Win a double pass to Taste of New Zealand
Taste New Zealand has given me a double pass to give away to one of our blog readers. The tickets are valid for Wednesday, Thursday or Friday sessions.
Picture Auckland’s Victoria Park on a warm afternoon amongst a buzzing crowd, a delicious plate courtesy of Rick Stein in one hand and a food-matched glass of Mount Riley Pinot Noir in the
other. Leisurely meander amongst over 140 kiosks displaying the finest New Zealand artisan producers, sample boutique wines, oil, chocolate and breads.
If that wasn’t enough to satisfy your senses there is an all-star line up of award winning chefs such as Rick Stein, Gary Rhodes, Josh Emett, Annabelle Langbein, Warren Turnbull, Jonny Schwass & Ben Bayly who will be sharing their knowledge and culinary skills with you.
Make sure you see other fantastic Festival features including the Fisher & Paykel Kitchen, Waiwera Chef’s Table, Peroni Bandstand, The Whiskey Shop Masterclass and the Small Producers Market. Sample tasting size servings from a selection of New Zealand’s top restaurants serving their signatures dishes:
Roasted Kiritane crayfish with Beurre Café de Paris and Vivian cress.
Dallows at Sale St
Cured big eye tuna with verbena jelly, avocado, lemon oil dust and Japanese style tomatoes.
NZ oysters with Vietnamese dressing, crispy shallots and coriander.
Charcoal grilled sumiyaki grain fed Angus beef eye fillet, garlic teriyaki sauce, carrot and Gobo burdock puree.
