Jeremy Schmid and The Officers Mess
Jeremy has now opened The Officers Mess, Auckland’s newest Wedding and Function venue on the North Shore.
Jeremy Schmid otherwise known as New Zealand’s ‘master of sausages and cured meats’, and up until recently, the owner and head chef of Dominion Road’s multiple award-winning Two Fifteen Bar and Bistro. Two Fifteen won Culinary Fare Restaurant of the Year Award in 2010 and Metro’s Top 50 Auckland Restaurant every year since opening in 2009.
A passion for charcuterie, developed whilst studying at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley, has lead to numerous awards.
