The Auckland Fish Market Seafood School has partnered with soon to be completed Park Hyatt to offer new seafood cooking classes.
Participants will join international celebrity chef Jonathan Pasion as he teaches how to prepare the ultimate seafood feast, perfect for entertaining guests.
Pasion is Chef de Cuisine at Onemata, the new signature restaurant at the anticipated five-star hotel, Park Hyatt Auckland located on Halsey St at the Wynard Quarter just metres from the Auckland Fish Market.
He will share his passion for seafood, teaching the class how to make three delicious recipes.
Expect to learn tips and tricks from this top-class guest chef during his auditorium demonstration, while enjoying a complimentary beverage. Then get hands-on preparing the demonstrated dishes, with Pasion available to answer any questions you may have. The final stage of the evening is sitting down together to enjoy the meal that has been created.
Maui native, Pasion, began his culinary career early on, influenced by his Filipino heritage and their love and respect for quality and traditions. He has many fond memories of learning and understanding home cooking with his family in Paia. Pasion’s Filipino roots have embellished all aspects of his life, including his cooking style.
Pasion joined Hyatt in 2014 as a cook and has since progressed as the Chef de Cuisine at Andaz Maui’s Ka’ana Kitchen, one of the most popular restaurants on Maui, before joining the Park Hyatt Auckland team in 2019. With a wealth of experience and passion, he was also crowned winner of The Good Taste Series, an annual global contest that aims to cultivate and celebrate cultural diversity within Hyatt.
