New Zealand. A Culinary Country
New Zealand is an exciting destination for discerning foodies and those searching for an authentic paddock to plate experience. Producing and exporting quality fresh food has long been the backbone of our country’s economic prosperity. New Zealand has a rich and diverse culinary history and culture. And we have an international reputation for producing some of the world’s finest produce including our lamb, beef and venison, fresh and farmed salmon, seafood, dairy products, kiwifruit and new world wines.
Real Pasture to Plate
Quality ingredients, many sustainably grown and sourced straight from the person growing or making them, are the stars of New Zealand’s culinary culture. Buying tender spring lamb, fresh free-range eggs or milk straight from the farm gate, and fresh seasonal produce from a local grower makes for a truly authentic paddock to plate experience.
The pasture to plate philosophy is something we have embraced at Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand. We are committed to promoting culinary excellence while showcasing the best of New Zealand’s ingredients and supporting fair trade, sustainable seafood, organics, recycling, local and artisan producers.
Easy Access To Fresh, Seasonal Produce
Throughout New Zealand you’ll find an abundance of fresh, locally made or grown seasonal ingredients and produce. Food lovers have easy access to all kinds of fresh and organic produce, and in most cities and many towns you’ll find weekly food markets and supermarkets and food stores packed with fresh produce.
