and the soft “melt in your mouth” texture of the feta is a pleasure on the palate.
