Outstanding Food Producer Dinner Series

We’ve tasted hundreds of products to find New Zealand’s outstanding producers – now it’s your chance.

Join us at one of the dinners throughout the country showcasing winning products from the 2017 Outstanding NZ Food Producer Awards.

You’ll enjoy four delicious courses matched with award-winning wines and craft beer and meet outstanding local producers and hear their stories.

We’re in a special treat at our first events in the Outstanding Food Producers Dinner Series. La Pancetta Chef/Owner Rachel Priestly is also an Awards winner. Rachel won Paddock Crafted 2017 with her Spicy Sicilian Sausages, made under her Prodigal Daughter brand, and she’s promised to include them on the menu. Palate Restaurant Chef/Owner Mat McLean judged the Outstanding Food Producer Awards and he is planning a menu with emphasis on winners and finalists from Waikato and the surrounds; such as Jersey Girl, Cilantro Cheese, Southern Belle Orchard, Sweetree Honey and Zealong Tea.
