Celebrate the Great Flavours of Christchurch

Celebrate the Great Flavours of Christchurch

The Food Show Christchurch is kicking off at Horncastle Arena with an incredible line up of local talent showcasing their wares. From the producers of a new type of probiotic drink for New Zealand, to the team delivering vegan meals in Christchurch.

Taking place 6 to 8 April, there will be a huge spotlight on Christchurch talent, including the likes of local foodies Anna Worthington, Giulio Sturla and Jax Hamilton in the NEFF Cooking Theatre.

If you want to feel proud about the city you call home, Cantabrians can peruse the aisles to see some exceptional local talent, and make the most of the exhibitors who have come from out of town, just for the show.

Have a chat with these exciting exhibitors:

Kvas: For the first year ever, Christchurch-based brewers The Kvas Company will be at The Food Show exhibiting their unique probiotic beverage, kvas. They are currently the first and only producer of kvas in New Zealand, a lacto-fermented drink made using traditional coriander-flavoured rye bread as a base.

Green Dinner Table: First time exhibitors Green Dinner Table are a vegan dinner delivery service based in Christchurch, these guys deliver all the ingredients you need to make meals without any animal products.

Meet the growers: Getting your fruit and vegies during your weekly shop is second nature, but where does your five plus a day come from? The Countdown Fresh Market will give you a chance to meet the growers and answer this question, including South Island growers such as Ewers and Southern Cross Produce.

For those who enjoy a tipple: The Brandhouse Drinks Master classes will unravel a world of mystery. What is the difference between prosecco and Champagne? Why is Marlborough sauvignon blanc so unique? Why are craft beers taking the world by storm?

Some other great local exhibitors to check out include, Italian Food Company Casa Massima, Button Family Crumpets and coffee roasters The Sailor’s Son.

Treat your taste buds this April and book your ticket to The Food Show at www.foodshow.co.nz. Access to all show features and NEFF Cooking Theatre demos is included in your ticket.
