Like any festival worth their weight, we have some amazing producers from all across the country at the festival. There is something for everyone… Burgers, whitebait, fresh seafood, ice cream, wild venison, coffee, bacon and avocado rolls, international foods and more!
We’ll also have the wonderful Peter Gordon on stage in the Culianry Pavilion.
Peter Gordon was born in Castlecliff, Whanganui, and collated his first cookbook aged just four. At 18 he moved to Melbourne where he lived for five years, training and working as a chef in various restaurants. Eventually his spirit of adventure and culinary curiosity led him to travel through Asia for a year from Indonesia to India. This life-changing experience was to become a major influence on his culinary style, and he went on to earn an international reputation as the ‘godfather’ of fusion cuisine. Peter has two restaurants in Auckland, The Sugar Club and Bellota, and lives in Hackney, London, where he is co-founder of ground-breaking artisan doughnut company, Crosstown. He also works with the culinary team at Air New Zealand and in the European ‘ambassador’ to Fisher & Paykel.
