In Fort Worth, Texas, I was hauled before the judge for driving with expired license plates. The judge listened attentively while I gave him a long, plausible explanation.

Then he said with great courtesy, "My dear sir, we are not blaming you—we’re just fining you."

Progressive Dinner

Thursday, December 05, 2019

Progressive Dinner - Tuesday &Thursday 5:00pm + On Demand

BYO Drinks if you wish

The Progressive Dinner is legendary, and a fixture on Norfolk Island itineraries.  The perfect way to get a taste of the real Norfolk lifestyle, Baunti’s progressive dinner, takes you to three lovely homes in three completely different parts of the island.

To begin the Baunti Progressive experience, we take you to the northern tip of the island to enjoy pre-dinner nibbles at a clifftop home with amazing ocean views.  Your host, a Bounty mutineer descendant, will entertain you with his story of life on Norfolk and his fascinating adventures. 

Entrée is served at an old family Island home, renovated by its current owner for her young family.  As you enjoy her home cooked ‘wettles’ (food), she will tell you about her family and share her detailed research into the island’s remarkable history and cultural heritage. 

Your main course and dessert are enjoyed at a large family home in the south-east corner of Norfolk.  While your hosts serve your meal and make you comfortable, a close family friend and local identity will reveal some of his island experiences and tell you about some of the historical Norfolk practices and industries.

All you have to do is relax and enjoy the home-cooked food, bursting with the goodness of fresh island produce, chat with your fellow diners and soak up the stories of your island hosts as they share their passion for their little island paradise.
