Hamilton’s first premier food show to debut at Mystery Creek

Hamilton Foodies need not wait any longer! We are pleased to announce that Hamilton’s first premier food show will be making its debut on the 6th and 7th September at the versatile and popular Mystery Creek Events Centre. Our vibrant new culinary event will showcase the best in food, wine and the latest in delicious edibles and innovative products. The people of Hamilton and the Central North Island have long been crying out for a dedicated food show of their own, one that satisfies the most passionate foodie!

We will have a little bit of everything for everyone with celebrity chefs, tastings, the latest gadgets, and several specialised food areas. VIP Masterclasses will give visitors a chance to get up close and personal with their favourite celebrity chefs, while at the heart of the show, the Cooking Theatre will have demonstrations by well-known local and national chefs.

The Great NZ Food Show is proud and incredibly excited to announce that Annabelle White and Nici Wickes will be joining us at the event to cook and entertain our visitors. Return of the Local Gals…Yes popular television and radio cooking personality Annabelle White is an ex Hamilton Girl’s High and University of Waikato student and we warmly welcome her back home.

While TV chef and well-known food personality Nici Wickes is a current resident of Waikato, residing in her cute 50s bach at Port Waikato whenever she’s not traveling the world or eating her way around NZ. She loves the bounty that the Waikato offers, from some of the countries finest cheeses to fresh whitebait to local blueberries and more. Her job is to create fantastic food inspired by her travels and using these exceptional, locally grown and produced ingredients. And she admits “It’s a dream job and Waikato is a dream place to live.”

We think it’s about time we acknowledge the mighty Waikato and all it has to offer, and make our mark on the map as a premier food and wine destination. We have a number of award winning establishments, weekly farmers markets, boutique breweries and some fabulous wineries. There will be an area at the show called Waikato’s Best, purely dedicated to the Waikato’s finest produce and products. Along with an artisan alley to celebrate our fabulous NZ artisan producers and an area dedicated to all things gluten and allergy free.

The show is being organised by one of Hamilton’s most respected event management companies Classic Events, organisers of the iconic Balloons over Waikato and one of the country’s most successful exhibitions; the Camper Care New Zealand Motorhome and Caravan Shows, North and South. Classic Events are a team of experienced, creative and motivated event professionals and are sure to put on a great show.

Jon Calder, CEO Mystery Creek Event Centre said Classic Events were a significant and highly valued new client, “Following the recent extremely successful Camper Care NZ Motorhome and Caravan Show at Mystery Creek, we are delighted to be strengthening our relationship with Classic Events by hosting this impressive new show at Mystery Creek.

“We are incredibly proud that through taking a collaborative approach with our clients we are able to bring exciting new events like this to the region.”

The Great New Zealand Food Show will debut on 6-7 September 2014 at Mystery Creek Events Centre.
