the evening finished off with an Indian smorgasbord in Gisborne, a country town near the farm. unfortunately i left my camera in the car. the food and service were both impeccable (as is delightfully common in family-run Indian restaurants), and the whole experience was further proof that authentic and delicious cuisine can be found in the most unassuming places.
so, what does one do with 4kg of blackberries? stay tuned.
