Join us for a month of workshops, demos, masterclasses, tastings and launches at Ponsonby Central’s Sapphire Room Series. Learn from passionate foodies in their specialist area of expertise, be it how to master the art of pasta, host a dinner party or learn the Japanese art of kintsugi.


For the month of July, The Sapphire Room in Ponsonby Central becomes one of the learning hubs of Eat Drink Love Ponsonby, offering a constantly changing lineup of demos, workshops, tastings and makings.

Whether it’s sitting back with a glass of wine and listening to one of our visiting experts wax lyrical about food, or a hands-on workshop where you get to feast on the night’s work – there’s something on offer every night to encourage foodies to look, learn, taste and create.

Dates, prices and hosts all differ. Head through to Ponsonby Central’s booking page for most information.
