Taste your way around New Zealand, and you'll discover food and wine that's original, world-class, and fresh from the source.
Each time I travel to New Zealand, I find new culinary delights, more delicious wines and more often than not a few taste bud surprises.Margaret Swaine Culinary travel writer
New Zealand food goes way beyond fish and chips and barbeques – our chefs have developed a distinct Pacific Rim cuisine. Expect to indulge in plenty of seafood (like greenlipped mussels, crayfish (lobster), Bluff oysters and fresh fish), award winning cheeses and of course our famous lamb. You should also expect a laidback, friendly atmosphere wherever you eat; we Kiwis love to keep things casual.
